Default Which Nitro Fuel???

Hey i was just wondering which nitro fuel should I use with my new TRX 3.3 on my MAXX. So can you leave the name of your favourite Fuel and Nitro %.

Thanks!!!

I will tell you what I did and do, but will probally get a bunch of cr*p from people who have never done this. For break-in, a quart of Traxxas 10% or 20%. After the quart is gone, I run my cars and trucks on 30% Heli fuel (orange in color). It costs about the same as 30% Traxxas fuel, but with more oil. If you are just going to play ,20% should be fine. I also use the Heli fuel in all my airplane engines with no problems at all. Ok guys and gals let me have it on why this is no good or bad.

I like traxxas top fuel 20%, it has a little bit to much oil content but I have not had any problems.

I dont have a hobby shop near me, so I order Red Alert 20% from Tower Hobbies.

I've gone through a whole bunch of different types. All 20%. And to be honest, I don't notice ANY sort of difference between any of them.
