Hi guys I am wondering if I can use any 2 stroke oil or does it matter?
Thanks for your help.
Yes you can, I used bel ray h1r and it smelled delightful with my old 5b clone, but truthfully valvoline multi use two stroke oil is probs good. you can use any 2 stroke oil you like just stay away from the super cheap stuff. You could run Klotz and that would smell wonderful lol. I am too crazy of a 2 stroke guy haha well I own a KTM 200 so lol
Ok great thanks buddy.
the manual also says to mix 25:1 gas oil mix, well that is what mine said anyways. As it came with a little mixing gas jug. I bet your happy to get this thing a losi 5t would be like my dream rc lol. But what is true, is these motors are nothing more than high compression weed wacker motors, well they are very closly based So that is why I assumed the oil would be similar.
Check your owners manual for specific Oil needs .. If it just says 2 stroke then its open to interpretation
buy a 2 stroke oil for motorcycles only. klotz screws the top of the piston up, to much carbon build up in the cyl, yamalube, Honda, or any racing 2 stroke oil is good, remember the quality of the fuel and the oil make the difference night and day....
