Default RE: Shockwave 36 fuel

If your just Playin you Can run just about any R\C Nitro Fuel. The Higher the Nitro% in the Fuel the more Kick it has.[>:]
I would recommend you run 30% or Better.
You will hear Many Mixed Opinions on OIL%,,,, You Can run anywhere from 12% and UP. More Oil,, More Lube in the engine,, More Forgiving of amateur tunning mistakes,, Longer engine Life etc..
Less Oil= Less Lube, shorter engine life, better tunning skills,, BUT,, More Power\Performance.

I wold recommend you go to your Local Hobby Shop and see what they have. Start with something around the 30% Nitro 18% Oil range and go from there. And some HOT Glow Plugs, You will need to keep Plenty extras on hand. I generally try to keep about a Half Dozen of each Heat range I intend to use In my Track Box.
