Default Homemade fuel for .12 Novarossi RE

I have a friend who is "playing" in 1/1 drag racing. They use hundreds of liters methanol and nitro a year. I could get both very cheap and mix my own fuel. All I need to know is what oil to use?

I could get some Shell Racing M or X, from another friend of mine who uses it in karting. If this oil will be good for my mix I could get my fuel mixed under 2e/l =)

So I'm thinking of using 16% nitro and these oils (both or either one). Does anyone have any experience in these oils?

Sorry I could not get the link to work. Copy both of these lines one by one and click "Shell Advance" --> "racing engine oil"


Is the mixture mixed by volume or weight?

If the Shell oils don't work what oils are recommended. I can't get Klotz here. I would have to order it overseas and the price would go too high...

Local bike shops are selling Motorex oils (both castor and synthetic)?

Mix all ingredients by volume, never by weight. It seems the Shell Racing M could be a castor based oil going by a google search I tried. However, all the info was in languages you're more likely to understand
