    OK, so one hobby shop told me that I should be running 10% because its hot here and its better for the engine. Then another hobby shop told me that I should be running 20%, and that 10% actually makes the engine work harder. So which HS is right?
    thx justin

    I'm surpised that the other guy didnt suggest 30%, listen use what your engine runs best on bottom line reguardless what the temp is . A good combo. of plug heat and nitro % is the key to a fast reliable long lasting engine, RED

    10% wont give the engine as much power as 20% and 20% wont give as much power as 30% and so on. Maybe they use 10% because 20% gives it to much power and they can't handle it lol.
