Good old Nitrous backfire. IMO the insurance company will pay for the damage unless they find out it happened on a Drag Strip. If they do he's SOL. :eek:o:

Never a good thing to see a Vette go down like that. Even worse was the idiotic and disrespectful commentary by the camera operator.

Does it say anywhere what size of shot he was running and what safety equipment he had/did not have?

I have only seen one speculation that he did not have a window switch and he puddled early in the powerband(?)

Does anyone know the story?

I have only one speculation: that you didn't read the link that was posted a few threads up.

Sad to see a Z go like that. Quick reaction by the safety crew. :roll: In the right side of the video you can see a guy with a fire bottle who seems to be scared to go near the car. Perhaps afraid of another explosion? I wish the commentator had kept his comments to himself.

Isn't nitrous non-flammable? If so, then what caused the fire?
yes you are right. n20 is not flammable. the guy was running a tnt "wet" kit that supplies the intake w/fuel. the fuel being heavier than tha the n20 [a gas] pooled in the intake & ignited, exploding the intake.
