Default Best fuel for Mammoth?

I currently use the Traxxas Top Fuel 20% in my Mammoth. It runs fine, but does anybody REALLY know of a fuel that will run it cooler? Don't say what you use just because you use it and have never tried something else.....I am talking about people w/ XTM 24.7 engine experience because I need to order more fuel and don't want to waste $100 on a case that sucks.

I was looking at the 20%N / 12%O Cool Power by Sidewinder. Any thoughts?

Thanks!!

Traxxas fuel does not go with xtm engines. I have asked xtm, they do not reccomend it at all as well as other high oil content fuels.
SCOB stands for synthetic/castor oil blend

Do not use the Eliminator or QuikFire plus versions!
