Default Nitromethane from RC Car Fuel?

Is there any disadvantage to using RC Car Nitro fuels? Would the % of oil/lubricant in the fuels have any poor effects on a gasoline engine?

I am not sure of nitromethane fuel, it sounds very explosive to me. the top top top fuel dragster uses them. I think the fuel can run the engine alone without and air.

Are you mixing the nitromethane with water or fuel?

I saw the a faxed dyno result from John, nearly 70 horses increase from 210, was it your car?

Unfortunately the picture as not clear since the fax print out didn't show the "no water" plot since it was in blue.

No it wasnt my car, that was a Cosworth, it has 70 Hp and 150 Nm more with using my mix. The nex weeks we gonna test with 50/50.

I have a Seat Ibiza 1.8T, i am using a dual pump and dual nozzle and an cooler in the front ,
the power with using the nitromethane mix is 280Whp en 420 NM.

On the dyno my car takes in 4th gear 5.2 secs to the max, with using water with Nitromethane it takes 3.2 secs. I use 2 nozzles 0.5.

Maybe i see you at Birmingham, greetzzz Jack

I was talking to John about the pump seals standing up to the nitromethane, if you are making these crazy power, it is worth making the pump suitable for nitro-up to 50%.

The fax was in dutch and I can't read dutch.

What was your power before Nitromethane/water injection? Are you sure you want to go for 50/50? very explosive!!!

It must be late in Holland.

We will be there between 13th -16th, Hall 10, stand number 10324. There will be new products for the 2005.

30% Nitro give you a gain from 230 -280HP? :shock: Nice :razz:
