30% fuel can wear out an engine a little quicker,I agree...

but in every race I go to,thats what they run(most guys in teh roar events I enter run 40%!!!!!).....And I notice the difference running 20%....

That being said,My motor is shimmed correctly.I always warm the engine up before hard running(and very few people do that,which in my opinion puts more wear on the engine)....AND,I always run the engine dry(since the additional nitro left in the engine can add to the corrosion factor)...and I always use Afterburn JR. after run oil....

Contains ingredients that EAT nitro residue.....

So if you want to run on 20%,thats your choice.....I'm gonna run what works for me....

you won't believe how well that engine runs.......

I am WAY off the OS bandwagon..(never thought I'd say that

Fastharry, is the Sidewinder World Championship 30% fuel rebranded and sold under another name. I'm using the HPI fuel on my v12 non turbo and I'm having problems flaming out. I haven't been able to find wildcat fuels anywhere in the Southern Cal area.

I don't think so.....But I'll call Morgan and find out for you....

I used to LOVE wildcat fuel......

But I could not get an RB to run on that fuel no matter what i did...

I have NO tuning problems since switching to sidewinder....

I guess I should read a bit more carefully. I thought sidewinder and wildcat were the same, but reading back, I see they are different. I go to Elite Hobbies all the time. I'll ask Ian for it.
