Default Novarossi Break-in Fuel Recommendation Help Needed

I just got my Novarossi NS12 5 Port. The manual suggests the following type of fuel for breakin.

Castor Oil: 12% - 15%
Pure Methyl Alcohol: 80%
Nitromethane: 5%

My lhs could not find fuel to meet these specifications. Specificallt the nitromethayne percentage. Do any of you have any recommendations for a fuel that meets these specs?

Thank you,

Default Fuel

The fuel content you are looking for is about what airplanes use, but, we always break in engines with the same fuel we race with. You can buy Sig castor oil at an airplane hobby shop and add an ounce to a quart for breaking in a new engine.
