Default Bryon's Lube Booster

Where can I buy some of it? I run Bryons 30-11 and had a guy give me almost 2 gals of 30-9 and need to bump it up to 11%oil
TIA Joe

Any good castor oil will do the trick. Try Klotz Benol.

Just FYI, the fastest thing you can do is go to the local drug store/pharmacy and get some USP Grade castor oil.

It's super clean, burns clean, no issues and readily available. It's "degummed" and won't varnish (I've tried to set it on fire in a saucepan to see how hot it could go and not break down and run it myself for many years without issue) Humco is the brand I usually find.

A lot of fuel companies offer quarts as well. SIG, Morgan/Sidewinder, Klotz and others in the RC industry off it, sometimes just hard to find.

Also keep in mind when you bump the oil from 9 to 11 you'll be cutting the nitro around 3.3 points; so basically you'll have 27% nitro (roughly).

Thanks guys, I was wanting Bryons because of the detailed instructions of how much to add to get the right oil%, just can't find any around here of any brand, and not sure how much of the drug store stuff to add to a gal of 9% to get 11%, any ideals?
Thanks

I'll PM you the mix later tonight. You'll need a 1-oz/30cc measuring cup that is marked in CC's or ml.

If you can find the lube booster; that's great; if not you'll have the other info for reference.

Thanks "m", and unspoken I do run 30-9, but a friend just gave me almost 2 new gals of 30-11, and I can use the booster to bump the 9 to 11 and save me about $75........

Token, like I just said, I was given almost 2 gals of 30-11 for FREEand it will save me$75 that might not be much to you but that's like 3 hours to me, and in this day I can't see me throwing $75 away, but if anybody wants to buy the fuel for $25 they can have it

I think they are saying, run what you got free WITHOUT changing it ( adding oil).

Most will probably agree 9% is fine for our modern engines.



so I say +1 to token

Just wanting to try and make my engines last a little longer!
But OK, I really didn't want to monkey around with the mix anyway.
A guy at the track uses nitro scent in his fuel, smells good but looks like it's causing him some tuning problems when the air temps get over 85
