Let me just put it this way....

I Love it when I see my competitors using anything other than Byron's/Mugen fuel!

This past summer, in our 30 minute A mains, I won 4 in a row, 5 out of 8 races.

I've been using Rocket Science fuel for over a year now. It's been good for me.

I guess guys in US do not have the chance to try Tornado fuel... Perhaps if they did, then they would switch from Byron / Mugen fuel. I believe in Europe, Tornado / Crash fuels are widely used. Not that I'm against Byron fuels... I know that they are decent and protect your engine against rust but in terms of performance, Tornado tops out. I have also not had rust in my engines since I've switched to Tornado. I don't put any after run oil in my engines too. Just my 2 cents.

Do you love it when Barry Baker laps you about 10 times in the main running O'Donnell or laps you twice in a qualifier running it.

LOL...you guys are riot!!!! This is like asking "which car is the best", you'll get 1000 opinions (and we all know about opinions). Personally, I've been using O'Donnell for about 5 years now with no problems & awesome performance. I've tried Byron's and honestly didn't see much of a difference. I stuck with O'Donnell for a few simple reasons:

1- AWESOME performance
2- cheaper than Byron's
3- available almost everywhere that I run. Byron's is only carried in a couple of shops.

Default here is some info from" maxy's fuel"

AVAILABLE IN JANUARY
Maxy's Pro Racing Car Fuel - TEAM EDITION (changing mixture)

8% Oil (Synthetic & Castor)


For all the racers that think that racing is all about speed, they are going to release this new blend for our fuel, the Team Edition which will contain only 8% oil mixture. The actual Team Edition will be then Race Edition (old mixture - 12%), starting in January of 2004. With this new Team Edition blend:

Your car is going to have more run time with the fuel.

A Cooler engine, and more consistency.

Your engine will last longer than usual.

Default Did I mention I hate Mugen????

I won't put Mugen fuel in my Serpent! It is just wrong. I won't even use a Mugen starter box to start my Serpent.
