Depends on the engine, glow plug, air pressure, ambient temperature, elevation, MANY factors. 16% is the norm for 1/10th (.12 engines), 20% is ok if your club allows it. 33% is not a good idea in a small engine. Stick with 16%, you'll never be able to understand the performance difference in a competition motor, provided it is correctly tuned. It is also harder to tune the higher percentage you use.

i run my ntc3 with OS .18tz at 20% and it runs fine. when you need to start to worry about the nitro percentage is when your racing and you need the extra edge over your opponents. and its not like if you just start to race that you should just jump in % its when your a really good racer and you want a little more power. if you are bashing getting expensive fuels is just stupid your trowing your money away. remember the car doesn't make the driver the driver makes the car.

Ok thank you all.

I'll pay too team magic G4 rtr, my second car. It's a motor 2.1cc. 16% fuel it's good? It's better than 20%? Because in my coutry it doesnt 20%, there is 16 and 25%.

Thanks
