Brad - Snellerized Saws
Have a 201T that doesn't run like you expected? Need a new one that's already modded and ready to go? PM me for details.
If you're that concerned about 'excess octane' of race gas, but don't have any other non-ethanol gas nearby, you can lower the effective octane level of said race gas by adding a quantity of Coleman camp fuel. The octane level of camp fuel is about 55. By doing a little math, you can easily figure out how much to add to get to a target octane level. For example:
Adding one quart of camp fuel to a gallon of 110 race gas will give you five total quarts of approximatley 96 octane fuel. Camp fuel won't hurt anything in your saw, and contains no ethanol. Costs about $10/gallon, but you're only using a quarter of that per five quarts of total fuel...
I'm curious about peoples fascination with castor-based two stroke oils. They were the deal back before current generation semi-synthetic and full synthetic oils came out, but they don't perform to the same level as moderl oils. Nobody at the local pro go-kart track uses castor oils, and none of the two stroke MX guys run it either.
If you just like the smell, get some of the scented additives that some snowmobile guys/girls run in their sleds. You can have bubblegum-scent if you want :-)

And yes some of my saws do have over 200 PSI.
You know if you can't read you should not comment.

LMAO... race gas in saws...

Think I will just keep running my regular pump gas in my saws. They seem to get along with it pretty well and it only costs me $2.50 a gallon, plus oil. What did the race gas cost you? I have not looked in years but it used to be around $5 a gallon when regular fuel was only $1-$1.50 a gallon, now that is around my area. For the ones who are in my area, I am speaking of the Clipper Mart on Williamson Rd in Roanoke. Now that I am in Rocky Mount there is little local owned store on 220 called The One Stop Shop that sales the Cam 2 race fuel.
