Bump. I'd like to know who did this testing and what exactly did they use. Way too many variables. Sounds like someone wants to sell fuel with less oil for more money. When my lhs used to sell...

No you don't. Just run 5-10% nitro MAX. Most any engine will seal just fine. This is how misinformation is spread. People who talk without any kind of testing.

Do you know by chance what shock weight oil came with the firestorm?

I don't think he's straight up lying.....but if high oil is causing detonation than you must have too...

Why won't they idle down? What's hot? Couldn't that be something else causing a idle problem? I don't see how a few degrees higher suddenly caused an idle down problem.

Well I hope a modded...

Not much. Because my firestorm hit 15000rpm and reaches over 400 degrees with pits from detonation all due to high oil!

I've ran werks. Any synthetic/castor blend at 6% is liable to run good.

Doing more research.....it might be my oil choice that's causing the load up. It improved when I went down to 10% oil. But...

What is it with the lrp. I tried 10% oil and it runs the same temps. Powers basically the same. An improvement I saw is that when it loads up its not as bad with 16% oil.

What makes the idle dip...

Well the idle was set a bit high and it was towards the end of the tank.

So let's say there's zero snugness. Isn't it only gonna get worse as it warms up? Or maybe the piston expands slightly as well to get that perfect seal.

Didn't sound that bad I guess. I think your lsn is close. If it was too rich it wouldn't accelerate that good out of the hole.

Even if the lsn is too rich you can still tune the HSN pretty close....

Couldn't see the vids as they are private. I just lookedthe fuel up.....its all synthetic. At 9% you won't see as much smoke. It might be less by volume. Wouldn't be surprized if it's 7-8.
