I think it is about gasoline type of motors (Carbone monoxide emission)-our motors methanol type of fuel (except 1/5 scale) graded as clean emmision engines (no Carbon Monoxide emmissed) and I think we are not in danger at all.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methanol

I agree with u 100%. If that were the case, the full scale racing would b in danger as well. Correct me if im wrong.

Thumbs down

The EPA vendetta is summed up in two words...."two stroke". Makes no difference what fuel you are running, it's the 2 stroke engine design they wish to eliminate. By it's very nature, a 2 stroke is much more "dirty" than a 4 stroke. Much fuel passes thru the engine unburned which leads to HC emissions (gasoline) or so called greenhouse gases (methanol). What chaps me is the grossly over-inflated effect of small engine contributions to air quality. No matter to the EPA, a .00045 % improvement in air quality even if it cost consumers 5 billion dollars is nothing to them.
