Default New 1/10 nitro buggy help.

I have a new 1/10 nitro buggy with a new .16xp engine. The beginner model from exceedrc.
I purchased torco 20% heli fuel by accident. My question is. Will torco heli 20% work to break it in.

If you’re going with a nitro buggy, you’ll probably want to go with 1/8 scale. I’ve got a (very old) sportwerks turmoil. If parts were still produced, I would recommend it 100%, as I’m in love with the thing. That said, I’ve heard very good thing about the Losi 8ight, and it will probably be my next rc purchase.

Well, OS recommends " at least 18% oil so 20% oil won't hurt your engine. My personal feelings are it should be about 10-12% unless you're racing. Probably going to foul plugs with 20% oil and not run real clean but it shouldn't hurt the motor. The torco 20% heli fuel I looked at has 22% oil. Shouldn't make too much difference but 22% oil is really getting up there for car fuel.

That 20%Heli on the sticker on the jug is refering to the % of nitro.

He's not looking to get a buggy, he already has a buggy he's asking about fuel for..
