Who runs this fuel ??

I just tuned my 720 rappy motor today switching from VP 110 to U4.2 All I can say is WOW.

Good HP gains, the Gain I was most impressed with was the torque number...........

I'd like to hear what you have to say about this fuel........

Glad ya got'r dialed in Jim, RoosterBuilt's "tune's" are the best in the Pacific Northwest. I've had no problems running U4.2, but was a little concerned with all the residue in the throttlebody and intake port's before it went to RF.

Same here.........

I'm emptying the tank after every use and purging with pump premium (i know what a pain) so I can avoid the residue issue........

I will say this much, The numbers put a BIG smile on my face........

I'm not going to post dyno numbers. For whatever reason I've seen more Internet wars when someone posts up numbers or dyno sheets...........

Not trying to be a jerk just want to be real and run it at my local hill or track and let the quad and rider do the talking...........

VP claims gains of 2hp and 4 ft lbs to be significate just wondering if maybe when you got your gains if it wasnt from gettin it dialed in all together or if it was in just switching fuels thats all???

It was real close (Dialed in) on the VP 110. If that's what VP says, My HP gains did better than that. The torque gains did WAY better than that.

Also I used the same Dyno for tuning both fuels.........

Na the DS was and always will be faster than the Rappy. When David and I tuned it right b-4 Dunefest Dave had sub454 797 on his dyno finishing up on it. We took his quad off and strapped the DS down and went to work dialing it in. The part I found above and beyond was you could hear the DS rev allot faster than the 797 did. Eric knows how to make these DS motors sing AND it did it all the way up to 10500 RPM.........

Bottom line (for me) the DS rotax head with intake & exhaust cams on valves and the magic Eric did to these heads & cams makes them far superior to the 660 based raptor head. single cam, rocker arms ect.

But I'm sure others disagree with that.

I found the same thing with Eric's cams making power over 10,000 RPM . so is that the reason sub454 dug back in to it

I ran U4 years ago and didnt like the way it gummed up my carb. On vp website they claim U4.2 doesnt do that has anyone ran it and seen for themselves? If so I am going back to it cause Im tired of purging and all that crap with U4 or alcohol. Been back on regular race fuel here lately.
