These are European fuels and, as far as I know, not available in the US.
I don't think he will go through the trouble of importing a couple cans of fuel for just one race.
Daan, Dario Ballestris is on a picture with a can of Runnertime??? If he can finish first with it it must be good

Yeah I saw Lamberto Collari's comment on Red RC, and he was not too happy that Nova Rossi was blaming MLC fuel for the engine failures.

Regarding the Worlds from 2 years ago I can remember Collari was not happy with the used fuel because the bad lubrication. I believe Byrons was used?

I remember that story. But I do not think it could have been Byrons. Byrons was used extensively at the Winternats; you would have seen more than 10 cars with engine trouble including Paolo Morganti.
I remember a similar story like this one that was smeared all over RCtech involving Maxy fuels.


Pass you soon...

I just watched the 1/8 main race at the 2014 Winternats. Marco listed Runnertime fuel on his sponsor sheet. Time date 55.07.

Pass you soon...
