Trx 33%

https://traxxas.com/products/parts/5030

What is the oil percentage of Traxxas Top Fuel 33% nitro? The web page talks to its use of a combination of synthetic and castor oil, but does not talk specifically to an oil percentage.

Web page headlines talk to RC Pro Championships 2004-2009. Figure some of the locals hereabouts know percent oil content.

When rebuilding a motor when do you know if you have to change the sleeve and Pistons?

When it starts flaming out all the time and won't hold a tune is usually when u need to change them. But first change the bearings.

If you’re putting a 2.0L engine in an RC car, you’re going to be changing a lot more than wiring.
