Default RE: what brand nitro fuel?

As has been said, in nitro engines too much oil will raise, not lower, the operating temps of the engine. It has to do with several factors, including the make up of the oil. But a lot of the increased heat is from the fact that residule oil retains heat and does not disapate it well. If you have soo much oil that it is not mostly burnt off in the combustion of the fuel then the remaining oil will retain the heat and cause the engine to run hotter.
Counterintuitive I know, but true none-the-less.
