Default Parma Speed Scent

hey guys,

I just got a bottle of this Parma speed scent for free from the hobby shop, was woundering whats it like and if i could harm the engine from using it. I have searched around but havent found any info on it? I was thinking of giving it ago just for shi ts and giggles seing as the normal nitro smell gets bad after a while..

Ahh who doesn't love the smell of nitro in the morning? I don't trust those scents at all...

I ran many gallons of fuel with nitro scent. No problems at all.
Cherry, Root Beer and Bubble Gum. It is a novelty type item, but its fine.

Ive run it. I just add a couple of drops to my fuel bottle. It gives off a neat scent and just kinda changes things up.

Its novelty for sure and just for fun. Its meant to go in a motor so it should be alright, I was a little worried but havent noticed a change in performance so its got me thinking its pretty much not changing a thing. Its probably just adding a slight bit more oil to the mixture.

I got root beer and cotton candy. Both smell pretty cool coming out the exhaust.

You know whats funnier. I opened the cap on the stuff and sniffed the root beer (dont suggest doing this). Afterwards I smelt nothing but root beer. Went over to the women and breathed out through my nose and she goes....ROOT BEER.

Im like omg this stuff "is stuck" in my nose. All I did was smell it. Not like some big whiff just a short slow inhale. I smelt cotton candy and it didnt do that. So all I gotta say is that root beer scent is some strong stuff. Dont sniff it unless you want root beer flavor nose.

Nitro Speed Scent is safe to use & it won't affect performance. It is highly concentrated, so you don't need to use that much (1 capful per quart of fuel I believe). They have lots of other cool scents in addition to the ones named above.

Keep in mind: You can use this in any engine that doesn't have a catalytic converter. So it'll work in your lawn mower & weed eater too!

Go to www.parmapse.com for more info.

Have Fun!!

Nitro speed scent is perfectly safe. i ran it in my 1/8th Mugen MRX4 during the airtronics championsihps at revelation. strawberry scent. whenever someone smelled it, they automatically knew it was me.
