Well the nitro should give you some more speed, but I doubt the Klotz will...

There are some fuel manufacturers that have "competition" fuel that is supposed to give you more power. They use oils in those fuels with a lower viscosity... that way there's less friction, so more power to the crankshaft...

The downside to this is that your engine basically wears out faster... a LOT faster if you run it lean...

You want more power for sport flying?... Get a bigger engine... it's cheaper in the long run...
