    I didn't say I build drag engines or have 40 years experience in the same. Once again you make up stuff to suit your own agenda, which is a common theme with you.

    I've always run 30% and never had fuel related problems so I stick with it. Some have tried less than 20% to save money and I think that's where the problem is.

    Well I suppose cost is a factor as I can get twice as much fuel for the cost of pre mixed, but I don't base percentages on cost. Plus I can experiment a bit and if I find it isn't right, I can remix...

    Pre mixed is $60 AUD - $42.40 USD.

    I mix my own which costs around half of the pre mixed. $29 AUD - $20.50 USD.

    In most engines these days, there is no need to run castor, but if you want to, there's no problem apart from the staining of the engine. It's a personal choice.

    Cool Power will also keep your engine cleaner. Castor will stain which is hard to get completely off and will gum the engine if left sitting for too long.

    I'm a bit surprised with that weight. My Tru Turn FAI 3.25" with lightened back plate is 63 grams.

    I thought that was too heavy, so I now use Marquette carbon spinners which are 38 grams.

    They look good and being titanium weight isn't a issue. Can't see why Hysol wouldn't work either.

    Only one way to find out. Then you can report back on them:D
