Default New to big scales quick question

I finally ran mine over the weekend and it ran awesome until the steering servo locked up, I mixed the Klotz oil 8 oz to a gal. is this good or should i only use 5-6 oz to a gal.

I mix mine 25:1, and that is 5oz. 8oz of oil is going to be a very rich mixture I would think. Probably dont hurt to run that much though because I have seen people say more oil is always better than not enough.

the klotz super techniplate is the best oil you can buy it specially designed for rc engines too i run it at 5oz/150ml to 5 litres of fuel and the engine sounds real nice plus it smells nice

I guess 5 oz to a gallon is what I will try after I use the gallon of the 8 oz I already have then.

Buy yourself a ratio cup at any local motorcycle shop. It gives you all the ratios you need to mix the oil/gas mixture. You can pick from many different mixtures. I use 32 to 1 for all my stuff. The ratio cup lets you mix perfectly every time and worth the 5 bucks for it.
