Does anyone still run the M-5 racing fuel? Does it work with a carb? Did you make jet changes?
How much ET did you pick up Carb or Injected?

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

Never run it but I was the track photographer when that stuff hit the market and the fumes were nasty. I haven't smelled that stuff in years.

Hey Denis, how have you been? Been a long time since the Burnout Wild Bunch days.

I have 10 gallons of M5 I have been wanting to try in my car to pick up a tenth or so. We have a quick 16 Saturday and I might try it.

Most say that is what it is worth. A tenth. I run Rons injection. Was going to fatten it up a pill size or two to try. Some guys with carbs say fatten 8-10 percent.

I run it with injection, but like anything, if you are currently tuned with max timing, pull 2 degrees, and add 1 back to see if mph picks up. If slows down, add fuel. Like nitro, it allows you to run a touch more timing than methanol. Being honest, i run it because it helps stack tickets better on my car. Mixing 50/50 with methanol gets me 02-03. My converter is loose (6500-6600) so it doesnt pick up as much as when the converter is a little snug.

M5 fumes are nasty stuff. Worse, IMO, than nitromethane. I've used it, found a little ET in the 1/8 (about 3 hundredths-which was exactly what I needed to get into the 5.80 index) and it was consistent. I won't run it again. Door car, headers underneath, the fumes in the car are not worth the .03.
