Fuel 25%, I don't think so. I say just start running the fuel that you like in 16% or 17% with 12% oil and start practicing with it.

I think they will have a better idea in about a month or so. This is a totally new track and asphalt surface, so the traction will change do to the surface being NEW and more cars running on it.

I will see if I can get some info for you.
