oh god, now ive heard it all... wildcat uses the HIGHEST quality nitromethane available. maybe because they use the ONLY nitromethane available...

all the nitromethane in north america comes from the same place. PERIOD. the only changes made to fuel is lubricant and color.

as for choices there, i like o'donnell(BK is pretty similar) for everything i run. 1/8 offroad and 1/10 sedan. If i raced 1/8 onroad i would probably run mugen or byron.

if i just bashed around my yard i would run blue thunder.

i would never ever run anything wildcat. and i know a lot of people who feel the same way. that stuff is just garbage. the trinity blends are a little better.

just my $.02

ive pretty much tried every fuel brand and I keep going back
to odonell or mugen just because i'm used to tuning with
these two fuels.

the trinity blends ARE mixed by wildcat.....the monster HP has 2% LESS oil then Wildcat eliminator.....


shows what an expert you are...(or how a rival fuel company employee can post such a idiotic post)..

i have only good things to say about trinity fuel worked great for 2 years

just trying something different

trinity was a little expensive and every so often it would make itself scarse around here

but i always liked it no problems no residue great fuel really

I use odonnel. It is easy to tune, makes pretty good power and it smells like bananas...until you catch a wiff of the exhaust fumes, which smell like the bitterest death.

I'll probably use Mugen fuel in my next engine (I try to use only one fuel in my engine for its life...easier to tune and all), because Mugen does seem fast and relatively easy to tune...I just know that Dynamite Blue Thunder was horrible stuff. It had less power, higher temps and was harder to tune and the oil made plenty of deposits throughout the engine. Mucked up glow plugs faster than I thought reasonable so I switched.

why nobody use Tornado fuel here? In asia especially in HK, Malaysia, Brunei, SG, tornado 25% seems to be the popular choice for racing...more power and its runs cool.

check this out --> http://www.tornado-products.com/

Default VP fuel

Its called E-RC fuel
Using VP Products and Klotz
Vp Nitro Methane and Methanol
You can Buy it at www.eliminator-rc.com

Its always Fresh and as you know there is no fuel in the methanol world like fresh fuel /

I herd Bryons, Wildcat and Hpi/Morgan use the same stuff as well.

I'm not getting into any debate here!! I run O'donnel 30%.
Has anybody tried TQ or Tornado? I've been to four races this year and see the orange stuff but nobody says anything ? I hear that Tornado is only sold in liters and is expensive. I don't know.
