Seriously, this is one of the saddest videos I've watched in a long time.

This is why you don't use nitrous as a power-adder!! Unfortunately, I don't know the details of this scenario (ie. brand of system NX vs. TNT vs. other, looks like a wet system, size of N20 shot/pill, safety features...window and WOT switch, etc. ) Maybe someone else knows...If so please provide further info. I'm interested to hear from those of you who have nitrous and have claimed it is relatively safe to spray a Z. :screwy:
I suspect in this case, there was activation of the nitrous at too low of an engine rpm.

I sprayed my Z safely for over a year, this is a sad case though, but to generalize that nitrous is bad is :screwy: Heck any thing is dangerous if not used properly even a tooth brush :lol:

What a shame.
