What meaningful difference could a 3.5 cc engine do to the environment!??!? Surely this is a prank!

Either way, this is one of the cool thing about living here hahahaha, NO RULES!!!

You cant be serious about the no rules... I race at several tracks where you can't fire up the cars until 8am at one track and 9am at the other. There are rules I just hope they don become too strict. I could make some obtuse refrence to osama umm I mean Obama but I prob should leave it at that.

And dreaux I was just razzing you a little.

It will happen, there is no way around it.

Every club that failed around here was nitro based, struggeling club's are nitro...

When its race at the local track the cops come everytime... to loud...

Believe it, Nitro will be no more sooner then later.
Maybe over there but not here sorry bout your bad luck. Cops come out or as they call them somewhere BOBBYS

And that is apperently a key factor to many nitro guys.

if the tracks where in the middle of nowhere the whole discussion would not excist, but around here they are in populated areas and people dont like listening to screaming engines when they relax in their backyard...

So, either track need really good sound barriers or Nitro will be banned.
Why would a dummy build a nitro track in populated areas in the first place, just by doing that your setting up for failure. They arnt that loud, no louder than these teenagers in those accords with the gay muffler making them sound like a loud weedeater LOL. Sounds like they have issues overseas

Of course there are rules , but over here they're not enforced as strictly as in other places... My partner and I own "The Courtyard" which is the biggest track here in Dominican Republic, and we designed everything according to ROAR and IFMAR standards, and are trying to get into a block for organizing international events. This country has LOTS to offer, and tourists are treated like royalty!

I'll be posting some pictures as soon as I can get some air shots of the track.

In belgium tracks may not be build in a industrial area.

and in no mans land neither, that is forest and there isn't much of that stuff here so you cant even go in the forest with a 4x4...

All large two stroke engines will go first; and that actually has started in some places. You'll notice weed eaters,leaf blowers, dirt bikes, riding mowers, etc and similar items have started making 4 stroke versions; this will slowly continue. Our nitro fuel is made from mostly propane (nitromethane) and natural gas (Methanol) and oils (castor or synthetic). Our fuel is safer than gasoline, as far as the environment is concerned....so, I think we have more to fear from noise pollution, fewer new tracks, and fuel prices than we do being forced to electric. But, its all done in an effort to get the money generated by taxing the items which emit harmful compounds. These gov groups have to continue to put pressure on anything that has big emissions....which our hobby doesnt. We'll see the bigger emitters like the items I listed above go way before our little group of products are over regulated......I hope.....

NHRA Drag cars Burn 250$ worth of Nitro Per Run down the 1/4.......a family car could travel roughly 2250km on what the Big boys piss out in a 4 second run down the 1/4mile.

Times that X4 like they were doing this past weekend at the Race in Charlotte and that's 10,000km worth of gas a regular old car could do while its consumed in a combined time of 16sec+/-

If it didn't cost so much to fly there I'd come for a race. I'm all for visiting new (to me) countries. I hope the track does well.

It's actually about 2.5 times that amount per run!

Nitromethane/methanol in a four stroke is virtually harmless. Add in Castor oil for a two stroke that sterilizes ground soil, now there's a problem.
