I was planning on using a neoprene bottle warmer, gives better results with NOS and under the same principal it excites the molecules moving them faster for a bigger show, same reason I run out of welding gas this time of year far faster x.x

As for the seperate solenoids, I'd have one master valve on a regulator, and then a solenoid for each of the 3 branches, I'd only use one at a time so they could all use the same power supply

NOS is also a brand, it works under the same principal, it's a solid that boils well below 0* so as it becomes warmer the molecules become more agitated and come out with much more effect, NOS runs dry or wet, dry like dry ice or as a liquid in the lines injected into the engine except instead of to the engine we run the same setup except into the jetpack thrusters and each gauntlet, both my gauntlets have flaemthrowers and a pair of braided hoses so I would switch to quick-connect airhose fittings off the compression fittings that come on the kit, the n for the control hose that carries the switch wires it'd just be a couple of wires running along the hoses taped together that go to a small terminal block plug like what automotive trailers plug into rate at the licence plate, then i just have the same thing on the ends going to the jetpack so they run up the back of the vest  and out each arm.

That sounds badass, expensive though. The rig would cost an arm and leg. My buddy has NOS In his car and the bottles runi believe 600. To be able to have both a jetpack and TWO flame throwers would be amazing! You will have to show me your progress man

Use smaller bottles  :P

Is nitrous legal in cars where you are? In the UK its defo not lol they tried marketing co2 kits as being able to increase the power by charge cooling the air going into the engine via a cooler jacket slapped round the intake but it never really took off.

NOS is legal in the US, Speeding is not  :P

Everything you want to know about NOS and the US can be observed in the FAST and FURIOUS franchise. Cars have 20 gears, constant acceleration and even drift strait aways!  :laugh:

NOS is legal here lol but I have never heard of Co2 actually being used to replace NOS. the only thing it does is poof "smoke" to simulate the NOS after purging the system.

It isn't used as anythign injected in the engine it only does the purge to simulate Nos like for people's HondaCivic Ricers

As I said...it was marketed here. Not for injection into the engine though as that'd be really counter productive  :laugh:

The idea was that the intake had a collar round it that you fed co2 through. this acted as coolant to cooler the air and therefore increase its density. The science was right enough but the actual difference made in negligible. Most just used it as fake Nos purges.

The good part about using NOS is, it certainly makes cons more fun for everyone nearby.  Nitrous oxide being vented with abandon for effects might have some... unintentional consequences.  Between that and the cost, I'd think CO2 would be the way to go.

*note to self*

NOS grenades could be useful on aggressive creatures for negotiations...
