NOS would not do that. Nothing short of gas all over and the car on fire would do that.
Just another reason to get a custom chrome fire extinguisher mounted on the passenger A-pillar like all the rice-boys.

Nitrous could absolutely do that. especially if s/he left the bottle heater on, or left it out open in the hot sunlight, if it was in the back seat or something? anyways, i saw the backend of a maxima completely blown apart, only connected by the left rear quarterpanel of sheet metal because of a nitrous explosion. once the bottle explodes, so does the rest of the car, and sometimes the gas tank also.

it doesn't look like the any of the windows are left, which could have been from the explosion.


on a side note, i think it was because of riceboy jealousy/vandalism!

Yeah GTE, i read about that one... funny in the sense that there was nothing left of the a$$-end of his car, and even the garage got trashed some...
But I disagree, that wasn't from nitro, there'd be more damage if the bottle blew. Looks like a simple case of crash & burn

There should be a relief valve of some sort. Reason why the Maxima had that happen was because the relief valve failed. Also, the Maxima blew because of the immense compression and sudden expansion and has little to do with the NO2 as its not flammable.

What does DWP mean?

I dont get it. On a bottle of NOS it has a label that says "Non Flamable Gas"

How the heck does NOS blow up then???

I thought F&F was just doing it for effects and it wouldnt ever happen.

Just because something blows up doesn't necessarily mean its flammable. Take soda for example, when you shake it up and then open it, it essentially blows up but at a different rate. F&F is a movie and like most movies, certain things are exaggerated.
