ok I see it. . . now what?!?!

Do you order yours from an online supplier or do you have a LHS get it so you can buy it in smaller quanities (not 4 gallons or more at a time)

I've been ignored by one hobbyshop over the whole fuel thing. What sucks for him is that I will never go back and neither will my friends. I'll have to see what the other LHS will do for me. The only fuel I have seen on the 2nd shop's shelves is Monster HP and some traxxas fuel(dont recall the name).

I have my hobby shop order the 4 gallons,and I split it with freinds.....

It all depends how much fuel you are going to use..,..

Also,I'm using the world Championship fuel,which is 30%...You probably don't need that.....(its a little harder on engine wear)...

I've tried the other sidewinder fuels,and they run great also....

and they are a little cheaper....

I have to agree with Fastharry on this. I used to run Trinity and I tried Sidewinder and it runs cooler, I had to retune my engine, coulnt figure out why it was so slugish.

I'm breaking my motor in on odonnel 20 percent race fuel. Motor runs very cool and it seems to ahve great throttle responce and seems to keep my motor lubed. I'm going to stick with this stuff.
