Byron's Gen2 is good as well.

Byron Race or Pro Driver 2500 is very good. Works well for me here in LA and in Vegas.

I personally prefer Byrons Gen 2 . but I would like to try Maxy's fuel I haven't seen it at local hobby shops.

I know theres people who would never use anything else other than O'donell fuel. I personally hate O'donell fuels it stinks and leaves a nasty residue all over the car and pipe which is very hard to clean. My friend uses O'donell and I'm always showing him how Byrons leaves the internals of my engines cleaner and better lubricated than his... still he won't change fuels... Byron is cheaper too.

I have also heard from many people that O'donell fuel will prolong the engines life... I don't know if that's true. I only bought one gallon because that's all there was at the time. Never again...

If you can afford it, Tornado is the best fuel I have ever used hands down. Awesome power, ran cooler and a very steady idle. But it is expensive, so I now run Byrons Gen 2 and like it. I used to run O'donell and would agree with Gonzo RR, very messy. I've also ran Tornado a couple years ago and the only thing I didn't like was that it turned the insides of my motor red from the dye.

If you are looking for a good fuel that leaves your engine looking like clean and nice inside, try Losi Nitrotane.

+1 on the Byron's Gen 2. Tunes easily, consistent. Runs cool.

I think J Tech fuel has the best lubication and is the most consistent in quality.

Byrons/Mugen seiki Pro driver. After warm-up 254 deg after 1/2 main 254 deg. The most consistant stuff I've ever used.


Pass you soon...
