    No point (other than the smell) as not enough compression to make use of it.

    smells like the good old race days...also helps pick out the rev heads in traffic, they are the ones sniffing the air and looking around :D

    edit
    I also put it into my lawn mower, makes the task a little more pleasurable

    PS
    dont use the stuff from the chemist/supermarket as it has a lot of sugar added...get it from a hobbie shop (R/C nitro motors run it) or a good auto speed shop

    Smells. :lolsign:
    Adding oil to the fuel also lowers the octane rating.

    yeah one of the reasons I remove the airbox and run pods ;)
    1 table spoon of castor oil in 10 liters of fuel is negligible at best

    Add a bit of methanol as well. That will boost the octane up a touch
    And make your eyes water

    Our Team Captain reports there is slim pickings for today's (Saturday) test and tune session. At least he and @Linkin will get plenty of runs in to get their bikes right for tomorrow's qualifying and racing. A stiff headwind was present this morning, so we await testing times with anticipation.

    Just in...

    Testing so far has both Team 2fiftycc riders running into the 9's with @Murdo on a best of 9.75@113kph and @Linkin running very strongly with a best of 9.33@118kph. Linkin's 9.33 is now the unofficial fastest 2fiftycc 1/8 mile run. Stay tuned for more updates as they come to hand.

    Got 6 runs in, best 3 were

    Reaction 60ft trap speed time

    0.284 2.176 118.59 9.195
    0.028 2.126 117.78 9.215
    0.255 2.064 115.44 9.380

    I had issues popping back into neutral on the last run, but still got my best 60ft time as I held 16k and dumped the clutch.

    Had headlights unplugged for extra juice, now back in and not working on low beam. Fuse ok, one globe broken filament the other looks like it got hot.

    Need 2 new globes do night riding.

    Back to gunnedah tomorrow for the showdown.

    Well done Linkin. That's spectacular. 9.19 is the fastest 2fiftycc ET by a heap. You're on your way to running an 8 something.
