I was wondering what fuel most people use and what % you run?
I run mostly Traxxas 20% and some Wildcat 20% if I can get it. The Klotz in the Wildcat smells great.
traxxas top fuel 33% and a hot plug......................
runs like a ...................... unhappy date lol
there's no life like a LOW LIFE!
I use O'Donnell 20% speed blend I like it because it make tuning the 3.3 easy-er and it makes my Slayer pro run like a bat out of you know where.

Traxxas top fuel is
If you prefer a different fuel than feel free to post it, that's what the O.P. was asking
There's no need to bash Traxxas Top Fuel, if you don't care for it.

im just a normal basher and i use byrons 20%. never have any problems with my 3.3 motors. i barely have to retune them each year. my s-maxx hasent been tuned in three years. it still starts every time. it runs strong, and great power. none of my 3.3 motors are tuned to the max. i like a little puff of smoke ensuring good lubrication. imo.
I wanted to try 33% and did. Now I want to go back to 20%... will this cause any problems. I'm not talking about going back and forth but just changing back and staying with 20%
I use 20% and what ever is on sale at the local hobby store lol
Revo 2.5r, Slayer Pro 4x4 Picco .26 max.
It's fine, just need to refine every time u switch

Traxxas 20%. Never had any issues with it, and all 3 of my nitros run like champs!
If you can't beat it....destroy it!
I am currently using traxxas 33% and my uncle runs traxxas 20 in his savages, we both find that their is too much oil in the fuel, causing gummed up OWB and such, we were going to go back to sidewinder 20% which we never had any problems with but, we have decided that we are going to make our own fuel. I have managed to get my hands on some alternative Nitro Methane, and Methanol. And we will be using Klotz oil. Should be interesting to see what happens
Slayer Pro turned Revo
I'v decided to try redback 25% racing fuel haven't use it yet though.
I run Byron and Traxxas fuel. The Bryon seems to be more consistant and defently makes the engine live longer.
I only use Traxxas 20% never had any problems with it.
I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran
I run nitroX 20% fuel and it runs like a dream, when the one way bering decides to play
You don't need to plug Nitro into the wall
I use dynamite blue thunder 20% race fuel. I started using it back in the early 90's, and been hooked on it ever sense. My local hobby store stopped selling it. They told me there byron fuel was the best fuel and was a few $ cheaper. I tried the byron fuel, and maybe used approx half a gal. And gave the rest away. It was not worth the headache. I would have tried the traxxas fuel, but they don't sale that either! I always here them talking about how bad the traxxas fuel is! That it just sets in a warehouse, tell someone buys it. Its obvious they get some kind of incentives for pushing byron fuels. I did find a place that sales the dynamite fuel, along with morgan fuels. He told me that he would get the traxxas fuel for me if i wanted it! They just happen to sale more airplane stuff then rc car stuff. Its nice to find a hobby store thats not pushy. Btw i don't think traxxas would put out a fuel that would make their products run like crap! Enough said.
My break in was with traxxas 20% and since then Ive been using O'Donnell 20% race fuel and it works great
