    Picking up my revo tomorrow what fuel to buy?

    Im picking up my revo tomorrow (which im buying used and has a .28 axial big block conversion) I wanted to get sone info on what fuel percents u guys are running? And if running a big block changes what type of fuel I should be running as well as brand.

    I did do a search but just wanted to make sure I am running the correct fuel through her to make her last ad long as possible.

    Thanks guys

    Typically lower nitro content means less engine wear but also less performance. I'm running sidewinder strike team v2 30% but have run a few different brands, and they all seem descent just some tune better than others. Sidewinder, Byron's, odonells are a few good ones. I'd say 30% for racing 20 or maybe even 10% for bashing.

    I run odonells 20% race fuel,works great with my revo.I just bash and do some high speed runs but it seems like the motor is happy for being old.Just what ever you do,do not use top fuel(blue fuel) if you local hobby shop has odonells speed blend 20% go with that,keeps the motor cool and running very good.But after you get use to your truck and go threw a gallon,try going with the race fuel from odonnel.20% is the best.Odonells is cheap to.
