Re: Nitrous
I sure do. I have probably won three out of four rounds I should have lost because of it.
This is on my 1150 and bracket Street /strip car. I used to have one single nozzle plumbed into the manifold but now i use the zex surround plate system it’s a pretty small shot just enough to keep them out in front if they want to wheel race

Re: Nitrous
Do you have a button on the wheel? Also, do you purge before every pass? Thanks.

Re: Nitrous
Yes I have a mushroom button on the steering wheel and no I try not to purge while anybody is looking usually I do that in the pit

Re: Nitrous
One other thing I have done is run on just the front two barrels of my carburetor with a cable hooked up inside the car I would open the back two when needed. 😎

Re: Nitrous
Bracket racing with nitrous oxide, they do mix well together. in the 80's and 90's Skip Carpenter East coast bracket sportsman champion used nitrous to save his bacon more than once.I think now it's a lost art but it does save you in case of a bad light.

Have it on our bracket car.
Firm believer in it.

My Son has won a lot of races with it.
We have a 7.10 car that 60fts 1.48.
Only a 10" tire.

Got to the track one time, notice the tires were worn out.
Spun every pass in TT.

Went thru a 10LB bottle that day & came out with a win.

Re: Nitrous
I'll bite. I can see the juice helping with a spin. But how does it help with a bad light other than illusion of being in the race? Which means your not dialing for it and your on a breakout run... How do you prevent a breakout out or are you just hoping to drive the other guy under....
