I ran it for the first time this weekend and really liked the way it ran. I am looking at buying a case, but I am going to wait till I tear down the engines to see what the internals look like.

I've been running it for over a year now, and couldn't be happier.

For those that do not know, Punch Racing Fuel is Steve O'Donnell's fuel line (he has not been associated with O'Donnell racing fuel, other than his name on the bottle, for many years....that's all Hobbico).

The fuel is outstanding! Run time is similar to the other major brands, but the oil package is fantastic....as good, if not better than Werks. It's also very stable, consistent from bottle to bottle, and tunes great.

Here's a picture of my piston / rod after a gallon of Punch 30%....that amber coating will smear if wiped with a finger. The whole inside of my engine was coated in it. I've talked to Steve, and the oil package has been improved since this picture was taken. It's even better now.....

Default On my wish list as a possible back-up fuel

What is the oil percentage on the 25%?

thats good for o donnel.. shame other wise being that the reviews weren't too flash and those are from 2012..

other wise mmm interesting.. with what im running at the moment it hasnt coated my p & s all that much and left it clean.. other than the typical brown ish coating on a other wise shiney chromed crank at the rear.. which you dont see on DLC cranks.. we have Nitro X here and thats priced at 40/4L has maintained temps at a 89 - 97 and at most 110c.. if punch comes sydney side in the future ie.. i may order some here then awesome!...

the market here is building up here with brands like:

werks
nitrotane
Nitro x
morgans side winder
byron
Neo+
VP power master
MX maxima
RB
Nitrolux from modelix who have the ultimate novarossi line & oils etc...
they picked up kyle mcbride here to rep the fuel.. first 7 brands i know well of.. and first 3 plus Neo+ & VP powermaster is gaining momentum now with their new batch... mx isnt as much due to price.. helloooo anyone want to spend 800+ for a os speed thats been moded taking 3days todo.. apparently LOL (tangent a tiny bit of topic) :P

Almost through my gallon - huge fan, good stuff, just annoyingly hard to get in AZ. No one stocks it, so A main is my only choice.
