Due to the constant on off throttle applications when drifting, how would a gas setup go? Would it tend to backfire? or is that upto the tune?

cheers guys

should be 100% fine, back firing is usually caused by lean mixture or bad spark.
i don't think on/off throttle like that would cause it to backfire.

only backfires I've ever had (mines not turbo) if from bad smark plugs or leads or mixture/tuning. Never been from thrashing the car around.

i looked into the same thing, i wanted to setup a XF turbo gas setup, only to be told, that race tracks don't like LPG tanks, i spoke to winton and calder and they said the same thing, no LPG tanks. so you might want to look into this.. just a thought.

I was at the Winton Fun Day (maybe different rules on Fun Days) and my cars on LPG, they had nothing to say about it, they just checked i had the sticker on the number plate.

The ruling is:

we allow LPG at Fun Days as we aonly allow "80%" driving.

LPG is not allowed at other meeting unless the tank is approved for racing, now don't ask me what that means as I don't know.

Sorry guys, but it is for safety reasons. As far as finding out some information, try CAMS

edit; I found this on a Drifting Bulletin from CAMS

Quote:
24.1 Commercial Fuel
a) Commercial Fuel: A fuel produced by an oil company for sale in the Australian general
transport fuel market. Such a fuel must comply fully with the Fuel Standard (Petrol)
Determination 2001, including amendments as made under the Federal Government Fuel
Quality Standards Act 2000.
Competitors are reminded that certain “Commercial Fuelsâ€￾ as defined by CAMS are not
legal for Road Use, and their use may render the competitor liable to penalties under civil
legislation.
b) Liquefied Petroleum Gas: The fuel must be a commercial LPG being a mixture of Butane
and Propane, of a type which is dispensed from a service station pump. Where a vehicle
utilises LPG, a sign in the form of the white letters LPG on a red reflective background, as
per drawing G-1 must be placed immediately to the left and centralised vertically to all
competition numbers.

So providing it's displayed that the car is LPG it's all cool?? does this count for winton VICDrift days?? i have talked to someone, but not sure who.

Didnt a couple of XR 6's run at bathurst on LPG a few years back. I think they had quick remove tanks for faster fills.
