Default Nitro fuel. And oil

I was thinking...My rc cars run at 28k rpms and 12:1 compression. Couldnt we use this nitro fuel with aturbo where detonation is a problem? sure its expensive at 25$ a gallon, But if your just gona goto the drags then pour that and 2 gallons of race gas in, and you should be good. I know this stuff has synthetic oil in it which can be bad in car gas, But it cant be too bad... And with the ammount of compression a turbo makes under boost it would have no problem detonating that nitro. And the other part....What is good oil? I know turbos are hard on the oil, Because there oil cooled. I dont trust oil companies thou, So i just want to know if anyone has bad/good experience with oil and turbo. Im sure they dont make a difference, But im about to do my fluid/oil/brake/filter change before i put my turbo on the road. Also does the redline trans and water wetter really work as good as people say? as in any + hand-on experience anyones had?

Redline water additive worked wonders during the summer heat on my supra just be careful not to put too much of it during the winter cause on some places it will freeze inside the radiator (note: thats a bad thing :end note) for my car I bought the bigger container and put around 1/3 and the rest 50/50. Ran cooler than a mofo. My preference oil is the quaker state high rev. Used it so far and had no problems. Like it cause its suppose to dissipate heat a little better than other oils.
