Hi my name is Charlie. Im a Solider currently deployed here in Iraq. I was very happy to find that a someone has built an RC track right here at Camp Liberty in Baghdad Iraq . Its called The Baghdad International Speedway. A few events have been held here in the past, with big sponsers as well. I have a Ofna Mutilator that I run, and it does really well against the dust and heat. But there is one problem. Im begining to run out of fuel . A guy who has returned back to the states gave me 4 full bottles of fuel before he left. Now Im down to a bottle 1/2. Any ideas on how to get some more out here would be a great help.

hey, the way I got fuel while in Iraq was to get it in kwuait but we were a little closer to kwuait then u are, it's almost impossible to have it shipped to u because it is hazardous cargo and a high shipping cost and the military postal service won't even take packages that have that label.
I'm not telling u to have your mom put it in a two litre sprite bottle or anything like that but I did buy a Revo on e-bay and the dummy sent it full of fuel in the tank and the rest of the fuel in the can and it made it thru so...... by th way if u do find a hobby store in kwuait or Iraq, the fuel
will almost cost u 40 to 50$ a gallon, we paid 40$ for a 3 litre bottle.
good luck finding fuel and keep the head down on the MSR

Its all good now, I had my wife send the fuel to me. The box packaged in a special way and the fuel made it to me with no problems. Thanks
