Default Which fuel?

On this page of Horizon Hobby im seeing 3 different Sidewinder fuels, they are all 30%, but what is the difference?

This will be used in .21 off-road racing engines

Not exactly sure about the Horizon Hobby page, but the different types of 30% fuels have different types of oil packages. All blends are very good. I am currently running pro blend, I like it a lot. Strike Team is really good to as a lot of guys are running it now.

The Sidewinder Race Blend has the most oil, Worlds is in the middle, Strike has the least oil. I have used the Worlds and currently use the Strike fuel and like Strike better.

get the red stuff, the worlds bend. the purple stuff sucks! i tried it for a few gallons and everytime i changed quarts, i would have to tune it a little. just got old fast so went back to byrons. but the Sidewinder Worlds Blend is some good stuff

Torco 30%, 10 % oil, 8% synthetic 2% castor. Best stuff I ever ran but am biast. Also cannot go wrong with Byrons, very good stuff and used it for years.

Hit me up Jeff, I am in Charlotte and can get you a gallon of Torco this week to try out if you want at N/C.
