I think I am going to break down and get this truck.  Tower Hobbies says it
needs 10-40% nitromethane, 18% lubricant.  What is a good fuel to use in it?

Blue thunder 20% (i use it)
Odonnel,
trinity.

These fuels have a good reputation - as do others,
i just cant think of em.
stick with 20% if its locally available. dont go
too far either way.
(ex: 15% is good, 10% is ok, 5% isnt enough for my
taste....)

My advice- set aside about $500 for upgrades, so you don't have to keep
putting the fragile bastard on a shelf till parts arrive.

If you're interested- email me directly and I'll go over the full list of
parts you'll need. You might also try HPI's website to see all the issues
they're having with this truck. IMHO, if you're just starting out, you'd be
MUCH better off with a traxxas truck or RC10GT. Hell-- at LEAST spring for
the Nitro MT RACER version.....

Not really a newbie.  I have put together a Losi XXXT and electric rc10gt.

I've never had any problems with mine, while my friends with the traxxas and
team assoc are always breaking on race day.
It's a tough truck, and would be worth your money.  And just like any truck
that you buy, you're going to have to get a few upgrades, like tires, clutch
and exhaust.  no biggie though.

good luck
