Ok, how many people are using nitrogen in their tires. Is it worth it?

I just run bleeder valves set to my pressures and don't worry about using normal air.

Chemical properties lesson: Nitrogen and Normal air (25% oxygen 75%nitrogen) are both "dry gases" By this dry gases are not relative to temperature change. This doesn't make the air expand or compress!! It's the water particles mixed with the air that expands and contracts. Nitrogen with water in it will do the same thing as it will with any other dry gases. Overall Nitrogen seems to work better in racing but will still swell 2 or 3 pound during a feature. 14 dollars a bottle and you can pipe your air wrench to it also. Lasts longer than you think.
