07-29-2002, 11:58 AM
i broke my car in with red alert fuel. I finished up the quart of it and want to know if it is ok to swicth fuel brands now. I will probably buy fuel from a hobby shop now and they might not stock that fuel. I heard not to switch fuel brands. to stick with the one u broke it in with. will it be all right to switch to another brand?

You don't want to switch fuels. Different fuels burn at different temperatures, so they will expand the sleeve and piston differently.

I didn't think that switching brands would be that big of a deal Tazz. As long as you went and re-broke the engine in correctly.
Anyway, I'm likely going to swap brands as soon as I run out of what I've got now. I'm only running Traxxas 10%, and thinking of jumping up to a 20% fuel. What do you guys think?

I have changed fuel 3 times and I never had a problem
