Having come back from the Lincoln Hillclimb I reread the FAST rules. No superchargers but nothing about fuels. Anybody ever consider Nitros Oxide on a 4 cylinder T or A?
It's a good way to make them change the rules very quickly.
Just ask Andy Granatellie about his turbine Indy car
Funny you would mention Andy..He is one of my idles. Very good promoter who wrote a fun book
"They call me Mr. 500". And he never won the race!
I have an autographed copy of his book..good read.
His Wedge Car is on display at the Speedway Motors museum. Saw it last week at the hillclimb
You might want to add water injection to keep it cool and increase the HP. I would then recommend a good oil filtering system to catch the bearing pieces as they pass by =:-)
Well if you are on O2 you could just plumb a line into the intake . . .
Jon. read the rules. Sorry can't use it.
FUEL:Gasoline only, no exotic fuels or nitrous oxide will be allowed. Injectors and/or electronic management systems are not allowed.
At least its a good way to boost cranckshaft sales LOL
Mark, that link is to the Montana 500 rules, not the Lincoln Hill Climb.
Duh! My bad.
Would anyone notice a little Hydrazine?
A little T-stoff, a little C-stoff, who will know the difference?
I watched a safety film once at Edwards AFB about hydrazine - it said by the time you can smell it, it's too late, you'll be dead.
If you ever wondered why guys in moon suits were the first to walk up to a space shuttle after it landed, it was because the APU used hydrazine.
Is nitrous oxide technically a fuel? I would have thought it would have been considered an oxidizer.
Nitrous Oxide is a chemical form of supercharging. It allows a bunch more oxygen to be injected along with more fuel. FAST rules say pump gas only, no supercharging of any kind.
It's only cheating if you get caught.
