Gotta give him credit for trying. I didn't think a Holley would flow enough for nitro. I hope he gets it to work, kind of interesting. Ray.

Hell I ran 60% nitro through a power washer, thats a true in the tank #. Its the getting it to rev under a true load that hes probably never gonna figure out. And that gas can drip is not what I would consider a 75% mix. Once I got the briggs to rev it was about 30 seconds into it that it melted a hole in the piston and burnt a groove in the valve.

He's a moron if he thinks he'll make a small block run on 99%, especially considering fuel cars couldn't hold 99%..

Don't kid yourself on that number - in the 80's Beadle would on occasion run a flat 100% in the Blue Max. It can be done.

I didn't say people haven't run it, everyone tried before NHRA limited the fuel because everyone was trashing so much stuff.

What I'm saying is if a heavy top fuel engine has a hard time keepin it together on 100%, a plain jane small block doesn't stand a chance...

I was under the impression that 100% will not light off?

You can mix 75% but you have to increase everything to be able to flow that much and be able to burn it.

The gas can has gas in it to warm it up, I've got the nitro in the cell in the trunk.
It does need a few more tweaks but I'm working on it.

He is also a guy who makes his living wrenching on nitro powered drag cars, so hes pretty well addicted to the stuff.
