I used it many years ago, and had problems with carbon build up, I switched to Amsoil, and never looked back, I'm sure there have been lots of changes in the Klotz Oil line, as most, so it might be better now.. XGM/VGM

I use it in the Spectra G and the Radikal. Last time I had an opportunity to look inside the top end of one of the motors, it looked perfect and had no more or less carbon buildup than I would expect from any other oil.

Some obsolete nitro helis too...

Used Klotz for a short time in my gasser, engine siezed at one time destroying the piston and cyl. Changed to Amsoil and didn't like the carbon build up. For the last two years I've been using the synthetic shown in my gallery, in my Spectra and 1005, and I'm very satisfied with it.
Still use 2 oz/gal of Klotz in my plank four cycle engines though.

OIL is a real "iffy" subject here. If you get a hundred replies, you will get a hundred differant opinions.

oil thread is as bad a the off topic religion thread.

I agree though. I did use Klotz as well (r50) its ok, but not the best for our application. My favorate is the quicksilver right now. Absolutelly no buildup on engine and worked better than amsoil for me.
