    NHRA Funny cars do NOT use Nitrous Oxide. They use Nitromethane and methanol.

    NHRA Pro Classes (Pro Stock, Pro Stock Truck, Pro Stock Bike) do not use Nitromethane. These are normally aspirated engines running on carbs and gasoline. They have CID limits and weight limits. Vehicles must gauge to a template as well if I remember correctly.

    Sportsman classes in NHRA do use Nitrous oxide.

    IHRA is a different story. This is where you see "garden hose" nitrous systems, normally aspirated engines running on Nitro Meth and all sorts of other sick and demented ways of shoving horsepower down a butterfly's throat.

    Nitromethane is different from Nitrous oxide. It is an accelerant where's nitrous is an oxidizer and "density intensifier" (my little fancy term).

    Chemistry and physics are a bit different between the two.

    What they do share in common is that they both deliver chemical oxygen to the combustion chamber.

    N02 is 33% by volume
    Nitrometh is about 56% by volume

    If you ever watch top fuel, you'll notice that the car is started on one fuel and then switched to another. Nitro meth is so violent that if you attempt to start the vehicle with it, it'll more than likely "sneeze" the blower.

    You start a nitro engine on alky, then gradually introduce the good stuff before making a pass. You'll see this on TV because the exhaust tone will become very distinctive when the fuel system makes the transition.

    Not trying to be a dick, just being "edumacational"

    I just got new Heads and the clutch is on it's way. I learned a shortcut to York. I'll be up there soon. Too bad I'm in the middle of nowhere without a lift.
    I'm shooting for September timeframe.

    Good to know man. They want their optimal race now that I'm a stalled auto car. You know the deal.

    Hey...or maybe he can just go from the dig, or we'll just keep things the way they are, I'll click one down into 2nd and hit the spray.

    Anyway..this race isn't going to happen for a while down. Something happend inside the motor...dunno if it's a bearing or what.

    Yea...I've smacked on it a grand total of 5 times. Twice at the track, 3 times around town. It's got less than 1500 miles on it. Followed the proper break in recommendations,etc. We're in the process of finding out what went wrong and going from there. I'm still hoping it's the flexplate that broke but who knows.

    Dang man, hate to hear that. Hopefully it is not in the motor. A bearing, damn, that ain't a simple fix. Sounds costly.
