Why don’t they ever turn off the nitrous before they get out of car so it don’t burn to the ground

what makes you think the bottle valve is within reach? and even if it is another 3-5 seconds turning a valve off is not first on my mind, sorry but if I see big fire like that right in front of me my first thought is get the hell out and away to save my ass!

But it wasn’t a big fire for 3-4 seconds plus I doubt he even clicked off power

Got me thinking. Wonder if someone can come up with a safety device that seals the supply line during excessive heat from a fire. Like the glass tube on a fire sprinkler. Obviously it'll be difficult with the environment and pressures it'll be in.

Needs to be cheap enough that ppl actually will buy and use.

Couldn't you just have a 1/4 turn valve within reach? At least in this situation.

Could a valve be utilized that would seal off main line if an exponential difference in pressure is detected amongst a short time period. The largest orifice used to meter nitrous flow cannot flow equal to a line with no obstructions. When an unobtrusive amount of flow is detected valve will close.

Looks like the fuel pump was left on as well......Had to be some fuel there for
the flames to take off like they did.

Is it my imagination,or was Something was amiss when they were sitting there purging it through the motor? I say that by the way it was popping out of the exhaust(late).Probably should’ve backed out at that point? Anyway, in hindsight..what do we think caused it? Retarded timing? Trying to spray too much at too low rpm’s? Cold motor/intake? I want to build a N2O car..but shit like this makes me want to go turbo or supercharged. Wonder if a fire suppression system would’ve saved it?

Too many variables. With the shot sizes these guys were probably running a simple misfire or knock could've caused a backfire, then it just becomes a chain reaction.

As soon as I watched the video I knew it was that car would be having the issues. well 60 seconds later(what a terrible fucking video by the way) I was right.

too many what if's on a car like this. this is obviously a low budget build. judging by the guys sweat pants and hoodie I'm sure he wasn't up to all certs needed. We're assuming... or you... are assuming that everything is set up the way its supposed to be in a race car when if you've ever seen a grudge car you know that don't give two shits about safety

Cause the vise-grips he had on the bottle to replace the broken handle fell off
