It is no secret that lower nitro content fuels get better fuel mileage. Why do you think all the Onroad guys are running 16% fuels now?

My engines make plenty of power. AND get better fuel mileage.

i think the speed is a great engine fershur , 500$ dollars great? hmmmmm that is a hard one i guess if i did all the dlc/silicone filled crank and all that good stuff to nova cranks it would cost me a little but 500$ , man i am not sure on the price point . i really want to get the dlc nova cranks done its not easy though!!!!
It aint a bargain engine. It is overpriced. But it's purdy and runs good.

LOL, I saw that, but assumed it was a typo the 9 button is next to the 0 button. I think he means 10 minutes.

Probably wanted to say 9 minutes and had a little typo there.

I know of some well known and respected "OMG MODDERS" that sell 40% fuel....

But yes 20% fuel will result in better run time at the cost of some power.

20%?????????????? What the? I hope thats a typo. You are missing out if you are not running 30.
ok i do realize this, but i also pointed out the bottom end was similar, idk if you cant understand what i was meaning, The ninja has a bit more top, similar bottom. the ninja is very smooth, i do not see any advantage that the speed can give. and good luck with that 19 min with 2 min to spare. can you share what your drinking?

No offense taken at all Houston. I was just cracking on you for hating to say "modder"

And yes the 40% was for guys at high elevation. But it can also be used for drag engines as well. I use 65% in my boats as run time isn't a factor but POWER is!! If you can make 6 laps in boat racing that is all that matters

LOL yeah that would. But if that were the case, I could probably get 20 minutes with 2 to spare on 20% fuel.

I live in the Mile High City. And race at tracks from 6000-7000 feet above sea level. There are a few ppl in town that use 40%. I didn't think it was anything great or needed. You can order it direct from Byrons

Awe come on if you can't pit at 25 min with that speed engine than something is wrong. I run a 1.3 restrictor and I get 25 min easy. Hahaha man that's good stuff. I want some of what this guy is smoking on...
