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 :/
Adding a scent doesn't make nitro exhaust any less harmful. Why would you want to make exhaust easier to inhale?

I didn't say it magically made it wonderful to inhale. I said it makes it less offensive on the nose hairs.

I like nitro and wouldn't switch the electric for anything, but when the wind isn't blowing the exhaust can get pretty bad. I don't mind the smell of nitro, but some fuels are downright horrid. O'donnell is a prime example. Good fuel, but smells really rank when burned. Other fuels aren't as bad but still. A couple bucks and a few drops fixes my nose hair issue, so i'm all for it.

If you like the smell of nitro, then great. More power to ya.

we race indoors in the winter and when i ran the odonnell it was horrible.. So i bought the vanilla parma scent and its great.. pretty cool when it fills up the whole place and it makes it a little less agrivating to run with 12 truggies in side. the vanilla is the strongest out of them all.

You don't seem to understand what I'm saying. If the smell of nitro exhaust is really bothering you for whatever reason, that's a good warning sign. That's your brain telling you that you need more fresh air, or get away from the exhaust pipe, or to wear a respirator. The fumes were never meant to be covered up at all. Please let me know if my reasoning is flawed.

wow i think the fuel should be left alone but if people want it to have a pink paint job and smell like cherrys maybe the fast cars will stay behind it because it smells pretty. But more power to em i might put some in at one random time to get a laugh at the track when someone walks by and says whats the smell someone wearing perfume!!!

what a stupid invention. I got better things to waste my money on than some crap to change the smell of my exhaust fumes. Hell I dont drink flavoring to change the way my fart smells. Why would I care about the way my buggy smells? Nor would anyone else at the track care.

I'm not tring to be an @$$ but I don't think he cares if we like to use it or not. He just wants to know if the nitro scent would do any damage to the .21 engines. I've never had a problem with my engines. My opinion go ahead and get it. Nothing bad will happen to your engine.

That stuff is not very useful for cars. Too little fuel used.

If you run a big saito/os 4 stroke on an airplane with the scent, you can make the whole field smelling like food.

All your doing is adding a bit of oil to your fuel, it will not harm your engine.
