Default Re: just a quickie , an maybe I am nuts

Old timers, hot rodders, used to install a spark plug in the tail pipe of the car. They would shut off the ignition, floor the gas pedal to get a rich mix coming through the exhaust then turn the ignition back on. The spark plug would ignite the fuel mix in the tail pipe and you'd get a bang/flame. The rat rod guys are now using propane and an ignition source such as an igniter or a spark plug. Not a good idea on a 2 stroke. You might get more bang for the buck that you want. Don't try it. I'm serious; you could really hurt yourself or anyone standing nearby.
