Found that I lost my tune when testing a different gallon and had to retune (same nitro percentage and everything). Don't know why, can't explain it at all, and it could have been anything. That's how things go.

Werks is great on-road fuel so is sidewinder granted it's a off-roaders preference. What ever you chose go 30%

Tornado fuel for me. Tried it. Awsome.
Engine over heated to 315 degrees and still runs. I love this stuff. Used to use others, but now...Tornado it is.

Runner time for me.
I find it is very consistent from 5 litre to 5 litre and holds a tune with lower temps and loads of power
