Default Racetec for Heavy nitrous

Has anyone used Racetec piston for 500 to 600hp of nitrous?

I have been using them for 4-5 years at 400hp of nitrous with no issues. Great pistons!

I was told that 400 to 450 was the highest nitrous to use with these pistons.

Things to consider:
1: They probably get asked that question way too often by those thinking that it is possible to not kill engine parts.
There is always a way to hurt parts in the quest.
It's what we do.
It is not really a fair question when you think it through.
I suspect they grabbed a number out of the air to satisfy those type of questions.

2: 500 all at once it a real serious, sudden shock to the system.
Find someone with a dyno to confirm that is possible on your combo.

3: Now, stretch it out over a whole run with multi stages and you can get away with a higher total number.

Had a second thought at supper about the 500 hit.
IF they meant per piston that is impressive.

Equals +4000 w 8 cylinders.
I want video when this goes down.
