    The best part about the new "flavor" is that you could easily tell if you ever had an axle seal leaking- all the neighborhood kids would be under the truck taking their turns "tasting" your truck!!!![​IMG]

    I don't know if grape would be my first choice, but ANYTHING is better than the way it normally smells.

    Have you seen (or should I say smelled) the additive to add to the fuel?? A friend of mine runs a "flavor" in his alcohol inj. drag car. Kinda weird till you figure out that he added it to his fuel.

    BTW he runs a Poncho in a Buick body for his drag car. just to be different.

    If you burn up a set of gears, it'll smell like rasins!

    Yeah Summit or Jegs has it, you can get like 8 different "flavors" you add it to the tank so it doesn't have the race fuel smell.....I like that smell[​IMG]
    and until the little trees come in that scent I have to get my fix by going to the track[​IMG][​IMG]

    BTW this is my 1600th post !!![​IMG][​IMG]

    Cam2 I like.......... ALOT [​IMG] Alky burners suck. [​IMG] The smell will make your eyes water, nose burn and make you dizzy pretty kwik. (what I have heard, I havent been around the car while running very much But what little I have been around it, I can beleive it.)

    Is this alcohol? When I go to the drags the alcohol smells really sweet. I havn't stood more than about 20 feet away from one that was running and it wasn't too bad.
    NITRO-METHANE on the other hand. Thats some bad [censored]. You'll see the guys wearing gas masks when they're standing next to one of those. It makes your eyes, nose, throaght, everything burn! It's like tear gas! It's pretty bad man. I'd rather stand next to an alky burning dragster than Nitro Methanol any day!
    And race fuel ... ahhh gotta love that smell.

    Maybe they can market other smells. If they create chocolate I will buy a case....

    I now have this visual of a bunch of kids under a K5 seeing how many licks it takes to get to the center of a 14 bolt!

    LMAO!

    Ahh, you guys are killin' me! I've been rollin' over it from the time I finaly read it. I've emptied bottles of this stuff, and never, not once, thought about smelling it...untill today! Yeah, thats right I ignored the warning (cuz' I live on the edge!) and took a sniff. It really does smell like grapes- kinda.
