Default added castor to fuel, not good

My nitro only has 14% oil so I added Klotz to bring it up to 18% and now it runs like crap. hard to tune, wont idle, what a mistake. I read people claiming that there engine never ran better adding Klotz, wish that was me.

14% is a lot! 8-11% is what most are running....

18% is basher blends and you will be hardpressed getting any performance out of 18% oil fuel

I was wrong, I had problems with the carb. Cleaned it up and 18% is running great.
