i used to use 20% traxxas, but they sold out of 20% so i ended up buying a gallon of trinity 30% and it's great. runs a little stronger, and stopped killing bearings...i love it.

If bashing only i think 30% is overkill. You wont notice much difference between 20 to 30%.

I run 30% exclusively in my helis and trucks. Cooler temps, more power and broader range on the needles.

My xl actually runs cooler with 30%, and tuning seems much easier, and a noticable difference in power. Byrons race with 11%lubrication.

Yup, classic attributes of 30%! Cooler temps, more power, broader range on the needles.

Yeah buddy! That's the good stuff! I had to set all my engines quite a bit leaner after switching, I also had to set the idle down! Glen
