Jase said its metho and water that you need to inject into it not methanol

Yeah metho is another option but I don't think it's as beneficial as methanol. I think I'm just gonna put it off for now anyways, just hopefully the guy that's doin my tune gets it right and I don't melt any pistons lol.

I don't see why it can't be used in burnout comps but still not be allowed in racing. I guess it's still the old story about it's safety, which is a joke as it is a safer fuel than unleaded.

As far as needing training to put out the fire if it was to happen, you simply use water!

It could bring quite a few more entrants from a higher level which would also attract more spectators, win win situation.

As I've said before there has been several cars using it at dirt circuit burnout comps without incident.

Thats it...thats all!
