Whatever you go ahead and use it. All of my 3 LHS's have dropped their shipments. Stick to quality fuels like Byrons, Trinity, Sidewinder and ODonnells.

Blue thunder race formula is fine. Its a little heavy on oil compared to some other brands but its alot better then traxxas fuel.

The race blend is not that heavy on oil it is their sports blend that is and yes Traxxas is way heavy on oil. I am running Sidewinder Worlds after running O’Donnell Race and not real happy with it. I wish O’Donnell was easier to get here as well as they are about to price them self out of the business as far as I am concerted. [:@]

Discoloration because of fuel dye won't hurt your engine. Discoloration due to detonation WILL though:P

is the Blue Thunder Race stuff actually blue, chris? I haven't used or seen it...I just assumed that since the old school blue thunder was blue the new stuff was too
