Yes you can but make sure there is enough oil in it so you do not burn up your motor. I only say that due to the fact that you are asking a specific question that make me believe you are new to nitro. Race blend fuels have a smaller tuning window than RTR blended fuels.

Most buggy engines will run on 20% fuel. But it more depends on your experience in tuning and also what kind of performance you are looking for.

Byrons Gen 2 20% has 12% oil which is more than enough oil for any motor.
Yes you can use it on your motor or any other motor you run.
Too much oil can be a bad thing to you know

I use Byrons Gen 2 30% nitro with 11% oil and a Ninja JX .21 motor.
30% isn't necessary for racing though. 20% is perfectly fine, plus you get about 30 seconds more ruin time and slightly longer engine life.

Oh. cool. People say more nitro such as 30% means more power or something like that. Is that true? Im probably not going to use that because i would have to retune my motor to run 30% nitro.

I run os speed engines with coldfusion fuel. Magic blend 30% - 11% oil. Most 30% duels are in this range. Personally like the snap of 30% but it really does not matter it's all personal preference. I can say stick with a good quality fuel like I have found at cold fusion and you can't go wrong. 20-30% depends on your drving style. I. An say that I have 2 engines now that only have coldfusion fuel through them, one had 4 gallons and it still looks like new inside. No discoloring or staining of the metal and no buildup whatsoever. Just my personal experience.
