I was wondering whether or not it would be worth the effort / WoW factor to run Nitro in the Belond roadster since that was his fuel of choice. I like to keep this car as authentic as possible and have been kicking the idea of mixing nitro in the tank around for awhile. So I added this link to the roadster running on 20% Nitro http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLFTO0Bx9-E <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/WLFTO0Bx9-E?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> but Sandy's "Hot Fuel" fuel formula of choice in 1942 was 58% Methanol, 20% low octane gas, 20% Nitro, 2% Castor oil, 572.0 cc Xylene per gal., 46.3 cc Ethyl Iodine per gal., 1.0cc per gallon Ethyl fluid. I Didn't blend this and I don't recommended doing it either. Instead I blended 55% Methanol, 20 % Nitro, 20% race gas 4% Benzol and 1% Castor oil. Results: When the jetting is close you can barely tell there is nitro present but as it loads up there is a bit more cackle and it does rev a little quicker. Yes it burns your eyes and people do know your running alcohol and the castor oil is pretty easy to decipher. That seems to get more people excited then anything else. But I also tried VP M5 which is a complex hydrocarbon, methanol blend and it does run a lot harder on that but it smells "orangey" and I'm not sure either is really worth the effort. At least this way if you were wondering what it would sound like if you tipped the can on your flattie, now you have an idea.
