I'm surprise you didn't pass out from the fumes. I tried to test run a motor once and it was the first and last time I did that in my house......

I did the same,I put the O.S-v in and I was setting up the starter box and figured what the heck,a few seconds will not hurt .I was wrong ,her face went red and I knew i would be "sleeping "with my car!!!

Just remember ,it may be cold in the garage but not as cold as an angry wife!!!

I've given some of my nitro fuel to my wife to help her remove the press on nails.
As far as burning it in the house... I like my hobby too much to chance it.
Ya, Ya I know, I see the carnage, but it's still race-able. Isn't it?

Sounds to me like you have a death wish, those fumes can kill you in the matter of minutes.

P.S. Don't try this at home kids......

I usually wait until my wife is out of the house before I load the diswasher up with RC parts, hehe.

Although, one concession I did have to make was to switch to water based paints that don't stink the house up to much. Actually, I like working with them better now anyway. I do miss the cheap buzz though, lol.
