Default A new use for headlight sprayers

I have headlight sprayers on my SSEi, but I don't use them. I want to redirect this and use another tank. My idea is to spray some viscous fluid right in front of my tires to be able to burn out on demand. It'* ridiculous, but so is the idea of headlight sprayers. Now, headlight wipers might be cool. I want to work on that too, but all in due time.

Moved to Performance and Brainstorming. This isn't a mechanical issue, so please don't post things like this in the mechanical sections of the Forum.

This isn't Performance either, and I'd have to say it barely qualifies as Brainstorming, but we'll let it ride for now.

Are you aware that the tank is a sinlge chamber? The same fluid reservior serves the windshield and the headlights.

And I doubt that pump would push anything with a thick viscosity.

He'* not after better traction. He'* after ZERO traction.

If you can't do a burnout on demand, there'* something seriously wrong with your car.

Burnouts are not good for the car as a general rule. Start saving for a transmission now.

x2 on the bleach. You can always wire in a spare tank and pump for the purpose pretty easily I'd imagine if you can't get the washer thing to work.

Randomirth - please do not share your ideas out loud.

We have been getting lots of rain and now so did you I guess.

I say more viscosity to all of us.

Easy there Tiger, as the title to this forum states, no idea is stupid.

With the exception of removing your literal front bumper(not the plastic part, the actual front bumper) as a form of weight reduction, now thats just dumb.

Some of the older kids will remember that

Back on topic, Ive personally seen the results of bleachwater, and its more for massive smoke than anything, but it does work.

I agree that you should be able to do burnout on demand anyway. If you want to just sit there and roast them, perhaps a parking brake is in order. But like Will said, any form of burnout is very hard on your tranny.

Well, I can do a burnout on demand, but the point is that having found no use for the headlight sprayers, I tried to think of anything at all. I heard some guy rerouted this to shoot 0W oil out the back, like in action movies.
