i recently made a switch from blue thunder 20% to trinity monster hp 25% and its excellent, at first it wasn't running right on its first tank, so then i riched the low end and it took off, same oil content as o'donnell but more nitro %.

I tried power master 30 this weekend, i ran all day and temps were within 10 degrees F, not only is it consistent, when i opened up the engine to check for wear and discoloring, the piston was still shiny and everything still looked new!! I was running maxy and rocket science 30 before but this will be my new fuel

I tried some Fantom 30% and it seemed to run a bit better than Sidewinder, but I only ran a quort. I haven't had any problems with Sidewinder though.

If it's good enough for Ralph Burch, I'd say it's good fuel. I know Fantom uses an extremely high grade of oil in there mixture, not just regular caster oil like a lot of the brands.

for arguement sake, can you let us know which brands contain the "regular caster oil"?

Heck, yeah, if it's the same amount of money, I'd rather go for the best one.
