if WD-40 works for short term, il use it since il probably run all year here in mexico. I might run aluminum tape around the cooling head in the winter since it gets in the low 40s here

The fuel I use says no after run oil required for typical use so check your fuel. Remember that when you put in after run oil it will displace some of the oil already on the parts. So next time you start up your engine it is essentially lubed by the after run oil until enough fuel goes through to wash off the after run oil and replace it with regular engine oil from the fuel. So make sure your after run oil is designed not only to prevent corrosion, but also to lube a running engine. this would make me shy away from anything that isn't intended for an engine. I doubt you would get a hard failure like a seizure, but definitely increased wear on the piston, etc..

What does typical use even mean.....talk about overly subjective wording. Typical use to me isn't typical use to my r/c racing neighbor, nor is typical use to me typical use to Joe the plumber.

i think typical use is bashing and easy racing. no extreme beating on your engine. i run trinity monster horsepower 20%. should i use no oil then?

Then they should word it like that. No need to hide behind language.

If the bottle doesn't say specifically to not do it, you should then run after run oil.

I will read the exact wording when I get home, but the general message was ARO not required unless it is going to sit unused for a long time.

Here's the exact wording and my attempt at posting a picture of the label:

"After run oil is not required for short-term storage when all remaining fuel inside the engine has been completely used"

I should think so with how much oil is in Traxxass fuel. You're already running twice as much oil through the engine as you should be.
