And Bob, if you had been paying attention, you'd have seen the Bullet and I topping off from a can of fuel. That was a Toluene mix, although I probably didn't use enough to raise my octane more than 93.
Sounds like the master has a plan for mod day next year. Good to know.

As far as paying attention, who knows what I was doing? I did run a few errands for the good of the group and the rest of the time I must have been in a daze...lol

Well, next year I'll pay attention when you guys a whippin' up a new batch.

I was running about 97 octane at the track two Saturdays back (7-9 gallons of 92 and 1-1/2 toulene works out to 97 -IIRC).
The car was feeling stronger with every run, but traction was what was holding me back. By the time we got 5-10 miles from the track the car felt extremely strong and if I could have had it running like that at the track with a decent launch I'm sure it'd have set me in the 14.7'* -not bad for a Series 1 with only a 180*, CAI, and Cat and (80 lbs of wieght loss).
