Home mixed.

0 – 5 % nitromethan (it depends of the engine)
15 – 16 % AeroSynth3 oil (more oil when I use 0 % nitromethan due to the lower fuel flow through the engine).
The rest is of course methanol.


Cheers

Byron's race Gen2

20/12 for club racing
30/11 for bigger events, but usually 20/12 because it's just sooooo good

Got to be safer than a meth lab. At least once you mix the Nitro and Methanol it stabilizes. Flammable but stable.

I've tried Byrons, O'donnell and I think Sidewinder 30% Championship blend is the best. Motors run fast,cool and clean plus they don't corrode or gum up!

One of our local AE guys gave me a quart of Byrons 30 one club race when the LHS didnt plan to stock Nitrotane for a big club race. Since that day all I will run for the for seealbe future (If I can get it from my RCTECH spy) is the Byrons Gen 2 30-9.
It runs cooler and seens to hold tunes better....

I was a big Sidewinder fan but switched to Odonnell 30% and am very pleased with it. The only real difference I can tell is that the Od is more crisp on the bottom. I am interested in the new Sw blend that is being tested though, I would like to see what is improved.

+1 on coldfusion magic blend 30% 11%. This stuff rocks. I have an engine that only has had coldfusion magic blend run through it. I replaced the bearings at about 5.5 gal and it looked brand new inside. There was the usual burn marking on the top of the piston but the crane looked brand new and the internal case p/s/r had no discoloration and all looked perfect. I like this fuel very dependable and consistent.

+100 on Cold Fusion, the best part to me is it is made when ordered and not sitting on a shelf waiting to be bought. Which really helps with the crisp tune it holds all day even when outside temp changes thru out the day.
