    2 stroke nitromethane

    Just curious if anyone has tried using any of these nitromethane additives to a 2 stroke engine.

    There are several fuels called "nitromethane". The stuff you can buy as an additive at Autozone is NOT the one you and I are used to hearing about in the fuel cars. Why? Because nitro and gasoline do not mix. Besides, a/f ratio, ignition timing, and compression ratio are completely different in a fuel engine. Jetting we can do - but who has a timing curve set up for any given percentage of nitro for our skis? And the compression ratio required to take advantage of this fuel would hammer our bottom end to death.

    My opinion - this stuff would be useless in our skis.

    I didnt think nitro mixed with gasoline.. I always knew it to be good ole alcohol. So the stuff that mixes with the gasoline is junk, i will agree with that, that was my hunch.. So now take a look at this stuff that is for little bitty 2 strokes, and IS mixed with alcohol.. Why wouldnt this work on a bigger 2 stroke. I realize its damn expensive, but a home brew should be possible, and lowering the percent of nitro could raise power dramatically and still have a engine with a decent life span... Is the stuff in this mix (real nitro) ?

    That's for r/c engines running at 30,000 rpm, and a glow plug. Not a chance!

    I bet Nitro would beat the roller bearing to death

    I was thinking the exact same thing.
    My t-maxx uses 30% nitro.

    I love the smell of that stuff burning.

    I had a .12 truck, a .35 & .25 plane, a .32 heli, a .35 airboat, and a twin engine home made hovercraft.

    I used to use stuff called COXOK (pronounced Cozoc) by Klotz in my quads. I had to go one size higher on the main jet. I was able to run a 1 tooth smaller rear sprocket on the quad. Since I was racing up hill in sand at Glamis it did make a difference. A one cylinder suzuki 500 is a lot easier and cheaper to replace than a topend on than a waverunner. I never had a problem with it.

    What else can you tell me about it spud, cant find anything in a google search! Im ready to be a gineau pig here... Im not planning on making a top fuel style nitro mix here, a much lower percentage of nitro.... I dont want to blow my crank out the bottom of my hull at 90 mph!!!
