Default !!!Whats he best on road FUEL!!!

I like the way byrons gen2 runs but had bearing failures and corrosion problems in 08. Never had those problems before gen2 came out.
So please give your opinion of what is the best- Rocket science, Tornado, Odonnel, Trinity, White lightening?

P.S. I think I would like to try rocket science.

Maxy's Fuel is always good.

Yes, I agree with DJ, Maxy have been producing good fuel, tune stays consistent from gallon to gallon.

Are those the fuels that you have easy access too?

I like the Gen 2. I also had VERY GOOD results with White Lightning though you absolutely must run the engine dry and fill with after run. The castor in it really makes a mess if you don't. I have heard nothing but good things about Maxy and may be trying it out next year.

I've had good performance with Byron's Gen II. I would like to try Maxi's but no local distributor in the northeast Ohio area. I want to also try the Byron's Pro-Driver fuel I believe it has a little less oil content.

Try Maxy's, you wont regret it... I'd just advise to stay away from Sidewinder... Have seen too many problems with it.

I have had most excellent results with Gen 2, some of the best running most consistent fuel I've used and I have tried most of em. I dont have the bearing problems you seem to be experiencing, of course I religously run my fuel out and purge the engine with after run when I'm done for the day.

Kind of like brands of milk, you may get different brands just make sure it's fresh! That's why Maxy's is one of the best out there because it's always fresh. When you get a chance to give it a try, notice the climb in RPM also and you will be very satisfied .

Thank you guys for the kind words we have worked trough the years to be able to give the RC drivers a quality fuel with the best performance and run time possible with the ability to keep the engines clean and good so you spend more time running and less time rebuilding.

lil-bump send us an e mail at [email protected] or visit us online at www.maxysfuel.com and we'll figure a way to make the fuel come to you.

We'd like to hear your comments about the fuel as soon as you make the switch we think you're going to like it but we also like the feed back from our customers that's what is keeping us getting better and better

We would like to invite you to give Maxy's Fuel a try we have two consecutive national championships (2007-2008) to prove the performance and we have the best run time in the market with timed runs of over 5 minutes on a 1/10 scale sedan.

Again thanks for the kind words of the Maxy's Fuel supporters, we really appreciate it and look forward to keep you happy.

Default fuel

I'm a proud user of Maxy fuel also! I switched at the winternats this year and I have been happy every since! I was using the new gen 2 byron fuel and having some tuning issues when maxy himself let me try out the fuel while helping me tune a motor. I saw and felt the changes immediately,it was so hard to believe how instantly I saw the difference, I almost gave maxy a hard time. LOL

I have had some problems with some specific Novarossi piston and sleeve matches and they tried to blame my fuel as the problem. I disagreed with them 100% telling them i've seen this manufactures problem and it wasn't the fuel. They had different things to say.

I've been a long time user of Byron's fuel from yellow to orange.
