I have heard that ol' Billy was not above tipping the nitro bottle up to 25% at times. Makes me wonder how many Fox engines he went through in a season. Coffee

In his USA-1 article he said he had K&B 45s running on as much as 45% Nitro fuel.  Wouldn't want that raw gas getting on the plane.

Hi Bob

Yes it was either 1974 or1975 I was there along with Ron Farmer, The plane was the "chainsaw fox" Ares  :-).  It was hard to believe the motor hung in there, I think Bill also was running  20 to 25% nitro as it had a unique smell too when flying.

Yep he had his design Gypsy powered by an OS 35S, I don't remember it being overweight, but he was very very weight conscious then
