    I'd recommend %20-%25 fuel for your engine as well.

    Hi srt4, i would run 20% fuel, 30% will wear out the engine fast. I would say nitro engines should run on average 250, + or - 20 degrees. A little richer is better though.
    good luck!!

    RE: hello im new

    I RUN ABOUT 15% IN MY CAR AND IT DOES GREAT........I READ THAT 20 AND 30% IS WAY TO RICH FOR THE CARS AND THEY SAID THAT THE NITRO AIRPLANES USE 20% AND UP...SO USE ANYWHERE FROM 20% TO 10% DEPENDING HOW UR CAR IS SET TO RUN...




    GOOD LUCK WITH UR CAR AND WHATEVER ELSE U DO
