I run O'Donnell also but I have used Sidewinder in my 1/10th scale and got a bad batch and switched to O'Donnell and never had a problem since

I've been thinking of trying these other fuels but

I bought 5 gallons of O'Donnell before prices went crazy and still have 3 left

if you can tell i don't race offroad like crazy

Yea I've thought about getting those 4 gallon cases...I usually just race locally so I can always run to the lhs to grab a gallon real quick if I need to. Right now I'm running low on Odonell and I'm thinking of grabbing a gallon of Sidewinder or Cold Fusion at Hobbytown...Pretty much all they carry is Odonell, Sidewinder, Trinity, Cold Fusion, and Traxxas crap.

Yea I dont know if it is new or not, but I just recently heard of it. Almost 90% of the people in the FSORS are running Byrons or Cold Fusion fuel. This past weekend Cold Fusion had 6 or 7 total drivers in the A-Mains. 2 in Pro Buggy (Trey Cook, Mike Jones), the rest were in the sportsman class.

Oh yea, Pro Buggy A Main also had JR Mitch, Ryan Eckert, Billy Easton, and Jason Ruona in it. They don't run Cold Fusion, but that lets you know that it isn't just a bunch of normal everyday racers in the Pro Buggy class. Results don't lie. =)

I've always used byrons 30%. However i will be switching to eb mods fuel. Ed should have it in by the beginning of next week. The dyno doesn't lie, it flat out makes more power.

They did dyno comparisons with EB mods fuel against the other major brands and it made more power? Thats interesting. I always like having more power.

I have always used Byron's because of availability, but after going through several O.S. V-specs and not getting more than 3 gallons (one only got 1 gal), i called OS and they said Byron's was not recommended for their engines. So no more Byrons or V-specs for me.

This is the best fuel.
EB MODS FUEL

Why: Cause of countless hours of R&D in the lab, and on the track.
EB Mods didn't just make a phone call and slap a sticker on it.. like most of all the other fuels on the market.
