dont pay attention to us man we just having a r/c withdraw no nitro smell can make you cranky .

if you have breathing problems go ahead and wear one outdoors when racing if its dusty its up to you.

Make sure you turn on spell checker too, idiot.
I havent the need, nor the desire to spell everything 100% correctly, and i post alot from my phone, too tedious and time consuming..the point gets across.

that BS aside, you seem like a panzy too! if conditions are that bad where you guys are, maybe you need to tell your track owner/caretaker, to WATER the damn track....

Big boy car eh? lucky me, i have quite a few full scale cars that are built/enjoyed/raced...

It can't hurt right? I see no issue with wearing a dust mask, or a respirator for nitro fumes.

Even if there are no harmful long term effects, it sucks breathing in nitro fumes and dust.

For example - I wear a respirator when using non-toxic water based airbrush paints. Will they hurt me if I inhale? Probably not. Do I like having blue paint dust inside my nose? No. Blue metallic pearl colored snot can't be good.

As far as being a sissy - this from the dude with the purple wheelie machine (2wd electric no less....yea lots of dust there....) Plus, WTF - I hate to break it to you, we race toy cars??? I don't think this hobby can be argued as "hardcore".... give it a rest and just have fun.

You've made your point, go back to the electric forums.

FYI 3M disposable masks do not preven vapors from entering your body. Dust yes vapor no, it take a differnt sort of mask and cartridge.

I would have to say that nitro fumes indoors would have to be harmful to the human body in some form. Alot of cancer causing agents. I guess time will tell if we all get sick or not.
What I find funny is the simple fact that you can't smoke in these indoor buildings but you can consume all the burnt nitro you want ......
I don't smoke so that rule doesn't apply to me but I certainly find it amusing.

Well I don't think there is a definitive answer to whether or not nitro fumes will hurt you, but here is the MSDS sheet for nitromethane
