I should really kill it after 5. I have ran it for 4 runs now and them lasting 10 seconds on average. I have it surrounded by 1/4" lexan and a fire extinguisher. I just took video of it in class I'll put it up as soon as I figure it out. The room I was also doing it in has a pretty cold ambient temp...

VNT turbos

It worked. The 7/16th hole did the trick. I put a teaspoon of methanol in and shook it . It made the sound when I released my thumb. Wiped the lid and screwed it on good. Lit it and she ran for 15-20 seconds. My classmates were astounded as much as I was. I cant wait to build my pipewood.

On occasion I will mow a grapefruit or some low lying leaves of my orange tree. This has the same effect, it's a pleasant scent. Of course I am w...
