I think the roo would be worth trying on your combo, hopefully a 8.20 .Next time i see your car race i will be sniffing around to see if your using it, it has a very distinctive smell. You can smell it all day!!!Can't be good for you though

The batch that i smelt i would describe as very sweet and aromatic like, (Pino)!!! Nah not that strong.You sure they were not using nitromethane or something like that,nothing would suprise me from what i have heard.Good luck with it , try to get down for the november 15th meet the track will be prepared 100% like there last meet. The track you raced on last time you were in melb was ordinary and preppared unsatisfactory.

Q16 has a very low vapour point .. .similar to Roo25 .... if you pour a table spoon size of Roo25 or Q16 on a bench top ... see how quickly it evaporates......

Roo25 and Q16 do not like to be sheared as hard..... ie to be broken up as small ( atomised ) .

We have found some gains with Booster design in Pro Stock .... most of the US carbs have been taylored to suit C25 which does like to be sheared harder...... Roo is a different kettle of fish ......its also a lot heavier than C25

I tried this new fuel here its called VP ROO16 and did a back to back run from VP C14+

The car ran 8.40@161 on C14+ and we went up 4 jet sizes up and the car ran 8.35@162 on ROO16 but after that the car ran all over the place and was very inconsistant ET's compaired to C14+ the weather was very humid and warm and the track was a bit slippery so they really didn't help either...but will try again in cooler weather...
