Mugen Seiki Rules



This is what I use, 15% nitro, 12% lube, Klotz. Previously I tried 15% lube, Caster, the engine response was slower. Try to have atleast 10% oil. Works well on both my TT cars.

What mail4ajo is saying is that he gets good performance with 15% nitro, 12% lubricant (Klotz brand synthetic), and the rest 73% methanol.

He also tried with 15% ordinary castor oil (instead of Klotz synthetic oil) and the performance was not very good.  Not sure if this was with 15% nitro or not.

He is saying that you should use at least 10% lubricant (lube); regardless of whether it is synthetic (like Klotz) or plain castor.

Thanks for the explaination, Anwar. I have never tried without Nitro. Someone who never uses nitro says it works fine. He claims that only 20% and above will make a difference.

Use a min of 10-12% lubricant. So without nitro, you can make a litre with 900ml methanol and 100ml lubricant. Let us know how it works.

I have tried without Nitro several times, the cars work just fine. There is a loss of power though but does not matter if you are not racing but just bashing in the backyard or the local ground.

my friends generally use 20% lubrication (Castor) and remaining 80% is methanol on there trucks but lately they have shifted to 5 to 10 % nitro content depending on engine size there reason the engine idles better n some Chinese once don't even start with out nitro . So here is there fuel composition= 20% lubrication (can be plain synthetic or Castor oil or both) + 5-20% nitro + remaining is methanol

hope it helps
