    NOS=Nitrous Oxide Systems (a brand name)

    When you inject Nitrous into any engine(not just RC) it puts more oxygen into the fuel. Nitro is Not the same as nitrous for the ones that are confused. Also, Nitrous Oxide is a cheap gas to fill...keep in mind it isn't in liquid form...its a gas. For some of you this sounds retarded but I sensed some confusion. This guys idea is totally do-able....I've installed them on real cars and trucks....you would need a tiny little tank and injection system for it though.

    My 2 cents

    Thanks bro, I guess in my rambling I was confusing others. So thank you for correcting me. It is actually NO2 not NOS. Man fast and the furious got me really worked up over that crap (oh no NOS so lets run away from the car before it blows up) and I guess I now find myself doing it. But it doesnt put more oxygen into the fuel alone but the vaporized air/fuel mix that enters the cylinder. That make the mixture burn more rapidly and completely resulting in a higher Horsepower and Torque band.

    NO2 is injected into the intake manifold (real cars) via indivual ports or a spray system under the carb and there is it allowed to mix with the fuel. I am not sure if I have ever seen a diesel motor on nitrus though. BRO... Have you? Although I have seen a Diesel truck run an 11 et in the 1/4... makes me wonder now.

    I checked out there web site and I read alittle on it and they were saying that it injects into the air filter BUT that bring to mind dirt, will it get mixed in? You would have to like replace it all the time. I dident see the price that page wouldn't come up

    Yes, it is actually Nitrous Oxide, and they say it works well, I could see using it for drag racing but no much else. It would be cool to try it.

    ya it only gives you a short burst of power unlike turbo and super chargers which are constant

    O.K. well i dont want to sound like im puttin anyone down on this but, alot of people are complaining about wear on the engine. Why? these motors run anywhere from 20,000 rpm to 60,000 as the highest ive ever seen. so, if that increases say 10,000 rpm its really not that big of a deal for wear. the only thing that will cause any more wear is the fact of FRICTION, but since this is a 2-stroke engine, the nitro acts as a lubricant also. also, nitrous burns colder than fuel. any additional wear on the engine SHOULD be minimal if at all. i for one give credit where credit is due. way 2 go GEAR-HEAD. post your progress and do you think you'll be fabbing a kit for a hyper .21 engine?

    if its cooler then fuel then wats the point in it. nitros is supposed to make the engine hoter and burn more fuel making more power. the way it sounds to me is that its going to make you loose power. just some of my thoughts

    Nitro also burns cooler, its all about the efficientcy of the burn in the chamber. You don't lose power, you will gain power.

    one thing that i have heard about the kit is that the power gain doesnt make up for the weight of the kit itself. is this true?

    That's a good point, I don't know if its true or not, I think it would have to do a lot with what engine you have to begin with. A good race engine would have a greater gain in power than a cheap play motor with the NOS.

    turbo chargers arn`t constant.the more boost you have the later the turbo will kick in.

    i agree with you about the super chargers though.

    The amount of boost depends on the turbo NOT when it will kick in
