Wink any thoughts on MAXY's fuel?...

You guys know I used to run Trinity and wildcat fuels.....and switched to Sidewinder because it just tuned easier(and runs overall GREAT)....now a couple of guys(former BT,trinity,odonnell users) have tried the maxy's......and it runs better than anything they've used....esp in RB big blocks....Any comments on quality,engine life,etc?........NO Flaming either!!!(haven't I calmed down?.. ))

Maxy Fuel is the best, I have been running it for a few years now and will never change. Engine life is long I ran at least 5 gallons through an RB .12 running 30% the hole time. Engine runs cooler and faster then anything I have tried yet.

Harry, don't get jumpy. Didn't say anything (yet).

BTW, looking at the clock cycle, I think you've been too long on the R40. You should have already been switching camps at the moment going by your standards. Say which car is it gonna be now? Let me know. Promise I won't flame you.

my comments on maxy fuel,well its great when i need less work in engine maintenance and tuning!fuel save is nonsense,but it save up $ buying piston/sliv set or new engines coz its cleaner than d rest,power wise is just not more power,depends to you all to decide,for me the power just like what i need and never less than my X brand.
d break in fuel also works greatly..

If i stopped running the R40 tommorrow,It would be no contest.....I'd buy the 710.....My hobby shop supports the car(more than the r40)....I've seen the car run(its fast)...and I've driven it...I think the r40 has more steering(but I could work on that)......the 710 (under one drivers hands at our track) is a shade faster through the chicanes(something I'll work on the r40)....BUT,it is more fragile against the boards then the r40.... I think the r40 is easier to work on,and the plastic is better.....One BIG thing I like on the 710?....the ability to use ball diffs........I think that using gear diffs adds to the r40s sometimes inconsistant handling...esp. as outside temps are changing throughout the day......

I don't think many would agree with you there... Of course you're entitled to your own opinion.
