Default Nitro Scent in fuel Question

Can i use nitro scent fuel on my Ninja jx.21 and on my Werks B6 engine? I run 30% Byron fuel. The Nitro smell doesnt bother me but i just like the way nitro scent Smell when they pass by you. Would it do anything bad to my engines?

Fuel tank is for fuel

I have never seen anyone with problems, but I feel like whenever you put a non-fuel product into the fuel tank, it will just increase the chances of stuff getting gummed up.

Back when Parma first came out with the nitro scents we ran them for years with no harm to the engines at all . Can`t speak for any other brands though .

I have been using the Sumo Racing scent for a while and I have never have issues. It makes the nitro fumes of certain fuels a little more tollerable.... I know the owner of Sumo Racing has been using it for years and his engines always run excellent!!

how strong does it smell, can you smell it really good or does it just linger around the nitro from others?

I actually like the small. It takes the "edge" off the smell of most Nitro fuel. If you put the right amount in there....the Root Beer smells pretty darn good. 4WD Soda Fountain. WOO WOO! People always look around to figure out what smells like Root Beer. haha

I prefer the smell of the nitro. The additives stink in my opinion. There's nothing like showing up to the track after being away for a couple weeks and smelling that first nitro fire up.
