Default Nitrous, the power adder of ****

I did a search on nitrous equiped cars (no turbos), and found that there are very few nitrous cars out there.

I wanted to know how many of you are out there, and how fast did you go.

I have been addicted to nitrous for years, and am working on getting the nitrous back on my ride. It's not a ride without that oxide!

IMO the reason why theres not that many cars on spray is because of the fact, youll run out bottle before youll run out of boost!

Nitrous is cool but turbo is WAY better

Use nitrous to spool your big turbo.

For what it's worth Pat got sick of his nitrous setup. Went turbo. Couldn't be happier.

Heres vid of his nitrous setup:

I really like my N/A set up. It is a different kind of look, sound, and ride. With nitrous, it is like you have 2 hot rods.

Do you know if he ran it in at the track? I would love to know how fast he went.

I am sure I will get tired of my setup and eventually build a turbo car. I want to see how far I can go with my N/A.

There are some advantages to running nitrous. It is much easier to launch a nitrous car if equiped with slicks. When the light flashes, hit the button. It seems like it take more practice to get a good reaction time and good 60' time on a turbo car (at least 'grande' drag racing turbo set ups).

Nitrous is not so easy on radials however!

No idea on how fast it went. You'd have to ask him.

I do know that he accidentally pushed the button at idle once and blew his **** to kingdom come. That alone would keep me from going nitrous

Or better yet, engage the launch control, build boost off the line, PROFIT
Might need a new rear end or transmission if you're on slicks though

Yikes. I blew up a few myself. I have learned that people will warn you of the rules that you have to stick to when using nitrous. In the end, it seems you have to learn the hard way.

That is the problem, you have to wait for spool up. Mean while, the other guy with much less power is at the 300' mark whoopin ***.

No worries! That is about all nitrous is good for really; drag racing. It will give you 60' times galore!
