What not to do with Nitrous.

The safety disks are suppose to blow and relieve the nitrous at 3000psi but sometimes they fail and the bottle goes boom. I'd imagine it would take more than 10,000psi to burst a bottle maybe less depending on the age of the bottle.

How I wish I still had the pictures of a Chevy 427 that ingested a little too much grog (the idiot hit the button when he turned the key)... sure made a lot of paper weights...

Oh man, there were engine parts scattered for about ten feet around the engine... pulled the manifolds off, parts were scattered both directions, pulled the pan... there were shards from every concievable part of the engine you can imagine...

Never had a battery go BANG! Although all the hydrogen gas... could make for a good fireworks display! How badly did you get deep fried?

Luckily those were for one of my RC's and not a real car battery. Here's the link on Traxxas' forum for my thread on it.
