When you are choosing fuel be sure to check oil percentages...most of these motors like 16-18% oil...ESPECIALLY for break-in...

Odonnels is an awesome fuel for racing and stuff but it's kind of low in the oil department (like 12%)...but if you are looking more for optimum power more than engine longevity it's a great choice...

Good luck with the buggy....any questions feel free to ask![8D]

Get the oddonnells RTR 20 % not the racing mix. Has more oil content as Xeller said.
