I personally think that it was not a wise choice to switch just after breaking in your car. It puts to much stress on the engine. Also, you are best off breaking-in your engine with the same nitro content that you plan on racing/bashing with. As far as switching again goes...I am not going to say anything because I don't want my info...if it's wrong, to blow your motor. I hope this helps, and remember...the next time you want to run 30%, break your engine in with 30%.

head shims

possibly you dont have the head shimmed correctly for 30%. I had to double up the shims on both my rg's to run 30% and hold a good tune. Hope this helps, I dont know what motor you run but someone here should be able to help you. Most lower end motors come shimmed for 20% but some do come ready to run 30%

Good Luck
