Default Novarossi Plus 12+3ct (Nitro % recommendation)

I have always ran 30% nitro but this new engine gives a manufacturer recommendation of 16% nitro. Should I run 20% in this engine? I am going to be racing @ my local track on the weekends. I really want to run 30% just because I have so much of it left. Should I run a head shim with the 30%?

The engine comes with a .3mm shim I found out. Anyone know where I can get a .1mm shim for that engine? I have looked everywhere...
