    OK, they're telling me to use 2.6oz to a gallon (50:1) and that's it.

    Do you agree?

    PS. I live in South Florida, it's hot and humid...85-95 degrees in the summer.

    I believe, not sure exactly, that AMsoil is all synthetic. Not recommended to use synthetics on break-ins. After it's broken in I guess.

    50:1 for a happy time? I don't think so. I used that same oil in my happy time at a 28:1 ratio and it did fine. That was the recommended ratio given by Kings motors. I could be wrong but HT's need lubrication.

    Jim - 4.5oz per gallon to make 28:1. I need to think in ounces so I know how much to pour, sorry. :) OK...I'll give that a try.

    I have the BoyGoFast and they say 35:1 after break in. I've had about 4 gallons through it now. I'm broken in, right? I think his motors came with the bearings instead of all bushings? I haven't taken mine apart.

    50:1 in a well broken engine will work with Saber, but I would go 35:1 or 40:1

    Pablo - thank you. I will go with more oil. :) Can't hurt, right?

    28:1 was recommended for break-in and then 32:1 thereafter with the Kings motorkit...I'm no expert and have been known to pass information on without knowing the "how comes". Pablo probably knows a lot more than some of us about oil and it's lubricity; I'd go with his recommendations.

    Does anyone know if the high performance Amsoil will work better than the regular? I found some in the section that sells dirt bike and quad parts, and it's a bit more expensive, but if I can have the best, I want it!

    Are you seeing Dominator or Interceptor?

    I've been running Dominator at about 30:1 for about a month now. Performance is great. It's not a true smokeless oil as Saber is, but when the engine is warm I don't see any smoke. Engine appears nice and clean so far.

    The reason I mainly recommend SABER is - from all I've read and seen, these engines need all the oil they can handle. Using SABER at 30:1 or 35:1 is very oily.

    Interceptor - have not tried in the HT engine yet.

    How many ounces of Amsoil are we talking then to make it right? 3? I like to talk in ounces. I use about 5 ounces per gallon on regular basis or 4 1/2 if I want to go fast on a gallon. I use semi synthetic oil.

    Here is a ratio calculator.

    30:1 is 4.27 (4 1/4) oz per gallon
    35:1 is 3.66 (3 2/3) oz per gallon
    40:1 is 3.2 (3 1/4) oz per gallon

    Natch 32:1 is 4 oz per gallon.

    5 oz per gallon = 25.6:1
