In the Hot California Summer you could get away with 10% Nitro Fuel, but I really think that you will happier with the performance and idle characteristics of a good 20%.

Since Traxxas Engines tend to run on the Hot side, I recommend a Fuel with 20% Nitro and a Minimum of 12% to 14% Oil blend.

I don't think you would like the performance of anything less than 20% in a t-maxx. In fact the only place 10% fuel is powerful enough is in a plane.

im running 20% nitro in my nitro evader st and i think i dont have enough... In a T-maxx i couldnt imagine any less. go with the 20, but make sure you have enough oil content. I used Odonnel 20% racing fuel and it worked very well and kept engine temps way down.
