Interesting perspective. I know a lot of people share your view, but I don't understand it. I say fast is fast, and easy is better than hard. If nitrous is allowed on the drag strip, the only thing that matters is who crosses the finish line first, right?Xerxes said:I say lame and rice.
Nitrous is the 'easy way'. That's how people with shitty cars and no know-how try to make their cars quick. I don't like it at all. I'd rather do it right. Also, I've never had a car with the funny stuff, but I know plenty of people who have. The risk, if used properly and in moderation, is minimal to acceptable. However, many people that don't know better blow shit up using nitrous. Also, it can't be argued that it puts more strain on your engine and drivetrain. Shouldn't affect the SRT-4 too much if you're careful. My conclusion: NO.
It is your opinion and whether or not I agree with it I'm not going to talk shit about it. My opinion is based on fact. And the people I consulted are ones like a friend that owns a local performance shop. He works on and dynos everything from your average tuned cars (neons, civics, accords, etc.) to BMW 750il's, lots of Porsches, and last time I was there there were a few real badass RX7's. He likes nitrous, depending on the application. I don't like it, depending on the application. I wouldn't put it in any of my cars (especially street cars), but I'm not totally opposed to it in some cars. If you're having a hard time getting power any other way, sometimes sissy gas is a good option for you. I just don't think it's the way to go (at all) with the SRT-4. So many good (and in my opinion better) ways to make power.RedSRT4Me said:your conclusion has no factual information :wink:
simply based on opinion you don't like nitrous for the bang for the buck power it gives, to these "ricers" is the impression I get.
power is power no matter how make it.
I can hardly see how nitrous is rice or lame. But that would be my opinion
Amen, brother. I've been watching cars juiced with nitrous for 30 years. Long before rice was anything other than the San Francisco treat.Acidryno said:Just because you have SEEN others with N2O you want to car it rice. Maybe you saw a ricer with it then labled it, sissy. Nittro has been used on V8s for decades. Tell a guy down here in Shreveport La. (at the track) his blown/juiced 64 Malibu is rice!
