Recently purchased a TT46 pro, and was wondering if 2stroke engine oil can be used instead of castor oil.
I won't be looking to add Nitro, so it's just going to be a mix of methanol and 2S oil.
Please suggest!

NO.
Based on my experience.
However,
Please try a sample, and see if it separates after a while...

If you are new to glow engines, you have twochoices:
1. Go with known fuels/mixtures
2. Try your own combos

Let us know the results if you use 2stroke oil...
Regards

As Iyer sir said :  NO

Oneof the important functions of the oil in a glow engine (apart from lubrication) is to carry the developed heat away without breaking down.

This is why castor is preferred - it can be used at high temperatures without breaking down chemically. Effective heat removal is critical - if not done properly the engine will overheat and cut out, or worse, seize!

All the above + the common 2T oils will not mix with methanol

Best quality of castor oil is that it comes out from exhaust as it is.

I know that Castor Oil is efficient and cost effective.  But was curious to know, whether any alternative oil (may be engine oil) can be used with methanol for glow engines ?

Synthetic oils (with some Castor Oil percentage) are available eg http://www.klotzlube.com/radio_control_.html. But for breaking in a new engine, ensure some percentage of Castor Oil, as recommended by all engine manufacturers
