Some guys on torco thread said they lost pressure line during a race and did not affect engine performance at all.Torco must be the best so i will try it.

lol..I've lost the pressure line before also and had no problems finishing the race. Motor must create enough vacuum to pull fuel through anyways. Maybe it's the Sidewinder fuel..

im running XP Fuel (www.xpfuel.com) 33% nitro 12% oil.

here in my town all the fuel is the same price if i run 20% or i run 33%.. so i'll get the 33.. its nice, burns cleans..

i agree about the plug thing.. doesnt matter the %age of the fuel if the plug isnt right for the engine its gonna run like shit..

im on my 2nd gallon of fuel in 3 years. i dont run my savage 25 too much. going over to a friends house tomorrow morning and we're running our trucks, hopefully i can get my STS .28 finally broken in..

Byrons Pro driver 30%. I tried maxy, and the stuff is GARBAGE. after not being able to get the motors to run after 1/2 gallon, put byrons back in and both motors race perfect. Never switching again.

Sometimes you just get a bad gallon of fuel. It happens to every company. I hate switching fuel the engine always runs a lite different. Find a brand that you like and stick with it.

Default Byrons gen2

I've been using power master for years, and it is good, but I am going to start using the Byrons 20-12 gen2. I like extra oil im my fuel, it just makes sense. I would avoid 9 percent oil fuels as you will have more problems. I would like 25-12 but I don't know if they make it. Peace....

I went from using Blue Thunder to O'Donnell to Torco (all 30%) on my V-Spec for my truggy & buggy. I wasn't happy with Blue Thunder (chasing tune, seemed variable quality between gallons, YMMV) and went to O'Donnell which solved the consistency issue. Performance seemed the same between them. I switched to Torco midway through the summer to test it out and have noticed it runs much cooler with a sharper "snap" performance-wise which lets me run leaner and my run time went up significantly (pulling 14mins easy on the truggy). So far I've been very happy with Torco.

The only thing I don't like about Torco is the amount of dye they use which turns everything red. I've heard they've changed the formula recently to reduce the dye amount but I haven't picked up a new gallon since then.

Sidewinder 20% I went to 20% from 30% due to cost just about half the price for a gallon. I can not tell the difference between the two in power. My OS V spec is just as fast and the 20% has more lubrication so the engine should last longer.

I run O'Donnell 30%. I have tried O'Donnell, Sidewinder, Blue Thunder, and XP. My favorite is O'Donnell but Sidewinder was awesome to. I would like to try Byron's but it's not readily available in my area. But O'Donnell does everything I could ask for.
