Nitro Tane fuel
I am going to do my job and inform people of a newer fuel. I was asked a few months ago to give the Nitro Tane fuel a try. When I started racing Nitro (off road) about 8 years ago I always used O'Donnell fuel. I had known Steve O for a long time so it was an easy thing for me. I never flew to any offroad races so I always took the fuel with me. Not only that, the offroad racers are much less picky about the fuel. I had never heard of many of the types of fuel out there. Then about 3 years ago I switched over to nitro on road. Holy moly. There are so many types of fuel I had never known about. Not only that, I fly to races now. I was still using O'Donnell. Then Steve sold the company and I could no longer get fuel shipped to races. I never realized how important it was to have a consistant supply of fuel. I tried another brand that was very popular and widely distributed and I just didn't like the stuff. I resigned myself to running one brand when I drove to a race and a different brand when I flew. I finally found a solution. Nitro-Tane. I made no commitments until after I tried the stuff. It runs great. Temps and power are just fine and the best part is that it is distributed by Horizon. That means that it is available to pretty much any hobby shop across the country. I am not going to come on here and give the same BS story eveyone tells. You know the one. "My engine makes more power, gets 26 mins of runtime and now runs at 190 degrees." I will say this. My engines ran just fine, no runtime issues, no temp issues and no other issues. The fuel is manufactured by VP fuels. They are very well known in real car racing. A top notch outfit. I can't tell you about the lube as they keep it a big secret but I can tell you there is a good film of oil left in the engine. Give it a try when you have a chance.
