We are using rust inhibitors in paint formulation and I was thinking of using some in my fuel. Will make some tests and see how it works.
Anti-Rust inhibitors??? don't know... but after getting mine engines completely dry, some drops of ATF oil is what I've found that works best (Very thin -10wt-), gets on the metal making a little film that protect valuable parts from the nasty reactions of Methanol and Nitro with moisture on the air.

Just pour some drops and do some bumps on your starter box to get the oil distributed.

Alfonso,

anti-inhibitors is a double negative

We put this stuff in waterbased paint to keep the containers and substrates from rusting.

It also builds a film on metal.

I will try it out on an old engine and see what it does...

Dennis,

I'm not doing any anodizing anymore.

First, I have two small kiddos and I didn't feel too comfortable with all the chemicals in my garage.

Second, I got so swamped that I barely had time to race anymore.

Sorry but I got rid of all the stuff.

Lastely, I'm into modifying engines now, just for myself

Well, all of the racers who were using 25% nitro tornado fuel got their engines overheat, ran more than 260F (130C). So, I was thinking to get 16% as the Novarrosi manual suggested.

More nitro percentage more heat ? Unless one's running Lola.

I dont think so... if u using 16% to gain the same performance with 25% (same plug and others factor) you need leaner mixture therefore your engine will run hotter.

Better fuel economy... ??? maybe (im not sure)

then that will be for .12 engines... i was talking about .21!
i only got my engine in the 120C range in Italy when it was more than 40C in the shadow!!

i never had/have overheating problems

Well, maybe we should start using temp gun as a guide and STOP worrying too much about the temp readings..as long as there's smoke coming out of the pipe at every corner, then the egine should be OK.

AMEN!

Just talk to any reputable motor manufacturer, tuner or whatever with a grasp doing carb adjustments and will tell you that tying to a fixed temperature across many engines is a nonsense... some will love to run at 120C, others at 150C. The most important thing is to keep a small but noticeable smoke trail and a happy & stable idle when hot.

Many people fail to adjust correctly a low-end needle, and is VITAL for the correct cooling of your engine when off-throttle. Just a quick tip, many people doesn't bother to read pages who talk about a good carb adjustment.

When the engine is at operating temp (and this means, with the main chassis soaked of temperature, not cold or cool) - sic Ron Paris -.

Do a full pull of the throttle with the wheels off the ground, engine should rev-down and stabilizate their speed on the next three seconds. This is a almost perfect low-end adjustment. Fail to do this and you are risking with a too lean low-end needle (very usual to see).

Cors-R is absolutly right-tuning engine by temperature is realy nonsence. Engine will pick up temperature by itself if we tunned it right ( all over the band). Just look the performace and it will tell you everything.

Team Serpent in Europe are using a new fuel. Cant remember the name of hand but it is around $100 per gallon. It really does seem to be really good stuff. Uses dome weird chemicals for coolant purposes.

I think it is mentioned on the mytsn site somewhere.
