Sanding is like hitting your finger with a hammer repeatedly. Because it feels so good when you quit.

I've already exposed myself to an excessive amount of various chemicals over my lifetime (many during my racing days - I sometimes hate to think of what I was inhaling while drafting within a couple inches of another kart given what some people were rumored to be adding to their fuel). I don't feel much need to add to that (well, except for regular doses of ethanol laced drinks )

I know from a former kart racer that some knuckleheads added hydrazine to their fuel for the power increase in "open" fuel classes until it was banned. I definitely would NOT want to breathe that crap. Nitromethane fumes are bad enough.
