Default Top 5 best FUELS!

Best brand nitro fuel and why? I've just recently started to run brand X. Ran VP before and instantly I felt like X was better, prob is X is hard to get. So now I'm searching for something else!!

I mix my own. It has in it what I want in it and how much of what I want. By far the best fuel I've used bar none.

Tornado? Hmmmm.....

I did quit using that garbage over 20 years ago. Rust in engines, different batches giving different tuning on engines (did cost me the 1/16 final at the 2007 worlds) and many more issues....

But the brand does not exist anymore.

So I must have used an old lot at the time I used it at 20% 5L and found it impressive the firing the engine had on the Tornado totally different from the SideWinder.
The engine looked totally like the devil inside.
In terms of time with Tornado the fuel ran out faster.
I currently use SideWinder 20% nitro and 12% oil.
I Like is good SideWinder? Roelof?

Labema ( best runtime and smoothest engine you`ll ever get, long lasting engines aloso)!!!!!

Byrons xx/11% oil. 9% and worlds blend ( i think it is 8% oil) makes you use up your engines faster. Gives you a hard hitting and wild engine from bottom end.
Racing experiencefuel is also good.

This is my experience. If you google Lambema, they also have some torquefigueres from dynotesting. The developer of the fuel uses the Laurus engines dyno amsongst others in his work.

It also depends if your running track or buggy engines. I have no clue what s best in track engines.

I always liked it the most when I used to buy the fuel ready (only mixing my own now), it had some great protection.

Sounds interesting with something new from them, I do hope they keep using high castor content.

Had best luck with Byron and Werks.

I've tried them all and received all of em for free at some point. Werks and Byron are the only 2 I'd pay my own $$$ to buy. Several you couldn't pay me enough to run b/c they're so bad.

Byrons and Bones Brew are the best fuels because they both maximize performance and also engine longevity. I have ran both fuels and my engines always ran consistently, internals looked great, and when I inspected the engine after long track days all the internals had a really nice coating of oil.

All i can get is sidewinder, odonell and flashpoint.
Prefer the flashpoint and its also the cheapest but otherwise i couldnt really care. I run 6-10 gallons in the summer and replace or rebuild my motors after the season. I belive the odonell to be hard on bearings but cant back anything up with data
