Widerman and Allmachtige has NOS currently on their cars.

Mach and Wider are both running dry shots of silly gas. With any normal aspirated engine, if NOS is desired, go dry shot. If you are Supercharged, wet shot is recommended. Bear in mind, NOS should be one of the last mods to a well modded engine IMO

!!! That'* almost 3000 miles a year or so!! I gotta see it!!

I'm always cautious of the nitro route. At one time it was tempting, but then 3 cars in town toasted their engines with it. That made me swear off the bottle. Be prepared for anything with the laughing gas.

Until I read this part of your post I was thinking there are going to be a lot of messed up engines popping up in the next few days. But then I read that, that made it a little better. But you know some idiot will probably do it anyways.


Now, my opinion on nitrous. Unless you have $$$ to spend repairing the many things you could mess up really bad, I wouldn't go that route. I would rather spend that money ahead of time on permanent mods that I don't have to keep refilling. Just my opinion. You can get plenty fast without it.

OK. Then put some in your spark plugs holes and see for yourself. Then maybe you will understand. I think you would be suprised.

Lemme guess you know all about this cause you've done it before. That stuff is just gonna burn up before you could even get anywhere to do anything, anything besides blow ****.. While i'm out driving my car with GAS being injected (with some injector cleaner this tank) you just keep thinking about what those mad explosions will do to it.

What I am saying is it is going to "blow ****" as you say. It isn't going to help your performance at all, that is now what we meant. We are saying it is going to mess things up pretty bad. But if you sprayed enough in each cylinder (1/2 oz or so) as soon as the cylinder got spark on the start up, BOOM. New pistons for you.
