Default Nitrous primer

I just read this, and from my noob to N2O perspective, it seems to be very infomative. I just wanted to share. Let me know if there is erroneous info in here.

If it is OK to disarm law abiding citizens to reduce crime, then it stands to reason to disarm the military to prevent war!

The sentence "the additional O2 will react with the piston crown or exhaust valve like a cutting torch" is nonsense, obviously. Besides that there is nothing really dangerous about reading the material, but it is not really a "bible" by any means.

He is talking about injecting liquid N20. If the heat gets high enough to release the oxygen, and there isn't enough fuel and the engine hasn't already detonatoted to bits; You could burn steel.

I think the idea of liquid N20 injection is just silly though, the air fuel mixture would be super inefficent. Poor mixing would cause huge issues with flame front propagation and create big hot spots. Hot spots = bad.

I guessing this guy has little clue about what he is talking about. I think he beleaves that N2O is coming into the cylinders as a liquid. Really it has just about fully changed phase by then. The cooling effect has brought in more air and the N20 has brought more oxygen to the party on top of that.

I wouldn't recommend this article.
