Running Sidewinder 20% backyard basher... ~16% oil. Keeps the engine cool, easy to tune, however I do find it to be a little lacking in power... but with my Maxx its about longevity.

Fuel is personal preference. I found for just bashing top fuel or blue thunder is good because it make the low speed less touchy. For racing Odonell or White lighting (what I use) gives an edge on the power but makes the motor load up a little more if the tuning isn't right on the money.

i ran out of the traxxas top fuel a while ago. My engine was in it's sweet spot with that fuel. I tried the White lightning that i had for my savage and it works fine. I actually did not have to change any thing on the tuning. Now i am out of the White Lightning and my LHS is not going to get any so not i get to try Dynamites fuel.

the chemist says

all major brands highy engineer their fuel, so It will work for it's intended oreration to peak performace on a variety of engines. The key is to stick with the same brand. Petroleum products are molecularly stuctured differently. Bee's don't f*** flys. Your gas molecules don't work as designed when you switch brands. same w/engine oil in your real car too. KEEP IT THE SAME!

I use 1/2 - White Lightning 30% and 1/2 - White Lightning 20% and 10CC's of pure castor oil. This yeilds me a 25% nitro fuel with about 10-11% lube.
