I am not a GRP fan myself. I never have liked them. IMO they are way too soft on the bottom. Besides they are out of business now.

I have run these engines for the past year and they are weak on the low end but great on mileage. Good luck finding one as they are defiantly out of business. Great little engines though.

Yep. IMO insurance fraud. They wanted the money. They even moved equipment out of the factory the week before it burned down.

I don't know what the deal is, but it certainly seemed off.

what brand 20 you use..i might hit some that up. 30 might just be a joke. if engines were free and alls a guy did was race for living might be worth it..on other hand maybe not...in the fall im likely gonna switch. appreciate letting in on the secret

I run Odonnell 20% race fuel. IMO it's the best.

That's the Oil package that Odonnell uses. It may stink, and stain your line and tanks, but it works.

thats what il switch to in fall. i aint been having issues with sidewinder, just the fact of longevity and milage. cant beat that considering its cheap. last gallon of sidwinder 30 i got was $24. so hopefully odo 20 will be under 20. thanks for the reminder. id known, just hadnt had the time to re tune everything etc

Not to get off topic but you'll be much happier with Cold Fusion Fuel!
Sorry to get off topic...proceed

last fall i looked at nitrotane kept hearing about it. i havnt had one issue with sidewinder 30. i do hear good changes from people who switch to nitrotane. im looking at $30 per galln for 30 for it. $5 more than sidwdr. i know a couple guys who sell the odo outta there truck basically, i think 30% is $27 and 20% not sure.

on this forum i hear more good stuff about coldfusion than any other fuel, kind of says somthing considering compliments are rare unless your rich(so it must be rich lol and that be a good thing). altogether i think im looking for a new fuel to run more smooth. this sidewinder rocks but honestly seems inconsistant and its not me, i see other sidewinder guys running similar. I might see what phils(lhs in ft wayne In, where i buy all my chit)can get fusion for and or odo 20%. which ever chaepst il go. i still got 3 gallons of sidewinder 30 so it might a few. now im mumbling outloud. sry dreaux
