Not sure, was think about going to a higher nitro myself. I hear that if you use a higher nitro, you would get lower temps and better performance.

Jumping up to 30% nitro will boost performance but check the instructions for your engine... it may have head shims set to work best at 20%. You may have to add a head shim to take full advantage of the extra 10% nitro. Also, when you run higher nitro the needle valve set-up is a little "tighter" for margin of error...it's generally easier to run too lean if you're not careful. As far as temp goes....let's just say...you can't make a bigger flame burn cooler than a small one. Each engine runs at a sweet spot that is determined by many factors. Use sight, sound and temperature to tune your engine. If a peticular glow plug and fuel combination has worked for you in the past then stick with it...don't mess with a good thing
To finish first....first ya gotta finish!

Thanks for all the responses guys. I ended up going 30 Blu Thunder and put a 30 dollar Duratrax pipe on my Revo, and it REALLY woke it up. It will wheelie on pavement from time to time now. Not sure if it was the fuel or pipe.
The Blu thunder burns way cleaner then the Eliminator I had, probably because of the lower oil content...
