Posted:Has anybody else been spinning at altitude?? I am living in La Paz at the moment...which is at about 3500m....and the problem is that there is not so much oxygen at this altitude...and I have tried spinning with some fuel here...as soon as I have any speed the flame goes out...due to lack of oxygen I assume...
so the question is, has anybody else tried this at altidue, and if so what sort of fuel were you using. I have never used white spirit or petrol (gasoline) but I am wondering if with there being less oxygen around to make these things burn, what happens to flash points etc??? Should I try a mix of kerosene (lamp oil) and something a whole lot more flammable to see what happens??
Or should I try pure white spirit??
I am going to experiment, but any help greatly appreciated!!
