Before The Fast and The Furious, cars were slow and the scenery never got all blurry. Then Din "the Actor" Viesel discovered NOS, and it was good. When equipped with big bottles of Nitrous cars could travel faster than the speed of sound and were finally able to overtake Superman.
As a famous artist once claimed, "When the pimp is in the crib mother, drop it like it's hot, drop it like it's hot."
Nitrous was virtually unknown before the release of the German documentary about Hitler, "Der Faust Unt Der Fuhrernicht". The film shows Hitler installing NOS on his Mercedes Benz 540K, eventually leading to his brainchild, the Autobahn. The plot thickens when he cannot figure out how to keep his floorpans from dropping out. After removing his passenger seat, a tickertape device connected to a typewriter was installed in its place, with LEDs encircling the glass dome. The SS was ensured that this was not for aesthetic reasons, but to warn him of manifold failure after several bursts of nitrous through the supercharged V8. His impatience led him to scream, "Mein bodenwannen fällt heraus! SCHEISSE! Die bodenwannen sind einer nuisance-wannen...." Germans everywhere saw the film and demanded a "People's Car with NOS", which Hitler obliged and took credit for. Soon after, NOS spread through Europe, causing blurred vision, vomiting and violent diarrhea. This however was the creation of an economic miracle; Jobs were available to all whom wanted to cruise the autobahns in flatbed trucks gathering scattered floorpans, burned out shells of former vehicles, and scraping the remains of drivers off of the road surfaces.
That film was followed by another, which was the same film, but in a different location.
That film was followed by another, which again was the same film, but by different people, and with motorcycles. Logically, it was called Torque, a characteristic for which which crotch rockets are known. Most crotch rockets are rotary powered turbo diesel engines with a top RPM of 4,000.
Torque was followed by another, which again was the same film, but by different people, called Biker Boyz, because it had "boyz" who were "bikerz", probably. It would've been best if they'd had a dictionary instead.
Neither of the motorcycle movies had nitrous, but then again none of them were any good, so at least they have that in common (the bit about being bad, not the bit about NOS).
Taken together, all of these films teach you everything you need to know about nitrous, especially films three and four, which didn't mention it even once.
There may have also been another film in there somewhere. It had cars, probably. Maybe scooters. The scooters used the same size NOS tanks as passenger vehicles, so seats were mounted to the tanks for comfort.
The Science Behind NOS, Made Simple Edit
Scientifically, Nitrous Oxide contains stuff that makes your engine more betterful. The more bottles of nitrous your car has the faster it will be.
You will also need-
- Red NOS seatcovers made of pure asbestos bought from your local car parts store, this is to reduce the risk of fire. Making fire outside good; fire inside bad.
- An eight-inch tach with a 400watt yellow shift light to remind you, while under the influence of NOS, that you have to change gears. Especially if your "whip" is equipped with an automatic gearbox. The tack should sweep up to at least 10,000rpm, as the limit of the tach is the limit of the engine.
- Manifold made of extremely strong material to avoid "manifold failure"
- An unsecured laptop on the passenger seat to warn you of manifold mailure. Or to spool MP3s to the stereo. It's all good.
- Cut out the front driver and passenger floorpans and spot-weld diamond-pattern aluminum (or aluminium) floor plates in their place. These will fall out when you are both fast and furious. The laptop's MP3 decoding software, no matter how advanced, will not warn you of this.
- Have your parents purchase lightweight, carbon fiber seats to replace the slightly heavier factory seats, and blinking LEDs for scattering in various places both in and outside the vehicle.
- Be sure to reinforce the welds on the intake manifold, lest they blow under extreme pressure.
- Build up your car in a montage. Everything works better after a good montage. It does not matter the skill levels of those who help you, as long as the music is loud.
- Vinyl stickers. It doesn't matter if you don't know what the company makes, they'll automatically boost your HP by MaD NuMBAz. A "Powered by Acura" sticker on the fender of your '93 Toyota Camry wagon, for example, is a guaranteed 5-7 horsepower boost.
Installation of NOS Edit
You need lots of big bottles of NOS. Forget anything you've heard about "jets" or "fuel", and if you've heard of "wet shot" or "dry shot" those are actually porn terms and have absolutely nothing to do with nitrous (except of course, for after the not illegal and not extremely stupid street race, when you hook up with the honeys after not falling off the road, not crashing, and not blowing up the engine in your '77 Ford Pinto).
Be careful your polished aluminum floorboards do not fall out and be careful not to, as Din Viesel said, "burn up your piston rings.". Don't worry about burning up your pistons, dropping a valve at 10,000 rpm, cross threading your iridium plugs, laying an ignition wire against your flakey/crusty headers, or pushing a connecting rod out the side of your block as the piston rings are the only thing that can burn up. ( throw the canisters under the hood they'll sort themselves out)
How to avoid burning up your piston rings is, sadly, not explained in any of the films - this means no one, not even Hollywood, knows how to avoid this. Luckily, as in the first film, rebuilding an engine can be completed in one simple montage (don't forget the background music!)...and if you get a crappy and slow non-turbo MK IV Supra don't forget to act awed and surprised when you pop the hood and find a 2JZGE engine. Also the second film shows that dirty but mint condition R34 Skyline GTR's can be found cheap in the back of shitty used car lots.
Be careful of the Chinese mafia, they have little patience when dealing with Gaijin mechanics that take too long to put Nissan engines into their Acuras, and will subsequently argue over what weight of oil to fill your mouth with. Also, don't make the mistake of sleeping with their sisters; they will avenge this transgression by flagging you down the parking lot of a Golden Buffet, attempt a series of witty comments, and then unload several hundred rounds of ammo into your car.
Don't worry about pesky trivialities like Air-Fuel ratios or "building up" the engine, as NOS will massively increase horsepower on a completely stock engine and never, ever causes your engine to violently disintegerate - provided, of course, that you follow the teachings of Din Viesel exactly.
- Ensure the NOS bottle is full by cracking open the valve and taking a whiff.
- Place bottle in car, take another whiff to make sure it's still good.
- Connect tubing, sniff the end of the tube.
- Close garage door, you want to build up some NOS in the environment.
- Start engine to get environmental NOS into the engine.
- Take a good deep breath from the NOS tube. Repeat.
- Vomit from trace sulfur content in bottle.
- Try to ignore your dead grandmother crawling up your leg with a knife in her teeth.
Enormous additional power increases are guaranteed if you add a K&N filter, coffee can sized exhaust tip (Folgers will do, make sure to paint "Type R" on the side of it), 20" spinning wheels with 8 inch spacers, (This will improve the handling and increase the longevity of your balljoints and wheel bearings) a body kit with a cool name like "Combat" or "Buddy Club" (make sure it comes with a wing that rests no less than three feet off the trunklid), dropped springs (so every time your wheel is anywhere off center you'll hear a cool scraping sound), and LED windshield squirters.
Avoid granny shifting and make sure to double clutch as if you were shifting a non-synchro transmission out of a semi from 1954. Double clutching is used by speed-racers when downshifting; foot off the gas, mash clutch, put tranny in neutral, let off clutch, mash clutch, blip the gas, put tranny one gear lower than before, punch the NOS button and mash the accelerator. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Remember, if you do it right the transmission will make cool grinding sounds. Grinding adds power through weight reduction; the less material on the gear or synchro, the faster it spins!
HowTo:Use Nitrous To Win Friends and Impress People Edit
After pressing the Nitrous botton installed in your super-car (preferably Japanese, but German steel can be substituted in a pinch), the world around you will blur, accurately portrayed in the computer simulation "Need for Speed Underground" (a sim that's so realistic you can use it to learn how to "drift", (A phenomenon created by setting the front toe angles in separate directions) then use your skills at high speed on real city streets! This is in direct contrast to arcadey games like "Gran Turismo" or racing on sanctioned, safe racetracks - both of which will fail to improve your "skilz", yo).
If you don't have NOS, or if your driver's licence has been pulled because you raced on public streets, this blur can also be simulated by standing up too fast, or by getting really, really drunk. Or standing up too fast.
Be sure to purge your lines at every available opportunity, to ensure that the system is armed with a fresh batch of gas (not to impress passersby and other road users). Do not at any stage take note of bottle pressure or temperature, as only pussies and nerds keep track of things. Time spent to check bottle pressure is better spent polishing the diamond plate floorpan. Chicks dig shiny floors.

Fire = GoodEdit
Another important aspect of using Nitrous is the super-heated fire that blazes out of the back of your tailpipe. Fire coming out of the tailpipe is always a good thing and never indicates that your engine is running really, really rich or that the catalytic converter has mere minutes to live. It could also mean your car is on fire, Which also creates power and looks cool, but that only happens if you don't use enough nitrous. Don't worry. To be safe, make sure to replace the cat with a "test pipe", and don't switch it back. That black smoke coming out of the chromed 6" tip is the colour of horsepower!
Without these features, Nitrous would never attain the speeds that it claims on the label printed on the bottle, next to the Expiration date and "for off-road use only". Make sure to leave the nitrous connected when you go to your local emissions station for a smog test. This will cause the exhaust to shoot ubercool fireballs into their diagnostics gear, lowering your emissions and guaranteeing that your car will pass with flying colors.
The NOS Virus Edit
*** I put this in my gas tank for teh horse powerz!!!1 ***
The "NOS Virus" has recently been identified as the single most crippling attack to [Skynet] system to date. Little is known of the virus origin, but in 2009 the hacker legend "sti2gsxr" single-handedly hacked a website critically linked to the main internet hub, causing blackouts throughout central Asia and parts of Wisconsin. The site gixxer.com was first introduced to the NOS virus at 3:00pm on 05/19/2009... that's 19/05/2009 to you britts.
The virus is designed to distract global citizens from their daily activities, therefore simply stopping all productivity and development on a global scale.
At this time, there is no known cure for stopping this internet virus, and it has seemed to take on a life of its own. It has been estimated by webmasters that by the end of 2009, the virus will take over all web pages search engines, and direct all internet traffic to the gixxer.com website. From here, it has been established that hacker legend "sti2gsxr" will simply turn off the internet. When asked why he would do such a thing... he was cited to say "Omfg noobs. nobody helpz me got my bike to run!" then babbled something off topic about "how could more octane hurt?"
Network analysts are working on a cure, somehow linked to deleting all avatars. While these solutions are tested, it has been recommended by government officials to avoid energy drinks, and use the internet for its primary functions... searching for porn and playing WOW.
Also Known AsEdit
- NOS (pronounced "NAWZ")
- HIPPY CRACK (in balloons)
- "Boost", "Booster", or "Turbo Nitro Booster"
- Nitro, originally was meant for nitromethane, but to be cool you gotta associate "nitro" with N20
- Laughing gas (if medical grade)
- Painful, throbbing headache (if industrial grade)
- Cop Attractant
- Motor Sploder
- teh horse powerz
- That explosive stuff used in Fast and Furious
- ^ Your results may vary. It's most likely that, instead of being Din Viesel, you'll continue to be the pale and scrawny suburban brat that you are now. On the plus side, you'll also be dead.
- Honda, Mitsubishi, Toyotas, Nissans, Subarus, Minivans (or any other 60hp factory vehicle) are the only cars NOS stickers should be applied to. If NOS Stickers are applied to Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Drag cars, you will lose hp and respect from the rice community.
