Blue Thunder for Engine Break-in

I'm going to be breaking in my first nitro (an RC10GT FT w. AE .15)
and was wondering which of the Blue Thunder formulas would be best?

My LHS sold me a bottle that just says "Blue Thunder" on it so I don't
think its the "Race Formula" that Associated recommends. According to
Dynamite's website, the Race Formula has a higher percentage of Castor
oil.

My bottle doesn't look like the "Sport Formula" on the website either,
so I'm guessing the original BT is what I have and they're now calling
it Sport Formula, or vice-versa.

http://www.dynamiterc.com/Products/BlueThunder/

Anyways, should I stick to what I have, or get the Race Formula?

Thanks!

Re: Blue Thunder for Engine Break-in

If you have an older bottle - I guess they just changed the packaging
recently -
Then its probably just like mine...it doesnt say 'sport' or 'race', but it
does say 'contains ZX-7 additive'.

Either way, its all good fuel and your car will like it. In the future, you
will have to decide which to buy, sport or race. I would try a quart of the
race, but probably stick with sport.

I wouldnt worry about type of fuel as long as your running 20%.Just remember
that if you switch brands you must re break it in again as all fuels use
differant amounts of lubricants.I myself use custom blended fuel.I found
blue thunder doesnt burn efficiently for my application and leaves too much
oil residue .It takes a lot of experimenting with differant brands before
you find the one that will perform for you the way you want it to

Re: Blue Thunder for Engine Break-in

Thanks Paul. I'll just stick to what I've got and focus on a proper
break-in.

As a learning excercise, could I ask what kind of an application have
you got, plus what are you looking for in your blend? Are you perhaps
in an altitude or climate where you need different components in your
fuel? What would those be? Just curious.

Re: Blue Thunder for Engine Break-in

I have tried blue thunder in both my tmaxx and Hpi super nitro .Then I
switched to a local company called S&W racing fuel.What I have found thats
most important to me is that it makes the engine run cooler.Most of the guys
around here run various manufacturers cars and trucks and all have made the
change.I have also noticed it appears to run more efficiently and
thoroughly.
