That smell you like is castor oil not nitro.

Personally i find the smell of nitro to be somewhat offensive. It stings my nose hairs. Using an additive to make it smell better is good imo. If it doesn't change the tune and doesn't gum up the engine then i'm fine with it. Its cheap and it helps the fuel smell less offensive, i'm all for it. I have only seen it at one hobby shop and bought a bottle to try out, i must say i was pleasantly suprised. I haven't been using it lately but will probably go back to using it here soon. I was hoping the smoke would get the mosquitoes away, but they don't seem to mind it :/

I hope all you scent lovers have nice big flowers painted on your bodies too... This is NITRO racing - sounds like EP would be better for some of you...

Are you so insecure about yourself that you need to post these stupid remarks ?
