Nitro Fuel for RC

What is it.

Where to Buy Nitro fuel.

Nitro Fuel

Buying a RC with a  Nitro Engines, RC Nitro Fuel is needed to run them.

There is a Nitro Fuel ,  that is made to protect your Nitro engine

Nitro Fuel protects  the power performance and engine life.

It is a very important, to learn everything about how your engines runs, and to know what nitro fuel you should run in it.

Most people don’t understand what is in Nitro Fuel.

How it effect the power performance and engine life.

What is in it.

Mixture of Castor Oil, Synthetic Lubricant, Nitro and Methanol.


There is a blend of natural oil & Synthetic oils are in a fuel mix.

Castor Oil & KL198 Synthetic Lubricant.

Based on Klotz Original Techni Plate, this light weight formula in a 100% Pure Synthetic Lubricant. Improves throttle response and provides enhanced flowability, easier needle adjustments, smoother transition from low to high speed. KL-198 increases fuel economy, Less Drag – More Power.


The largest component of nitro fuel, is that part of the fuel that burns. It’s a simple compound made of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen atoms. Methanol can burn in air, even without the other components in nitro fuel.

An important thing to remember about methanol is that it is hygroscopic.

Meaning that it absorbs moisture from the air. This is the reason that it is so important to keep fuel containers tightly sealed.

If you don’t, moisture in the air will be drawn into the fuel, causing it to spoil.


Is a simple compound, consisting of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen atoms.

The “nitro” is from nitrogen, which is what air is mostly made of (not oxygen, as commonly believed). Nitromethane is flammable on its own, even without oxygen, but it has a very high burning point—well over 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

When mixed with methanol, nitromethane acts as a catalyst, increasing the burn rate of the fuel blend to produce more power. The more nitromethane that is used in the fuel blend, the faster the fuel can burn, letting the engine run at higher rpm. The big percentage number you see on a bottle of fuel is its nitro content, which generally ranges from 10-40%.

For all-around use, 20% nitro is the most popular choice. Nitromethane and methanol are sourced by fuel makers rather than manufactured, so different brands don’t lay claim to unique or better nitromethane and methanol.

The conditions in which these materials are stored and mixed greatly affects fuel quality.


Lots of companies offer nitro fuels for cars, and every fuel company has a variety of blends and different quality of components in their product lines.

While the ingredients are pretty basic, the differences lie in the lubricant component. Although the amount of lubricant in a blend is usually stated right up front, every manufacturer has its own recipe for the chemical components used to make the lubricant. While most still depend on some castor oil, especially for its premium fuels, the synthetic portion of the mix is proprietary and the lubricant requirements for a race fuel are different than for a general-running fuel.

A race fuel should burn cleanly and expel thoroughly so that more fresh fuel can come in for the next combustion cycle. The fuel you choose for fun-running should have sufficient protective lubrication to minimize engine wear. That doesn’t mean that you can’t run a 40% nitro blend with 9% lubricants in your backyard — you’ll just be replacing the engine’s piston and sleeve more often.

Sport mix is 20% nitro blend with 14% Lubricants.

The first guideline for your fuel selection should be what your engine manufacturer recommends. Usually, the guidelines are for engine longevity, not for performance.

So read your Instruction Book that comes with your motor information. Mostly it is 12% Oils 25 % Nitro and the other part is Methanol. 12+25=37-100=63% Methanol. Oils are around 4% castor & 8% Synthetic.

Drift Cars 1/10 Scale

Drift Cars 1/10 Scale.

What is Drifting.

Drifting is a driving style in which the driver uses the throttle, brakes, clutch, gear shifting and steering input to keep the car in a state of oversteer while manoeuvring from turn to turn. Drifters emphasise car control by coordinating the amount of counter steer (or opposite lock) with the simultaneous modulation of the throttle and brakes to shift the weight balance of the car back and forth through the turns. Furthermore, they strive to achieve this while adhering to the standard racing lines (or designated “clipping points” if drifting in competition) and maintaining extreme slip angles.

Hovercraft vessels are operated by Pilots. (like a aircraft Pilots).

Hovercraft, travel over land, water, mud or ice. Hovercraft can travel nearly every where that is flat.
A Hovercraft has blowers to blow large volumes of air below there hull. That make it move.

The pressure difference between the higher pressure air below the hull and lower pressure ambient air above it produces lift, which causes the hull to float above the running surface.

For stability reasons, the air is typically blown through slots or holes around the outside of a disk- or oval-shaped platform, giving most hovercraft a characteristic rounded-rectangle shape.

Typically this cushion is contained within a flexible “skirt”, which allows the vehicle to travel over small obstructions without damage.

About RC Batteries and Charges.

About Batteries For Remote Control


No Matter, if R/C Car, R/C Flight or R/C boat Batteries.

Lipo batteries put your ordinary NiMH or NICD to shame,  going over the reasons why,  I will mention a few key things about lipo:

Lipo holds Voltage a LOT better.

Where as your NiMH battery will be going downhill lap after lap in it’s performance, with Lipo, you would almost not know the difference until the battery is near empty.

Lipo Offers higher power density.
Allowing you to run high powered 1/8 and 1/5 rigs that draw a LOT of amps.
– Modern Lipo chemistry allows you to safely charge and discharge at much higher rate than NiMH.

Start with a little bit of Lipo specification explanation and then go into some formulas and examples.

Any lipo on the market is going to have several parameters that determine it’s application:
– Cell count. Every lipo cell is roughly 3.7 Volts. Total amount of cells determines batteries total voltage. Ex: 2S = 7.4 Volts; 3S = 11.1 Volts etc.
– Milli Amp rating. Thing of it as lipos fuel tank. You’ll see anywhere from 50Mah to 12,000Mah batteries out there. Mah amount directly affects batteries form factor, so make sure to measure your battery tray before you go out and buy a 12,000Mah batt hoping to run it for 2 hrs straight.
– Discharge Rating: It’s indicated with a small “c”, preceded by a number. This number, along with the batteries capacity in Mah is going to determine the max amp output of your lipo. I will elaborate on this later.
– Charge Rating. Indicated with a capital “C”, preceded by a number. This number combined with batteries capacity is going to determine it’s maximum safe Amp/hr intake when charging.

Example: 2S 5,000Mah 40c 5C
^ ^ ^ ^
Cell Count Capacity Discharge. Rate Charge Rate

*Any battery is going to have a min and max discharge rate. Example above is 40c-50c

So now that we’ve covered basics, lets go over actually figuring out what each of those numbers does and how to figure out what battery you can get for your particular application.

Here are some factors that are going to determine which battery to get:
– Battery tray size
– Cell count permitted by race regulations or Motor/ESC limits
– Motor Amp draw at peak power
