Default What fuel is everyone running??

My LHS mainly stocks VP Pro fuel, Ive reading a lot of mixed reviews on VP.

Im getting back into nitro and have always run Byrons. Seems they have a lot of different blends. Race 2000/3000/worlds?

Thoughts on cool power? Ive always run that in my helis but have no exp with their car fuels.

Thanks!

Also, anyone have experience with VP POWERMASTER GOLDEN BREAK-IN fuel?

16% nitro 14% lubricant.

Was thinking about using for a new motor I need to break in.

You will be amazed what you can find with some small efford on this link:

There are many topics to find on the choice of fuel and VP fuel.

I break-in the old school way using custom blended fuels. 10% nitro 14% oil (70% castor 30% synthetic) for the first quart only. Then I drop the oil content each quart after until I get to 11% oil (60/40 or 50/50 castor/synthetic blend depending on my mood) and end up at 20% nitro. The biggest issue I find with commercial fuels is they donít have enough castor in them. I would be buying some 8-9% oil commercial fuel and spike it with castor oil to bring the content up to 11-12% total oil for post-break-in/regular running.
