      chris, do it. car would be awesome on nitrous
      i have a NX setup, but my blow down tube itself is a NX part, and the bottle fitting and pressure valve are NOS parts.
      my bottle sits on the drivers side of the car (jetta) in the trunk, where that flat section is. drilled a hole right through the floor there, and its vents straight down to the ground.
      nothing crazy, but effective.

      It's been years since that day, so... Do you remember that Survival Series back in spring of 2003?
      The day you went, 13.000000000000. Anyway, we all thought you had a Sneaky Pete or something in your door.
      I also tree'd your ass in the semi finals but you drove around me.
      Ahhh, those were some fun races man. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I'll tell you the full story later some day...
      Now that I think about it, I am trying to think what format that was because I Joe got bumped from the field due to one of my 13.6x runs. It might have been the good old "Frantic 4" format, not sure, if not then we had a full 8 car field for Class C, that would be a rare event for sure.

      ordered drag radials and the bottlee heater tonight!!!!!! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

    16. 02-03-2007 08:12 PM #91
      prolly gonna need slicks if you wanna go 11s... if we ever roll out together i can probably get a set of 24.5s for you to try out that are bolted to some factory 5x100 wheels. just somethin to think about [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

    17. 02-03-2007 09:09 PM #92
      word thatll work, well with the progressive controller i will be running a 50 shot in 1st, and then from there out alot higher. i am tryin to get a dyno run to see what my a/f and whp is on my 100shot single fogger right now, i just went out and sprayed a half of the jug for fun, i dont get out much in it and i wanted to make sure everything was working good, it was running ok, i heated the bottle with a space heater for like 30 min b4 i went out, got the pressure to about 950. \
      and if you want to sell the slicks ill buy em??? i wanted the drag radials to go on the street with

    18. 02-03-2007 09:23 PM #93
      im runnin a 4-lug setup, so the slicks you'd be running are a friend of mine's...he runs a VRT and he uses them regularly. how did it like the 100 shot? i always had the jets in my ash tray for the 100, but always kept it at 75 on the single. wish i woulda popped em in though

    19. 02-03-2007 09:45 PM #94
      vedddy nice Put it this way blazed soo ****in hard 2nd gear. its a big up from a 75 shot [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

    20. 02-03-2007 09:49 PM #95
      oh and btw thats cool about the slicks, i might buy a set i have some avus wheels to put them on soo idk, man i wish i had some wheels and slick/skinnies like you!!! you can run honda ones too. easy to find on honda-tech and **** i bet.
      Oh and BTW to anyone... Would a purge kit be a good idea or just let some spray out like a minute b4 i turn the car on??

    21. 02-03-2007 10:18 PM #96
      purge it... you dont want to spray ANYthing through the system into the intake if it is not WOT. i used to "purge" my system that way... it resulted in a monster nitrous backfire that thankfully only destroyed the plastic intake boot. picture a massive flame coming up the windshield and over the roof on a 3rd gear downshift at 70mph... cant imagine what the law abiding drivers around me thought

    22. 02-04-2007 12:46 AM #97
      yea tru, ill go ahead and get that too! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      yes, buy yourself a purge valve. its both good prior to runs, and when you close the bottle to bleed off any nitrous left in the lines.
      by tuesday i will know if i am going single fogger or direct port.
