We don't have a off season here. Rain is our only issue.

Come up here to Toronto where it was -42 F with the wind chill. That is the coldest I remember ever experiencing and don't want to ever again. I am a shorts and flip flops guy myself. LOL!

I have a question on the Bones Brew. I am getting ready to break in a new engine. I noticed you have the reg 30% Racing fuel and then Engine Break-in fuel. What is they difference and should I use both?

Thanks,

Kevin

Kevin the Bones break in fuel is formulated to help aid in the break in process. Use a full quart of that then switch over to the race fuel for a tank or two rich on the track and you should be ready to start the slow race tuning.

Kev1966 - As dynamiteracer said above, the break in fuel is used to seat everything up aid in the break in of an engine and then you would want to switch to the race fuel. If you have any further questions let me know.

Default awesome

Glad to see Bones Brew is popular. It really is the best fuel I have used in over 20 years of nitro buggy running. I wont use anything else

I just received the case I ordered, with fast shipping to California I might add, and ran the fuel for the first time. Love this stuff...I'm sold.

8% or 10% oil? i have a werks b6 pro, reds te2,(that needs break in) and a few rtr engines i run, club level racing this year so im looking to stretch the life of my engines, i dont put kill tunes on, but i do try to lean enough for that pop for short run ups... does that extra 2% make tuning a bit more tricky? ive had bad luck with odonnell regular 25% and switched to byrons 30% which cured issues, i finally ran out and want to try something else.. was gonna pull the trigger on bones last year but i didnt know where i was going to race, got my season figured out somewhat so im ready to stock up..

The Wrench - Club racing and trying to stretch the engine life the 30% with 10% oil is what I'd recommend. The 10% is still easy to tune, a little less performance than the 8%, but gives more protection and engine life.

Default alu spout

attaching a spout directly to qt bottle is good idea. one of the fuel combo includes an alu spout. is that custom fit or any spout of fuel bottle fits? from the pic it looks the same as the OFNA fuel bottle spout.

Cap looks bigger than the Ofna one. I have the Ofna bottle and it is small.

pword - I'm not sure if any other fuel bottle ends will fit, as I had these custom made to fit the our quart bottle. I wanted them anodized red, but all of the alum stuff they do is orange, so orange it is now.
