Nitrous, like fire, can be man’s best friend or worst enemy when it goes wrong. Consider this video as going as wrong as it can possibly go.
The drag car in question suffers a flaming nitrous backfire which immediately erupts under the hood into a raging fire. The track officials armed with weenie extinguishers don’t get it out and only really succeed in making the fire gods angrier until stuff under the hood starts to melt and, well we won’t ruin it for you.
We’re not sure what track this video is from but their safety crew isn’t exactly made up of people possessing Carl Lewis-esque speed.
Snap crackle pop.
