Street Racing Tip 187: How Not to Spray Your Car

Spray NitrousIf you have spent any time around cars, you probably heard people talk about spraying nitrous into a motor. If do not know, spraying does not mean to spray your engine with nitrous but instead run nitrous through a nitrous system. A video uploaded by the channel MexicoRacingLeague shows what happens when a few guys at a small shop take the term spraying a bit too literally.

At a small shop, a few guys took a Nitrous Xpress bottle and sprayed a nitrous oxide directly into a the intake of a Chevy Cobalt SS. While the Cobalt was making a dyno pull, the man holding the bottle sprayed the laughing gas directly on to the cold air intake. A few seconds later the motor froze then died and a large cloud of white icy smoke shot out of the exhaust.

Why would some one do this to a perfectly good Chevy? Well either they are extremely bored, have too much money, or have inhaled too much of the laughing gas themselves. Our guess it’s a combination of all 3.

If it is a combination of all 3 we think it’s best that we don’t let these guys touch any more cars. We should be thankful that it was only a Cobalt that was harmed and not something valuable.
