    Question Was He Spraying or Not ?



    This was my last time out at the Palm Beach International Raceway for summer 2012.

    I held on midway of the track then all of a sudden he just started pulling away. While I was behind him I rolled down my windows and the stentch smell from that mustang almost turned my stomach.

    The smell was very strong couldnt make it out but it was not just race gas being burned.

    Was He Spraying or Not ?

    Looked like he had the HP advantage for the jump. You probably smelt race gas.

    Nitrous doesn't smell any different. It's just Oxygen and Nitrogen compressed in a liquid form. There's a tiny bit of sulfur in it to keep you from huffing it but it's in the ppm range.

    Just looked like you had more bottom end torque & he had more top end horsepower. What were the times?

    You would know if he was on a bottle because he would purge before the start, everyone with nitrous purges..

    LOL, how old is this video? Why are you just now posting it up? This seems like part of a Renntech marketing campaign.

    The vid was recorded in June 2012. I was going through videos that I never used and decided to use this particular vid for Nitto NT 555 street tires vs DR's. I have always doubted if the dude driving the stang was spraying or not and decided to post it to see what others think. This has nothing to do with RENNtech.
