O/T - NOS gone wrong?

My buddy sent me this link. It's a pretty amusing read. God help the guy if he's seriously that stupid.

Re: O/T - NOS gone wrong?

My buddy sent me that too, I coudlnt believe the first post. "I drilled the NOS into the valve housing" or something like that.

I like how many people said :
Put the tools down and give the kit back.

OK, I'm no car expert... and I don't pretend to be one. Me, I stick to computers when handing out advice. But after reading that thread, holy crap, I feel like an automotive genius!!!

Re: O/T - NOS gone wrong?

Lord knows what else this guy has done to his car. If you had no mechanical skills whatsoever and no basic understanding of how internal combustion engines work, why would you try to teach yourself on one of the more sophiticated sports cars (and engines) around?

Re: O/T - NOS gone wrong?

I thought "NOS" were just some fancy stickers that you put on the big wing in the back to make your ricer go faster. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: O/T - NOS gone wrong?

You know what, that brings up a good question... I always thought that the purpose of a spoiler (747 Wing in the case of some ricers I see) is to put downward force on the wheels powering the vehicle... I may be wrong... BUT, if I am in fact right, why are they putting downward force on the rear wheels? All those ricers are front wheel drive.


And as my dad always said... When a ricer pulls up next to your Jeep at a stoplight and challenges you to race... Tell him sure, but we get to pick the track... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
