A carb can seep alcohol into the combustion chambers in or on the trailer on the ride home.

I have ran alcohol for 15 plus years and have not had an issue like this , not saying it couldn't happen because it could there are just certain things you do when running methanol. I would not let the fear of corrosion change my mind on running methanol there are simply way to many advantages to running methanol in a bracket racing application that is why methanol is the dominate fuel at big money and weekly bracket races.
Probly doesn't hurt that it's substantially cheaper either. I'll stick with Q16 at least I know what to expect.

Big Time money races...?

Top Fuel Dragster = nitromethane
Funny Car = nitromethane
Pro Stock = gasoline
Pro Stock Motorcycle = gasoline
Indy racing League = Ethanol
Nextel Cup = Unleaded Gasoline
Endurance Sports Car Road Racing = gasoline
Unlimited Hydroplane Racing = gasoline & kerosene
Air Racing = gasoline
F1 = gasoline

Are there any larger series big money races than those...?
I don't see ANY methanol except maybe 3% or so that they mix with the nitro.

Ten-Tuck races aren't even near the same class of "Big Money" races.

The sport of drag racing has survived because of bracket racing. The bracket racers are the customers that buy the parts , most are not given the parts or the money to buy parts by sponsors like the professional categories .

And mr Malik I am not fuel biased and I have no problem admitting the fastes dragsters on the planet run on a mixture of nitromethane and methanol and are injected. The majority of bracket racers power their cars with methanol and nation wide there is more revenue won in bracket racing.

I run a tenn tuck or 2 mr Lem afro Shocked

nation wide revenue for bracket racers is higher . I don't think so , think there is more oval track sportsman racers . gate money , drags don't even come close

not what this thread is about ...$$$$

Have I mentioned anything other than drag racing ? Let me make myself clear I am talking about the fuel used in drag cars . I wouldn't give 2 frog fat asses for every circle track car there is in the world and the only ones I am interested in watching are winged sprint cars

I know it's not what the thread is about I let my self get drug out by the dyno gaz nazzi lol!

J.Y. seems you want me to go to a tenn-tuck race....it'd be like watching five five-hundred mile nascar races back to back with the special feature of letting anyone that had a stock car and the entry fee run.
Let's say 197 cars show up for the D.D.S. race and all are allowed to race regardless of e.t. What would that do to the show? I suspect it'd suck regardless of what fuel is in the tank.

Think methanol and fuel cell surveys don't worry about how many are there all we need to know is the % that has methanol in the cell. Very Happy

100 is the percentage of racers that won the Jeg's quick championship the last two years with Q16 in the fuel cell. BBF they were.

He or you can send me all you want we are talkin about methanol and fuel cells and how many don't have gas in them at a teen tuck race Very Happy

You will never change the fact that methanol is the most popular bracket racing fuel used no matter how much spin you put on it cheers

It's a matter of ...do you want to be popular or win?

I suspect it's past your nap time.

How many heads up guys use methanol? ADRL, Outlaw 10.5, X275, etc, etc, etc? My guess would be not many. Alcohol displaces so much volume that when you get to certain point it's hard to get enough air in the cylinder. For example if you took a 1 gallon bucket and put 32 ounces of gas in it you would need 64 ounces of alcholol to supply the same volume of air making you lose the air capacity left in that bucket. Engines are self powered air pumps, not self powered liquid pumps, but that's a whole different conversation altogether. I'm sure methanol is very popular with the bracket crowd since it addresses two thing that are very important to them, cost, and cool operating temperature which helps with consistency and the fact that a lot of those races basically go round robin in the later rounds, however those two factors aren't nearly as important to heads up guys with mandatory cool down time between rounds. Just my opinion.
