Default poor ole cajun

i been using BT 20% for like 1 1/2 years+. And im finialy hearing this bad crap about the fuel. After my OS engine was shot, it did discolor the internals to a blue/green color(i learn this from taking it apart). I am switching to sidewinder 20% in about 2 weeks. My sts wont know what hit it

I have seen and I kid you not BT breakin fuel coat the piston so bad on a break in stand that the piston has to be lapped to make it run right. The fuel is ok its the dye in it that causes problems.

Once again Larrys. The carpet store. Mugen fuel is the same fuel.

popsracer: Don't get me wrong, I saw your humor in there.

As for your suggestion of trying a quart of another brand...I'll do that. Since I haven't run my Reflex and O.S. .12TR at all yet, I'll try the two different fuels in my buggy and see what I find.

Again though, I have taken apart my OFNA .15 engine many times and have yet to see any discoloration from the fuel. This was with their regular blend, not the Race Blend, though. So perhapes the problems are coming from their Race blend fuel...hmmm

I actually wanted to try the Trinity fuel for racing, but none of the shops around here carry it, and I really didn't want to buy four gallons at once just to mail order it.

Dark:

We use Byron's or Mugen fuel (like Dennis says, they're the same)

Let me know if you need some, I have a contact that can get you a gallon for WAY under $20.

BTW: Good to have you in the gas club now!!!!!
