If you're new to nitro, stick with the regular O'Donnell race blend (or even the Ready to Run blend).

The OD Speed Blend is targeted at the more experienced / more hardcore racers who need the higher level of performance. The lubricant package in the regular race blend will give a bit better protection to your engine.

The bigger question is do you have to order all of your fuel, or is there a local shop where you can purchase it? Honestly, your best bet is to use a fuel that you can get locally. You won't have to deal with shipping costs, and if you need fuel quickly, you can just stop by the shop and get it.

Byrons 30% or Werks 30% are the best fuels you can buy.
