I don't usually like to endorse on here, but figured it might help someone out. CarFanatic, I know HobbyTown has OD SpeedBlend in stock, we got a bunch of it a month or two ago. I don't know if there is 30% or not as it isn't the fuel I run, but you may want to give a quick phone call if you're really needing some.

Again, I try to leave my racing half and my work half seperate, but figured since you were looking it might help you out.

Yeah, the fuel situation has been a bit funny of late (I bought the last of what we had of my fuel a few weeks ago... we had 2 quarts to last the rest of the season). I wish it were as simple as making a phone call and ordering it, but due to the shipment method, we generally just get 1-2 pallettes of fuel a year and we burned through a LOT of fuel this year.

Yeah, I agree. A lot of it has to do with how it's shipped, because it's a flammable fuel. If they put it in one of our standard restock orders, they have to send the entire order as hazardous and I think if you ship one or two boxes, they each ship as a hazardous/oversized container so shipping costs are through the roof. The pallet method keeps the shipping reasonable, but it limits how you can order it (it alsot takes a few more days than a standard order since it goes via freight vs. UPS, etc.). If we ordered a box or two, I believe we pay full cost of freight would would have to be baked in the the price of the fuel.

that makes sense.. You guys carry a lot of different fuels, seems like you could narrow it down and maybe bulk order like the most popular.

Speed Blend would not be on that short list.

It'd be Patriot 20%, Trinity Monster Horsepower 30%, and the rest airplane and heli fuel.

Will electric be in its own class? My battery will only last a good 10-13 minutes. If itís going to be longer than that, itís a lost cause for me and other electrics I would imagine
