    Default Anyone use a respirator when running nitro?

    I know, I know.....Convert it to electric blah,blah,blah...

    Point being I picked up one last week for a couple reasons. #1 I am going to an indoor race next weekend and ventilation has been an issue in the past. I am only going to watch this year but have pitted in the past. It is nasty.

    #2. I will run up some stuff at my house and sometimes there is low air flow. Breaking in engines or just running stuff up.

    I ran my truggy up last weekend to make a couple settings and see how it runs. Wore the mask and what a difference.

    No worries I have a raincoat. Post up your thoughts.

    Nitro fumes smell like sausages on the BBQ.

    Some funny posts....

    I did not run any nitro last year as I had some fun with my electric rig.

    This summer I am focusing on nitro and my electric is when I have time.

    If you do wear a respirator,you should get a lord helmet mask with the suit,that would be sweet.You could get one of them battery operated fans and clip it on your hat or something.It would help a keep ya cool while racing and give you fresh air somewhat.

    I'm a mechanic and I'm the only one out of 10 other guys in the shop that has one. I wear it pretty often, even when someone across the shop is grinding on something. I have a very bright LED Flashlight, and you would be surprised at all the junk you can see floating in the air when I shine it in the shop. I am mostly concerned with airborne particles like asbestos, rust, and fibers but if it helps filter out small molecules of fuel, cleaners, etc.. fumes in the air then it's worth it too! I understand that we are all going to die someday, but every little bit you can do to protect your health is important. Glad to hear you are thinking smart

    If running nitro indoors then yes I probably would wear one, but I have never done such a thing! If running nitro outside I just try to avoid the fumes and don't bother with any protection.

    Lambert would like this one .

    Chad Bradley came up and raced 'Tillsonburg' running an Ofna truggy X2 RTR back in '09.

    My friend took the vid of it.

    This is our season kick-off for racing. Sure we have some indoor tracks but this is the kicker...

    Old footage from 1999. You get the pic.

    Good thing it only causes cancer in California! (* known to the state of California to cause cancer and harmful birth defects) Say, Rob, when have we ever known birth defects to be unharmful? :-)

    This is the kicker for the year but is only annual. Basically the organizers rent it for a week. The building. The dirt is in the building and track starts to be made I think on tuesday... By friday practice starts.. New PA system for this event. Factor in driver stand... Tons of work for 1 race weekend. For this year there is going to be 4 big fans to move air out of the building.

    Wow, after looking at that video I would say that you should bring the respirator just in case...But since you did say they are having fans this year to move air out, it might not be so bad.
