Nitro Methane Hobby Fuel

Unread postAuthor: colpin » Mon May 15, 2006 10:27 pm

I’m new to the spudgun's and I was brainstorming a idea for a good fuel. And today I had the idea to go to the local hobby shop and get some Nitro Methane hobby fuel for a r/c car. It burns hot and fast and is extremely combustible. So I was wondering if anyone has ever tried using this and how well it worked or how bad it worked. Any thoughts would be good so I don’t blow myself when I try it.

Nitromethane, from the wikipedia artical, will provide significantly more power.
You'll want to use about .5ml per liter of chamber volume.

It will probably work better sprayed. I tryed using a liquid fuel once (denatured alcohol) and I poured it. The puddle it created stayed on fire after the shot instead of extinguishing and nearly melted the chamber.
