We're challenging you to do it more than just plain hating on you. At least I am anyhow. So don't get your panties in a bunch
So was I, but that didn't stop him from getting his **** all in a bunch. He wants to do what he wants to do, no one is stopping him. He said he thinks its possible to do a 1.5 60' and I said I wanted him to prove it, in a challenge kind of way. Going to have to be a bit more thick skinned than that to hang around here. If you can't handle having your ***** busted a bit, this isn't the place to be. I learned that in my first week of trolling here.

That's because nobody builds a Miata with only 200 horsepower to go drag racing (except you). Nobody cares about best 60' or ET in a 200 horsepower Miata. You want to impress people, go out and make it fast.

The camera guy gets a good shot of it as they back the car off the lane.

This may be a noob question but, what caused the explosion? I thought nitrous could only do damage by causing your engine to run extremely lean.

I know that, i mean i am not a total , but why did it blow up like that? Was there some sort of leak then finally ignited or something or was that purely detonation from inside the engine?

Solenoid failed allowing fuel to pool in the intake manifold.

Interesting thread, want to see how it goes with his project. Nothing wrong with trying a different route, good luck.

Nitrous is cool, what the hell, anything is cool even putting a Jet engine on the trunk of the car. If you can afford filling that baby bottle every five seconds, so be it, better you than me.

To me Nitrous AKA NOS (LOL), is like been addicted to crack, heroin, meth and Kool-Aid at the same time and on top of that getting a table dance from some hot las vegas chick for half a second.

Its your money, nobody is saying huge chunks of power cannot be achieved with "NOS", but I prefer free lunch money anytime...

Good Luck on your project!

Oxygen would be even stronger, so how is a diluted form (Oxygen & Nitrogen) "oxygen on steroids"?

nice call, u are correct, ment more along the lines of air on steroids

I say this to try and explain to most unknowing people that Nitrous is not a combustible fuel as in you can not light it on fire alone.

The car on the motor will already outrun many of the starter turbo cars out there. I use nitrous for the drag strip.

If you were actually serious about making power you would ditch that retarded carburetor setup
