What do you have available local? You don't want to be paying hazmat fees. Any of the top name fuels with 20% nitro should work just fine. If you don't have much experience tuning a nitro engine I recommend you stay away from the low oil race fuels.

Cold Fusion works great in any vehicle

I prefer a 20% Nitro 12% oil pecentage for a Stock Traxxas Motor

But, you have many "good" options out there. Traxxas fuel is carried in most local shops and works well. Unless ordering quarts it;s usually not worth ordering online for fuel. But if your local shop can not help you it may be worth paying to have a case shipped to you.

I use Meccamo fuel. It's the best fuel by far

Traxxas fuel is JUNK. It has over 18% oil and makes my engine run bad.

Werks 30% is good fuel, Ive been running that for the past two race seasons. No after run oil needed, it leaves a nice light golden coat of oil behind that wont rust your motors.
