airplane fuel is made to run with less oxygen and has more oil, you only want to run surface nitro fuel for your car.

Gasoline has too low an octane rating so detonation would be a huge problem. It would make less power. Also, it would probably destroy all the seals in the engine. Seals for gas and alcohol are made from different materials.

i did some research on nitro engines using gasoline few years back. need to mod something and add some electrical timing jargon and maybe some fuel regulator to make it happen.
