I have a 4mil Cub on Alky and want to run some Nitromethane in it. I have the Nitro and the Hydrometer kit to mix it. Would like to know if any of you guys run the stuff and if so, what percentage of nitro do you use. Any advice on this would be great. Don`t want to go out and blow the head of or shove rods through the cases.

It is the VP M5 that has the 6% nitro, I have already talked to them. The price for it is 10.00 a gallon. I already have the nitro and the kit, so it is more feasable to mix my own. Also I was told to mix 1 quart of touene to the final mix, does that sound right to you?

Keep in mind that M5 has 6% nitropropane. Not Nitromethane. The M5 will should give a little power increase, but not enough to mess with IMO. Mixing your own is the way to go. Just make sure you read all you can about it. There is alot of good info out there.

QUOTE (AMChassis @ Dec 17 2008, 06:36 AM) index.php?act=findpost&pid=21065the best advice with nitro is not to use it,carburetors can not flow enough to support it.If you are wanting more power use nitrous. You can`t run nitrous on a IHRA sanctioned track and that is the closest to me. Not suppose to run nitromethane either but it is easier to get away with than nitrous. Also I am running a pump with the 40mm lectrons, thinking about adding another pump and one or two more power jets.
