most of you guys have not heard of vp racing cause they are not in the rc car business per say... thay make fuel products for kart racing, moto racing, etc. but they have the materials to make nitro. i have bought methanol and nitro from them before to mix my own fuel. but it really did not come out to a cost savings, was just doing it to see if i could get more performance... afterwards, i figured a commercial brand was better due to the fact that they spend hours on end trying to develop the best mixture... fuel is pretty basic: methanol, nitro and a lubricant (usually some mixture of castor and synthetic, and there are pros and cons to every mixture). it would take a lot of time to test every mixture possible to find the best combination and even at that, you would always be testing under diffrent condtions--- outside temperature, car set up, gearing, etc. my .02.
