If you can get Traxxas Top Fuel, that's what I would use during break-in. If you have any trouble during break-in, you and Traxxas would be on the same "page of music". Once you have it broken-in and are comfortable with tuning, use fuel that is readily available to you.

I've always thought to break in your motor on what your going to race. You can switch fuel. Won't hurt the motor, you'll just have to re-tune.
