I've probably brought around the stupidest ideas the hobby has ever seen, but why stop now? I'm gonna need something to spend my Christmas money on. :ofnabuggy:

So after a while of researching model diesel engines and full-scale diesel engines, the following idea inevitably came to mind: What about a true diesel-injected model?

What if I used some kind of EFI along with a small injector, screwed into a nitro engine's head instead of the glow plug, and somehow increased the compression on it? Would regular nitro fuel work, maybe mixed with ether like model diesel fuel? Would I need extra bolts to keep the head from shooting off from the compression? Would pinching the sleeve help create extra compression that could ignite the fuel? What are your insights of such an experiment?
