Yep.

Lean when running more Nitro content in most cases.

thats a contridiction to the previous post you just agreed to.. the previous post said "Not that I switch back and forth with nitro content, but I always thought if you switch from 20 to 30, your engine will run faster, harder, therefore requiring a richer needle setting"

I was always told leaner for lower nitro (20%) and richer for higher nitro
(30%) cause more nitro and more power = more heat..

He's not contradicting himself. You forgot he asked "So was I wrong?" CarCrazy said "Yep."

I switched from 25% to 20%. I notice my engine runs cooler, it seldom overheat, and the good thing : I don't notice power lost.

I'm glad I made the switch.

Well, I'm currently experimenting with things like diesel in my 2.5, until I can get a real motor in my truggy

But I plan on running 30%, as that's what my LHS has in stock most often...
Which is also what you should look for so you're not constantly re-tuning just because your fuel isn't in stock
