I'm led to believe that the remnants of the fuel (Not sure if it's the Methanol, or Nitro) attracts moisture, promoting corrosion, therefore, coating the engine internals with oil prevents corrosion, lengthening engine component life.

Cheers

I would STRONGLY disagree. If it is nitro you are running after run is a MUST if you like your bearings and engine. After run oil displaces the water that is attracted to your engine. Plus, nitro is corrosive anyway, and it burns extremely dry. The only reason oil is in the fuel is the same reason it runs in a dirt bike, its just 2stroke. That doesnt mean that afterrun is not necessary. If it was standard unleaded gas you would be fine, but unleaded fuel is not near as aggressive as nitro. WD is perfectly fine, the 3in1 at the hardware store fine, air tool oil, fine. There is no need to pay double for a so called PURPOSE designed oil, because, well, there are already a million types on the shelf that will work. I wouldnt recommend motor oil, but just for the sake that its too thick to get between some of the tollerances in the motor.

In my opinion, its just silly not to run ARO. It only takes a second and its adds many more runs to the motor.

One added thing, i keep a can of Chemtool in my bag, before i change a plug, or pull it for ARO, i squirt a charge in there to rinse out the dirt to prevent dirt entering the motor. Turn it up side down, blast, remove plug. Works great.

if i'm not mistaken, the only time to use after run oil if you not going to run engine for a long period of time? or if you tear the engine down you use it as well...i hardly use after run because mostly the fuel have enough oil to keep the motor lubicated like byrons or sidewinder plus i notice if you keep doing after run maintenance it does do alittle wear on the sleeve(you put drops in the motor then cover with rag or papertowel then hold it down on the start box for 5-8 sec) IMO i don't use afterrun only when i tear down the engine for clean up
