Default Dropping nitro percentage

hi all,

i`m currently running on blue thunder 25%.

if i were to switch brands and do a drop in percentage of nitro to 20%, will it harm my engine? i have heard from my LHS that, that shouldn`t be done at all, for it wil do my engine harm.

just take it easy the first 2 tanks, the motor needs to get used to the new fuel, but after, you'll be good

Going down in nitro will not hurt the engine. Just make sure the oil content is about the same.
