There is a shortage of Nitro to the USA. China is the major exporter of Nitro, and due to the Olympics being in China there is NO shipping of any explosive materials allowed in or out of China.
Which is why I ask rallyebmx, why does it matter were it's made.. All the USA fuel manufactures buy the same Nitro Methane. The oil packages used is what makes the RC Fuel different from one another, and there are thousands of different oil combination's.

You are correct.. The fuel is produced in the S&W factory.. BUT by no means is it a duplicated formula. Eb Mods fuel is Ed's own custom blend that he has been testing for years. NOT THE SAME OILS OR % AS TQ OR ANY OTHER BRAND OUT THERE. Ed actually does testing.

Default oil

Thats cool that this fuel has Castor oil in it. I was always told Castor oil was great for our motors but the fuel I have been using for the last year has been Synthetic only + castor smells so good.
