RC nitro fuel - where do i get some??
I'm back in town, only for 1 days tho.
In the meanwhile, i have gone and spluged the cash on a IC engine RC Subaru WRX model.
The only thing is since its illegalk to fly with the fuel, i couldnt bring that along.
So,, the question is where in bombay can i get my hands on good quality Nitromethane/ methanol RC glowplug fuel???
Much waiting to play with the car.
so any ideas welcome as well as if you know the cost as well

aahhhhh..nice one bro... anyways i dont thing you can get the fuel here but you can try the dealer MODELART.. he deals in scale model cars/bikes has exclusive showroom for these in mumbai and bangalore...maybe he can help you out...
Just a question ... cant we use ZIPPO FUEL for the same????

Thanks for the info - Zippo runs naptha, which is i guess kerosene comparable and not very volatile, where as RC cars run Methanol blends which are highly volatile.
Their engines are highly sensitive and extremely cranky and high strung. Give them some funny stuff and they will make your life miserable. Gotta have the correct stuff.
@khanak - more details : well its RTR, ie pre assembled. was planning to get the kit but the dealer advised me to go assembled as a first timer. good advice IMO. Its got a top whack of abt 60kmph, 4 wheel drive, two gears w/ auto gearbox.
and typo - i mean i'm in town for 10 days.
