Default Sidewinder Team Strike 30% - I want to start using

I want to switch to the Team Strike 30% from Sidewinder, but of course there is no hobby shops that have it, and unless I buy 4 cases, they won't order it.

Where is the best place to mail order it? Is there someone on the forums who sells it?

Do yourself a BIG favor and try Cold Fusion Fuel instead. Get the 30% Majic Blend and you'll fall in love with the lower engine temps, the consistent idling and best of all no more flame-outs!! You can order it by the case at their website
http://www.coldfusionrcproducts.com

Give it a try...you'll never run another fuel in your engines!!

rcgeezer, he has a point. He already has chosen a fuel, no need o post about Cold Fusion. He is asking where to get his fuel not your fuel

i have been trying it in my plus-4 and its pretty good. Had to lean the top about 3-4 hours and the bottom around 2-3 hours to get it close due to lower oil percentage. Still running it a little rich, but has plenty of power and came off the track sat after 40 min main at 216 and a 3 lap victory. I am fixing to switch to the turbo button and see if that picks it up a little. havent opened the engine yet to see how clean it leaves it, but pretty sure its good. By the way the leaning of the needles was brought to my attention by Jesse Robbers at the AMS race were he was flying so i think he knows what he is talking about.
