Picked some up from Scott. Tried it out today in Vegas. Very crisp off the corners, and the temps were only 220-230 degrees. Alot of people I see are coming off around 250-260 degrees. Temps at the track are around 100 degrees. I have to say the car feels like it has much more get up and go for sure. Thanks guys.

Chavo and Tornado, ya'll did it again!
I ran on road and was loving life, again! My .12 was at 198 and was stupid fast! I never had 1/3 tank left after running a 5 min qual with my 720! I still can't get over the fact that 25% is making more power that 30%?!

Hey Ghettoteacher, we ran 16% for our .12 and 25% for the .21 in Asia. You should try it. It is sick man. You will love it. Don't you love the Tornado life??

hkboy, I did not touch the needles of my engine after letting CWhit retune the motor. It has been over a month since I had it tuned. It fired right up. I have been focusing on off road this year, but after seeing and hearing the tone and efficiency of this fuel, I might swing back to on road. Coincidentally, I run Tornado in my Truggy and the outcome is the exactly the same. I just wished Chavo would have dumped some Tornado in my Serpents at the test and tune in March. I would have been hooked earlier!

Hey Ghettoteacher, I am glad you like the fuel. We all use Tornado here in Asia and we love it. There are many importers bringing other fuels in, but we just stick with Tornado. A friend of mine was trying to use other fuel the other day, but he came back to Tornado in just 1 run. He said the other fuel just does not give him what he has before with his engine.
I was talking to Rick V from Netherland on line the other day and he said he was using other fuel at the WinterNAT in 2007, and he has problem turning his engines, at the end, your US distributor gave him a tin of Tornado fuel and he ended up taking second over all. I guess your experience will say the same.
All I can say is the next time I visit North America, I can pick up some Tornado and have some fun

Just wanted to thank you guys again for the great fuel. Broke down the engine and everything looks great. No rust or oxidation anywhere. Even made run time which is a issue for me. Very heavy trigger finger. Thanks again guys.
