« on: Aug 03, 2010, 09:47 PM »
I've been working on my CO2/Nitrous purge kit for my jetpack and gauntlet flamethrower. Here is my first test run!

Glad to see you got this up and running Seeker!  I'm guessing you used 2 servos, one for the gaunt and one for the pack?

The purge kit for this application runs around $150 for everything (lines, servo, bottle and T-joint) and can be purchased from Dynotune.  http://www.dynotunenitrous.com/store/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=92

The bottle weighs 1.25lbs empty and around 4-5lbs full.  That's really the only con in the whole system, but once you get it empty the pack becomes light.  I can get anywhere from 11 to 15 shots out of jetpack before the bottle is empty.

I've got the red LED light in the end of my gauntlet but I have the light hooked up so when I hit the button for the fog it doesn't stay on long enough to show up. I'll have to rewire it into the arming switch.

I bought quite abit more with mine, some extra bottles, another servo, braded line , red led and mount. My setup was 400.00 .....and just to look cool! I got to be crazy! Lol!

I'm gonna put it on when we're driving down the road and get in the back of the truck and yell "you steer, I'll push" and activate it and see how many people stare  ;D
