So when my bottle says 25%, what is that, Nitro content or Oil content? If it's Nitro content, can I run 40% in my Hpi .15FE engine without blowing it? If I can, can I get a bigger cooling Head for my motor to cool it better? I've seen one of those heads in my Hobby Store...

Oh yeah, WHO LIKES MY NEW BODY???

Team mugen went through 6 different fuel manufactuers and decided that byrons was the only one that had world wide distribution capabilitys so that anyone would be able to use the same fuel that is used by the team....


Not to say that every team driver uses this fuel, some have sponsorships from other well known fuel makers....


No team driver is forced to run mugen fuel....


If you notice in the 2001 wolrds the fuel was byrons not mugen
Granted they are the same fuel but at that time they're was no partnership yet....

Typicaly the 20% or 25% that is seen on the bottle is the nitro content.


also do not use 40% in you're .15 it wont last long...

so they went with distribution capabilities,rather than performance capabilities....OK..thank god wildcat is in Kentucky...


by the way,HPI,trinity,Cox,and a few other companys have chosen wildcat also.....

What you fail to understand is that I'am not bashing wildcat or any other fuel its just whats available in you're area....

Like in A.Z. if you try to buy wildcat fuel you can only get it in 20%
and it cost $27.00 dollars a gallon...

I could get O-donnel in 20% 30% and 40% for only $21.00 bucks
This does not mean that the O-donnel fuel is a lesser fuel than wildcat but that its easier to get here.....

Same with the Byrons

The trinity is what I run when I run off road.... But it has a different oil content than the regular wildcat fuel....

The other thing we look for is cooling...
A.Z. average temp in phoenix from april to october is 102 degrees during the day and only 89 degrees at night And the average humdity is 12% every day
So having a fuel with good oil is very important....

I too Have tryed many Differant Types Of Fuels And always Go Back To SIDEWINDER and its Hard to Beat the Price Of less then
20.00 a Gallon and Never Had an Engine Failure Like I have with other Fuels. My Head Temps Rarly Ever Run Over 220 Degrees Even On the Hotest Of Days In Florida.

http://www.morganfuel.com/modelfuel.htm



TEAM SIDEWINDER

Greg Degani, Travis Amezcua, Jimmy Babcock, Jeremy Kortz, Team Hardcore, Ofna on road, Yokomo, Team Crono, Marty Korn, Jeff Nidd, Gene "the machine" Hickerson, Jason Conley, Kevin Wilson, Mark Korn, Tim Cambell, Christoph Hanas, Mike Battiale, Pierre Pfeil...And I failed to mention a small group of racers somewhere in England!


EXPERIENCE

We know model fuels! We've produced Millions of gallons since we began in 1975. Sidewinder is the culmination of 27 years experience.

POWER

All Sidewinder fuels are dyno-engineered from the ground up to give you crisp transition and a ballistic top end. To make your engine start easier and run smoother Sidewinder contains MTEC combustion enhancer, which generates a more efficient burn. CP-07 reduces friction by as much as 85% causing less drag. This allows your engine to turn-up faster and higher.

PROTECTION

Our high thermal stability base stock fluid won't breakdown even under racing's severe conditions. Our CleanCastor™ oil helps to protect your engine with greater film strength and much higher load bearing capacity. Most driver experience 30-40 degrees cooler cylinder head temperatures... this means less wear & more life for your expensive motor!

PRICE

Like our fuels, our prices are MORE than competitive! Being the largest producer of model fuels in the world means greater buying power and lower raw product costs which we pass along to you! We put our customers first in more ways than one.


Synthetic Lubricant

We use a High Thermal Stability Synthetic Base Stock Fluid to handle the most severe service applications. Morgan Fuel's synthetic lubricant is highly stable even at sustained high temperatures and thus has very low deposit-forming tendencies to assure long engine life.
Our synthetic lubricants are also Extremely Viscous giving the protection of several percent more of a thinner lubricant. Morgan Fuel's Synthetic lubricant also has outstanding Lubricity and Plating capabilities, meaning the lubrication flows and coats the metal surfaces. Our proven advanced technology provides enhanced protection against wear, and high temperature oxidation. Do not use After-Run oil with our fuels, our Rust Preventer is like a built-in After-run oil.


CP-07

Our famous friction modifier reduces friction by as much as 85%. It attaches to metal surfaces by polarity and keeps them apart.


Methanol

Our High Power Methanol has a minimum purity 99.97% which exceeds the industry standard. Due to exceptional purity, your engines run cooler, and produce more power. Talk about fresh...Our Methanol producer is less than 90 miles from our plant. The Methanol we use today was being made less than a week ago.


Nitromethane

We use the same nitro used by the NHRA's TOP Top Fuel & Funny Car drivers. That's right, the same nitro used in the cars of Kenny Bernstien, Doug Kalitta and John Force is the same nitro used in all of our fuels. Our nitro assays on average at 99.7% pure Nitromethane (the other .3% are other nitroparrifins).
