Hey. Does anyone have experience with nitromethane or nitropropane?
If so, how well has it worked with your 2-stroke motor?

oww nitro sounds dangerous. This is probably nothing to do with happytimes but this guy blew up a 2 stroke 30cc whipper snipper motor from running nos in it.

Dunno if we're talking about the same stuff my friend bought for his Go-Ped Riot... but it definitely did add quite a bit to the top end.

NOS performance for the serious enthusiast. Developed to increase octane effect up to 7 points. Blended with MMT and our performance-enhancing Powertane, along with Nitromethane and unique lubricants specially developed for high performance engines. Suggested Applications: Recommended for racing combustion engines including carbureted, fuel injected, turbo and super charged. Excellent smoke suppressant for 2 cycle engines, Recommended for high-performance engines plus marine, industrial, lawn, farm and recreational. NOT recommended for use on diesel engines of any type.

His GP460 could already easily spin at 10,000 RPM... after a couple tanks of that "NOS Octane Booster" his clutch springs broke and in turn messed up the clutch pads. =-(

It's prolly a good way to find the biggest weakness[es] in your engine.
