Race fuels - Does the XRT benefit on the strip and Dyno?
I raced motocross for 15 years before i got too old, sold my race bike and started getting into my XRT.
Dad and I always re-jetted our carbs to run on high-octane race fuels (ELF / VP C-12) for super crisp throttle response/superb engine protection and a significant horsepower increase.
Even when a ban on leaded fuels was enforced in 2000, MX bikes were and are still able to produce decent power on lower octane unleaded's such as ELF BFK-09 (98 Octane Low Emission Motorsport Fuel)
What I'm asking is....do good race fuels help with Kw and drag times in a modern EFI engine like the XRT's or are they an expensive waste of time?
I also understand that I have a 'race-fuel' tune to use with my Ford Flasher....what fuels are suggested?
I know that fuel like Mobil Synergy and Caltex Vortex premium unleaded are the best quality stuff you can get from a servo,
but it's shite compared to the surplus, fresh race fuel I still have stored here and don't wanna put it to waste. I'd only be running it at the drags...and the stuff i have is Unleaded and EPA legal.
Can't seem to get a clear response on this one...Suggestions?
