Question combustibel

Hy to all here,
I have a doubt, that i hope some one can tell me something about it, that is this; im making a mix of gasoline, 2 strokes oil, and ethanol(ethilic alcohol 96% volume) for a nitro engine! My doubt is about the ethilic alcohol of 96% V., does he(the ethanol 96 V.) do the job, that its making the engine run?! Isnt new, so i dont have problems, if he gets destroyed in the process...but i hope not );-)).Hoping for a reply or two & all the best to all here,

Ummmmmm, that all sounds really bad. I wouldn't even dare try gasoline in a nitro motor. Not sure if it could even run for starters but if the glowplug happens to get some fuel on it, it might not be good. The only people I know have accomplished such a task as of yet have been HPI and LOSI and they're fairly new. Also a company way back when name compagnucci or something like that. I wouldn't try it.
