We've never run the engine with a fuel that has that much nitro. You'll likely have to add a cylinder head gasket to lower the compression to prevent detonation. Larger engines usually don't like high nitro fuels without some serious rework. The 1.60 FX isn't really timed or compressed for high-nitro fuels.
