I recomend Maxy's 25% if you can get it.
We use Powermaster Formula 16 Car Fuel with 30% Nitro.

If using 25% you will need to remove a .10 mm shim
If using 30% then you don't have to touch the engine, just run it the way it is. I suggest running 30% which it is already shimmed for.

My red dot and 2607 pipe is hard to control, even under part throttle.
I remember someone saying these little rockets like higher gearing, so I am thinking of going to an 18 and 60/59 first gear and 23/55 or something and loosening off the clutch some to try and tame it a little. What gearing are others running with these?

18/61 = 1st gear, 22/55 = 2nd gear

I'm running 17/61, 23/56 w/ Serpent 720. I race at 301 Raceway. This engine is a rocket. I thought about going up a tooth on the 1st gear pinion.

For a 720 (it really depends on the race track you are running at)

Thumbs up

I have been VERY impressed with the relatively new Byrons Gen2. It seemed to run a little cooler and still had a little more power.(my.02) At engine tear-down, it had that nice coating of "honey" on all internals. I might be a little biased as I have benn using Byrons exclusively for the jast few years or more.

I am also very impressed with the Gen 2 blends from Byrons. Great power, stabile temps, and the engines internal components look like they hadn't been ran. Super clean.

In my JLR I run the Byrons Gen 2 30% Pro Driver without changing the deck heighth, and it's a rocket at 230ish (was in my CRT.5, but now it's going into the Hyper ST Mini)...You guys think these things are fast for on-road, you should see them in the 1/12 scale mini truggies.

I have to agree with these guys. It runs cooler and makes more power than previous Byron's blend.

I'm looking for a new pipe for my red dot because my 2607 is pretty beat up. I can't find a P1-7355 in stock anywhere right now so I am wondering if someone knows if the P1-7356 or the P1-7351 is the same except for not being polished?

i have this one that i got from ebay on my NT1.

the 7356 is exactly the same as 7355 but black and cheaper.

the 2617 (idm) is also a good match.


i'm not sure about the P1-7351... to me it looks the same but without the conical manifold/header.
