He wants to run Pink Power 16% or 25% available from Elite Models in Mansfield. It is by far the best fuel in the UK.

for bashing 16% will do. but if your friend is racing i would go for 25% to maximize speed and punch of 5port nova engine.

i think it is best to use the same nitro content for break-in as you will be using after break-in

I second that of jason102276.
I have always used the same fuel
with the same Nitro Content when
breaking in a motor and when actually
running it.

Not if you're using 20%

If you use 30% you may have to goto a colder plug

If you use 30% you may have to add a shim .010
