A few gallons of c16 and a new o2 sensor would have been much cheaper than an alchy kit.

C16 will slow a car about 2 tenths on 25 PSI and lower. Scoob already tested it. We used C12.

Absolutely!

throw in the price of race gas and the cost of o2 sensors, and the alky kit gets cheap fast!

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

I thought we were just testing.
$20 for an o2 and another $20 for a couple gallons of c16 once for the test or $500 for the alchy kit. Seemed cheaper for the test.

The alky kit was a future investment anyway, it made no sense to search for race gas in the area for testing...
