Nitrous Oxide? Well? Could I put it in my TR7?
This gasoline fume-induced fantasy came about as I get ready to write an
article about NASCAR racing, for which I get to drive a NASCAR stock car for
eight laps this coming weekend. 600 horsepower -- whew!.... A friend, who
lives and dies by drag racing, keeps ragging me about putting nitrous oxide
in the TR7, at moderate amounts of course.
I keep telling him he's crazy, would blow the engine, too expensive, etc.
But after next weekend I may definitely feel the need for speed....
Yeah, I know, a V8 conversion is a better idea. Others of you are probably
saying, "Get a real Triumph."
But what about nitrous? Could you do it in a conservative way and not wreck
I can just see having a shift knob with a red button that says "Bye Bye" just
like in the movie "Gone in Sixty Seconds."
Yeah, I know, I should finish installing the fuel pump first!...
