Where ethanol uses plant sugars to create its alcohol, methanol primarily uses wood, but it can also be made from carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen. Yeah, it takes more of it to create the usable energy to make your engine run. That not only affects you, but your engine as well — it has less air to use to burn fuel. In that respect, you have to appreciate what the Hoonicorn has become. Methanol requires BTUs joules of energy per pound of fuel. The other risk is that it burns with a flame that is nearly unseen by the human eye.

They then changed out the oil pump that features a larger scavenge pump to remove more crankcase pressure.
We take a closer look at the newest version of the Hoonicorn. By doing so, you can run more cylinder pressure by higher compression or boost pressure and produce more heat in the cylinder because the methanol will cool it down far more than gasoline does. The stoichiometric ratio of air to fuel for gasoline is But only so much can be pulled before things get too lean and cylinder temperatures head towards meltdown.
Alcohol-based fuels burn at cooler temperatures than gasoline does, which is why they are popular with supercharged and high-compression engines, like those you see in drag racing. The mountain tests engines and their tuning harder than any other race in the world. As Larry pointed out in the behind-the-scenes post, unseasonal weather on Pikes Peak brought about another set of challenges for the shoot.
Where ethanol uses plant sugars to create its alcohol, methanol primarily uses wood, but it can also be made from carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen. Methanol requires BTUs joules of energy per pound of fuel. Of course, with such a great advantage there has to be something that makes it not worth using, right?
For gasoline, you need about BTUs British Thermal Units or joules of energy per pound of fuel to change from its liquid state to its vapor state.
In that respect, you have to appreciate what the Hoonicorn has become. The front and rear differentials are also from Sadev and are carryovers from the original build. During dyno and short-run testing of the Hoknicorn RTR V2, the engine worked perfectly and had no issues.
Methanol, also known as methyl alcohol, is an alcohol fuel as its name suggests. That not only affects you, but your engine as well — it has less air to use to burn fuel. Methanol, on the other hand, has a stoichiometric ratio of about 6.

For the Hoonicorn RTR V2, the answer was to hook the turbine outlets straight to the Switzer custom billet intake manifold and cool the air charge with fuel. Interestingly enough, despite the huge jump in power, the drivetrain remains unchanged. The other great thing about them is that each one is a hoonicorm in vehicle performance by the Hoonigan Racing crew. The other risk is that it burns with a flame that is nearly unseen by the human eye.
Or at least in regards to things that could be controlled.
Initially, the team thought this was an engine issue so swapped it out entirely, however the second engine would do the same thing and the reason was finally discovered. By hlonicorn time you reach the top, there is less than 13 percent of effective oxygen to use where normally you have about 20 percent.

Yeah, it takes more of it to create hooniocrn usable energy to make your engine run. For Pikes Peak, the NA setup was just not going to cut it, hence the move to a pair of Honeywell Garrett GTXRS turbochargers that would shove more air into the intake and effectively increase the oxygen content. Being a transmission used in rally cars around the world, it does come with the advantage of having the handbrake hydraulics integrated into the clutch, so when Ken yanks on the custom ASD handle, the clutch gets disengaged without needing to move his left foot.
It was only during the climb up Pikes Peak that things began to head south.
