I'd say 10% - 12% is the range you want to be in for onroad.

Do a search on that forum, this is a question that has been quite discussed and you'll find valuable information.

if you are to run a mix of castor and synthetic, go no lower than 10%. if you plan to run 100% castor, you CAN go down to 8%. Castor oil protects best at higher temperatures... so if it does start to get a little warm, your engine wont suffer as bad as it would if you ran with a mix of synthetic.

There are lots of good fuels, all depends on how much nitro you want to use and the country you are, sure shooters are various: O'Donnell, Maxys, Roga, RB, JP/RunnerTime/Spark (all three fuels made by the same: Passerini).

Good fuels are various, you only need to see what fits more on your pocket and which ones are available on your LHS.

I like to use 6% Supertechniplate (Klotz) and 2% Maxima 927 racing castor for oil, and VP Nitromethane and Methanol.

I think you will find that the difficulty will be obtaining the Nitro, as it is now a controlled substance in the US. (I hear the Oklahoma city bomber used nitromethane in his bomb recipe, now it is restricted for purchase. I was actually screened and had a background check the last time I purchased some!)

I have heard of some super-oil available from Motul (I think) that costs more than $100 per Liter (you know, the stuff that supposedly turns the fuel tank and everything black after use) This oil is supposedly making the best power and is used by Andrea Rossi for his race team as well as some other top teams, but I have yet to obtain and test some. If anybody has any leads on getting this oil in the US let me know and I will test it on the dyno.

There are some pretty handy programs available online to help with the mixing quantities if you are going to blend your own. You just need to do some Google searching.

I talked to Cyrul a while back when he was still running Sirio engines. He told me about the mysterie oil. It's actually made for aircraft and helicopter turbines and it has a dye in it that reacts with UV light. The dye is there to detect leaks in the oil lines and the turbines. When it gets in touch with sunlight it tuns black.

Gets a lot of attention, but it's a PR stunt.

The oil itself is supposed to be very good. They ran only 3% of it at the 2003 worlds in Cinncinnati.

Btw, up to 2004, when I still lived in the US, I simply ordered my nitro methane from World Wide Racing fuels. Also, if you have a drag strip in the area, chances are that there will be shops that have NM in stock.
