Traveling with Nitro Fuel?

Post by PimpFloyd »

I'm thinking I'd like to take my RC10 on vacation with me. Should I be concerned about having a half gallon or so of Nitro in the trunk with a bunch of other crap for 3-5 hours, safety-wise??

It's sort of a stupid question but ya never know till you ask :?

If it's not too hot out 3-5 hours shouldn't be too bad, but when it's 107 outside, my new gallon swelled up just in the half hour drive to the track.

LOL!

If it got 107 degrees out up here, I think I would swell up too :lol:

I know I would at least stink a lot :mrgreen:

Thanks Dave!

It's okay, I was concerned about this too but wouldn't have the gull to ask on here. I'm glad you did. It's been 103 here in nor cal for a couple days and I'm trying to break in the NT18 I got at a swap meet a while back. I felt like I had a ticking timebomb in the seat next me.

what i did was i called up a person at the airport and they said i it was a carry one i could not bring it so i put it in a cooler with a couple other things and they let me through. i brought my brothers revo 3.3 in carry one. it wasent in a bag just sitting on the little tray thingy in front of me for the whole 6 hours. So if you put it through lugage they will probily let you through.

what the fuck was that drivel i just shit out?
