    It doesnt like some plastics/rubbers.

    When we used to run grasstrackers (motorbikes), we would also grind the fins off the barrels because it ran so cold. so if you are planning to run it in a road car, a different heater!

    Apart from the jets you'll need larger diameter fuel lines and a crank driven fuel pump. And a friend who drives a tanker delivering the stuff would come in handy.

    ALWAYS.....make sure the fuel lines , and system are empty of Methanol after an event. Use loads of WD40 or similar in the lines and down the bores , otherwise you will have a rust build up on the bores. Speak to someone like Good Vibes Motorsport in California and buy a matched system / tune from them. You wont regret it , Methanol does make more power and its a lot cheaper than race gas. The more of it you buy at once the cheaper it is

    you dont have to run high comp' to run meth, but obviously you wont to get the power out of it, then it helps, but with the cooler running temp your at a gain already. also if the tank is in the back i think you will have to prime the fuel sys' befor fire up.
