Use whatever nitro percentage that you would be running normally.
I break in and run my motors on Werks 30%

I run Nitro Juice 30% in all my motors. I have used a lot of the others and it is a bit cheaper then alot of the other stuff out on the market. Depending where you live you might not be able to find it yet

+1 on the Nitro Juice. Unfortunately where it is available is still fairly limited, but it runs just as well as any of the bigger brands for a bit cheaper. Nitro juice is like $25 a gallon at my LHS, whereas Bryon's is around $38. No contest there.

Best fuel by a mile is Cold Fusion Fuel. Hold a great tune all day no flameouts and engines will idle forever. They even have a special quart just for breakin that has extra lubrication, then you can switch to the Majik 30 % and never have any problems, specially great for new engines because after gallon after gallon it will not dye your internals they will look as good as new after several gallons. Pm me and I can give you the info on the fuel and whom to contact

+1 on the cold fusion. I have not had any flameouts since I have been running cold fusion fuel. I mean NO FLAMEOUTS. I cant say that for any other fuel. I started with coldfusion about 2-3 months ago and I race 2-3x per month. I have been through about 5 gallons of this fuel and I wont let any other fuel touch my engines. Coldfusion fuel 30% magic blend has the magic stuff in it for the winning combo. Just my experience and opinion. Call vernon or Ron (352-342-4400) and get some running through your engine. coldfusionfuel.com

The color comes from the oil they use. NO Additives
