    Pre-mix oil test.

    Since I had a couple of different oils to test..I did so yesterday.

    I have been using the Blendzall castor ever since break-in because it is good stuff, that and Lowell recommended a good castor or mineral oil for break-in.

    I only had a couple gallons of fuel left with the blendzall when I was doing top speed runs yesterday. No changes to anything but fuel and oil pre-mix. 40 to 1 in all oil to gas ratios.

    I put a gallon of Dominator/gas into the ski and it picked up 10 rpm's 7230... good pick-up. I thought nahhhh, this cannot be. I put a gallon of Castor/gas back in...it dropped 10 rpm's to 7220.

    Then I decided to try out the new Klotz Super techniplates that has a 20% castor blend with it's synthetic..right out of the bottle. I bought it from the local motoo shop. Mixed 40 to 1.

    I picked up 20rpm's 7240! Ran that gallon out and put the raw castor back, 1 gallon, and dropped 20 rpm's 7220. I kid you not. Just from the oil change.

    The water and RAD were perfect yesterday for undisturbed testing.

    Eventhough I love the Blendzall and am impressed with the Dominator...the clear winner of the day was the Klotz! 20 rpm's from an oil change may not seem like much, but in the game of inches, it is.

    If we just had someone on here who deals with the Techniplatestuff..I want the Klotz.

    Just to clarify about running out of fuel...as soon as the ski started to sputter..I would gently idle back in to the ramp, I was constantly worried about running completely empty..but it did'nt happen.

    Tommy Jordan suggested it can be done this way for testing purposes. He was right.

    interesting findings.

    I run the Klotz R-50 in the race boat and at one stage tried a VP oil, noted lost performance.

    castor blend synth is so nice up the nostrils too

    I am glad I was able to measure the actual differences...I always wondered.

    Now the Klotz stuff, I have never tried up until now..I read on a 4 wheeler board they were using the stuff and noted increases in rpm's.

    The castor helps keep the compression strong and the synthetic must be good for the rpm's. Dunno, but it helped.

    I am now a Klotz oil dealer

    I switched over for a couple of reasons. None of the Amsoil products are compatable with alcohol, and the nitrous boats use Methanol. Because I didnt want the 2 oils (Amsoil and Klotz) to seperate, I just went to all Klotz. On the initial tear down of the Nitrous boat motor (just top end) I noticed everything was nice and lubricated.

    Benol is your straight Castor oil. (smells awesome!)

    R-50 Techniplate has been around for years and is still used by a lot of the 2-stroke racers

    SuperTechniplate is their premium race oil, and has 20% castor blend.

    Outboard Techniplate is their injection oil, and it is catalytic converter safe

    When I ran Klotz I got all kinds of grief about a mosquito killer boat. It does smell good. May have to go back.

    You got a connection we need to hear about? I know we got Amsoil representin'...you're dealing Klotz now?

    When can you get some Techniplate? Not just for me, the rest of the board. Do you have some now?
