Ive been running OD %30 race for 4 years now and have never had one issue with it. After a day of running my motor has a nice coat of oil on the inside, no build up on the piston. I guess if you guys are that worried about temps then go with the byrons I for one have a good clean running engine that sounds and runs just fine. Some guys at my track have been running the EBmods fuel with good results as well.

this may not matter much as i'll have my Reedy 21 this week, but nontheless i'd like to know the facts about oil content...
if I was running low oil content fuel, I"ll be dedicated about using afterrun oil after every race/bash day, but considering what I hear about Odonnel, nah.. I'll just use afterrun if I'm going to store it for a while.. but I never do.. hehe.

Agreed! That's the great thing about the odonnell fuels. The oil package that they use may burn your eyes and turn your pressure line yellow, but it also protects your engine. The only time I use ARO is when storing my engines for an extended time period. Even then I don't really think it is needed with the odonnell fuels. I have never had a heat issue with odonnell. Plain and simple if you are worried about temps, don't run your engine lean. Most people can't really use all of the power thier engines make anyway(myself included). I never have power issues nor do I have heat issues. I generally run my engines between 220 and 235. That to me is an optimal tune, and produces plenty of power.

I have been running Byron's fuel for all 8 (going on 9) years that I have been in the hobby. It has always been very consistent and just a good all around fuel for me. I currently use Race 3000 30% in my truggy and Race 2000 20% in my bashing buggy.
