It's called going real fast on a limited budget.
When the tune was wrong it stayed together for less than 8.60

When the nitrous tune up was right,,, it ran and ran and ran and went like hell.

Once the tune up was right, tear down insepection revealed no stress evidence.
Everything looked pristene and stayed that way. Routine race motor maintenance is required just like you would do to maintain any race motor.
Durability was and is not a problem.

As far as I know this motor is still going. It was sold and we lost track of it.

This motor ran on Methanol,, with race gas on the nitrous side.
We could not make methanol work on the nitrous side. (there are reasons for that)
this was a simple off the shelf single stage direct port Race nitrous system with just a timing retard and a delay box
to control activation time delay on launch.

My nitrous motors were all gasoline. race gas when over 300hp shot. I recomend race gas for anything over 180hp.
