I started off using Trinity, but have recently switched to Byron's 20% Race blend, and I have found that my truck performs a lot better and operates at a cooler temp then it did with Trinity, so I'll be using Byrons Smile unless I find something better...

I'll be running it, that's for sure. I know my LHS will carry it too, just like they're carrying the gen 1 stuff now.

run a engine on byrons for a while and run a engine on odonnels for a while then rip it apart dop not use after run on either of these engines 9 times out of ten the od engine will have rust and score marks. i would never run odonnels again. byrons or werks for me.

On my nitro motors i have 1 fuel % and one brand and that is all i use.
Say i use 20% bryrons in my motor that is all i use i dont go and use odonnell 20% i just stick with that percent and brand name for that motor.

i was going to switch to tq but my deal on werks is still alot better then getting tq shipped to my door. tq and tilted are the same fuel just diffrent label and coloring. i ran a couple tanks of tilted and once tuned right it was good but it narrowed my tuning window alot. but its good fuel Very Happy
