Actually your wrong . We had a extra tank that contained race fuel [ gas ] that was sprayed with the Nirous to control the effect.

So in short we were running 99.5% methanol with 15% nitro topped off with Nitrous and to control the reaction race fuel was used with the nitrous.

Under high rpm compression puts spark out, that is why we use C.D.Is with adjustable timing.

Do you even know how to start a fuel car?

That isn't metanol they squirt in the butterflys, it is race gas. Stable fuel..

I bet you never knew this fact as well. In WW2 we had Nitrous on some of our fighters, fact.

It was a one shot system to get a pilot out of trouble, but it hurt the motors. I have seen the manual on this, very intresting.

So in short, stick to things that you really know and have really done.

I'm the first to admit when i'm wrong and i'm happy when someone teaches me something i didn't know.

Your never wrong and know everthing. When i grow up i want to be "JUST LIKE YOU"..

Be open minded and listen to people, you might be suprized at the back grounds of some of us.

yes I KNOW THAT THE GAS HAS A TWO FOLD IT EASES STARTING AND LUBRICATES THE BUTTERFLIES . james you need to read more than just the dictionary to stay up in motorsports . in 1950,s they were starting 50% nitro engines with single mags i would tend to think that a standard hei is better than 50 era mags but with that said if a 50,s era mag lites it of then why would it not do it today. and as for experience ran the nhra 8.90 quick rod circuit a while how about you . ever heard of southern thunder the ellis gang their friends of mine . they ran 30 % just to keep the blower from icing over on the methanol . did you learn anything from shiming the rocker stands yet ? as for the timming nitro likes advance but if your using it as a oxidizer then retard it just as you would nitrous . you simply can not run 100%and keep a motor together it beats the bottom mains to death and running inconel exhaust valves is expensive to but it does make power and lots of it . so does oxygenating fuel with percentages of it to just ask micheal waltrip . keep knowing it all someday you will . mitch James Rumph
