im not sure about the diffrence in them fuels, but if your going to use 30% make sure you dont, go too lean because the tuning window is less than 20%and 25 % so just make sure your good at tuning.

which im not the best im still learning lol.

25%-30% for racing, yes the tuning window is a little bit smaller, but the low end torque will be much better as well as throttle response, and you can run a "slightly" richer setting and still have the power. Also higher nitro can get you better mileage as you do not need as much throttle to get the speed, power needed to clear jumps, accelerate ect. 20% for bashing and playing. I prefer to break in on 20% as it is a bit less stressful. With the correct tuning I have not noticed any difference in longevity between 20% to 30%.

Oh the difference between the two Byron fuels is oil content regular is 11% and pro driver is 9% I believe.

im been running 20 % and, have a rich tune and get about 9 min with a carb insert of course. i do race with 20 % by the way since i replaced my clutch shoes i think, i should have plently of torque to clear a big jump.

im using ebmods 20%, RACE formula it doesnt have a whole lot of oil its about 10 %.

Yup!

I run Byrons... but would switch to OD in a heartbeat if it were more readily available.

I highly recommend adding 1oz of castor to Byrons Gen2. Your motor will last considerably longer.

And here come the flames. I'm sure many people will disagree with me on this one but believe me, it makes a difference and I am FAR from alone on this.
