So it defeats the whole purpose to convert to deisel, if its not the pump deisel, which is about 5bucks a gallon, you might as well just stick with Nitro.

Don't know. Supposedly it's stronger, but if it screws with the air/fuel mixtures blend and or adds additional rotating mass to the engine, would it be effective?

Might make it stronger but you're losing the rev and some efficiency since you're losing that knife-edge cut on the rod.
LSP lots of Khz, Werks .28 8 port.

Revo 2.5, TRX 3.3 Engine, Center Diff. Fast and Turns on a dime.
