WOW:eek: If my engine blew up like that, I think I'd react a little bit differently!

You guys think they'll warranty that? :D

I know a lot of 19 yr olds that wouldn't even think of doing something stupid like that! That guy was just a moron. That's quite a car to just carelessly blow up on a 1/4 mile run, but, like the guy said many times in that video, "Oh WELL!"

That car wasnt carelessly blown up, he had been running it for weeks on the same setup.. it just finally gave.

"finally gave" huh? Call it what you will, but just because a set up was working for 'weeks' on end prior to ultimate detonation doesn't necessarily deem it careful especially if it is in fact a 300 NOS shot on an unbuilt 3.5. I wish I had a sponsor supporting me to anticipate a total motor blowout, it would make R&D so much easier. Whatever works I guess...

I agree that this was just an accident waiting to happen... And if anything, it seemed like a bit of a publicity stunt if you ask me! If the kid wanted power, whey not go with a Procharger (Supercharger), and then couple that with a SMALLER shot of NAWSS???? And as was said before, why did he not build his engine to withstand the power it would be putting out??? Seems like a pissing away of his sponsor's money if you ask me..

but then again, he did prove something...... You can strap a huge shot of NAWSS to ANYTHING and go fast.....

I bet a Ford ZX2 will perform almost as well with a 400 Shot of the 'go juice':D

There was a website that advertised.....


"RUN AS MUCH NOS AS YOU WANT AND NEVER BLOW UP YOUR CAR"


This ad was actually true, it turned out to be a bucnh of guys RENTING a Base modle Dodge Neon (NOT your car) And hooking up a Cheapo NOS kit. The cut a hole in the intake manifold to insert the jet, filled up the washer resoviour with extra fuel and used a cheapo NAPA fuel pump to pump it ($20) and then just put the NAWZZZZ tank in the back seat seatbelted in and hooked up the switch to the horn button.


Towards the end the were running a 150 SHOT with only 5% extra fuel (VERY VERY FING LEAN) and turned a 13.2.

They were dusting Vettes and Mustangs in this burgundy POS Neon, never blew either, and then returned the car later that day.


The funniest thing was the reverse Nitrous donuts.
