Hey guys im new to the forums and nitro rcing and i got a few questions. First off id like to ask is it ok to mix different fuels i lil bit of the blue thunder and i mixed it with the red one and the car wouldnt run at all. Another question is tuning the carb does it have to be done for different fuels or once its tuned it works with all? Thanks a lot for your time guys

Re: Mixing Fuels

Mixing Fuel is never a good idea even 2 of the same type from diff containers as for tunign for diff fuels u will always have to retune if u switch fuels and alot of ppl will say not to switch fuels once u have broken a motor in on that fuel .ThaTS not to say u cant do either since i have switched fuels b4 with no ill affects i could see .nitro fuel if not stored properly will also draw moisture into it ruining the fuel.hope some of this helps you out
ps being new to nitro u may not know not only will u need to retune if u switch fuels but u will also need to retune even in weather fluctuations like if it was chilly and overcast in the morning and hot n sunny in the afternoon chances r u will be retuning the rig to get optimal power after the sun came out.nitro tuning is a delicate science

Re: Mixing Fuels

Hmm i see well thanks for the reply. I did manedge to run both fuels fine no problems and the tuning part im allready aware of. Im trying to get a laser heat gun it will make things a lot easyer on me if i had it. But so far i got it tuned preaty ok exept when u give it full throttle it bogs down and wants to die is that the low speed needle or the high speed needle that needs ajustment. Thanks
