The nitro fuel cooler does lower temperature by 7-10 degree.

Also you can notice the fuel tank has less smoky hot fumes in the fuel tank.

The engine can go leaner than normal setting but maybe about 10%-20% max. ( 1 - 1.5 mins + )

I don't know for sure it will give you more than 10+ run time but it all depends on your engine configuration, engine condition, tuning, clutch setup, tires, track condition, layout, weather, fuel and driving style.

If all these mention working in your favour, it will go over 10+ mins or else it will not

I cool the fuel in my drag car and when i used to race karts. Drag racing is measured by hundreths of a second and thats all ill ever see from cool fuel, a few hundreths. It helped when i raced karts but after from start to finish the fuel would change temperature but i had the ability to tune my motor as the race went on. As the fuel warmed up, i would adjust for it. In an RC car, i dont think that the minimal performance advantage, if any at all will be noticed. I think it may be best to heat your fuel to operating temp before you race and it will allow you to keep a very consistent tune.
