ive been running the speed 30% all last yr, racing only, no problems, ODonnell 97t turbo plug has been awesome. make sure you have a turbo head button if you use that one, i believe its a medium temp plug

i run a series race and one of the sponsors was ODonnell and won 6 qts on the door prizes, been using it ever since. i was using byrons raceblend did not notice any difference

The Speed blend is the newer formulation. It's 7.5% oil (castor / synthetic) mix, with relatively low viscosity. It's a really good fuel, but it's meant more for the hardcore racer, who's looking to get top performance out of the engine, at the expense of some longevity.

The race blend is the original formulation, and is also great fuel. It's what I ran before Speed Blend came out. It has more oil percentage, and will protect the engine better.

If you're a casual racer, and are more concerned about engine protection versus peak performance, I'd go with the RTR, or Race blend.

thanks for input guys. i think i should probably go with race blend. also the lrp .28 is stock ( no button head ) & calls for 25% but i run 30%. is that ok for engine?

Actually the speed blend fuel changed about 6 months ago, it's now 8% oil. I've been running it sense it came out, couldn't be happier with odonnell fuel.

As for the bearing puller, the one that they have works for .21-.28 , it may even work up to a .32
