Some of my favorite bad and dumb movies are the Fast and Furious films. They don’t take themselves too seriously, and the plots are so easy to follow that you don’t really even need to know how to speak English to enjoy them. Fast and Furious also introduced me to nitrous oxide, or NOS (though that’s technically a…
One of the easiest ways to get an engine to make big horsepower is to hook it up to a bottle of Nitrous. But with great power, comes great responsibility—you can only spray so much of the good stuff into an engine before it blows up, and David Freiburger at Motor Trend found out exactly how much that is.
Out of the turkey coma? Good. Time to hit the garage then. A nitrous system is easy horsepower and David Freiburger from Hot Rod is here to show you exactly how to install one.
We all know kids and pets shouldn't be left in cars on hot summer days, but one Fox Mustang owner in Texas learned the hard way that bottles of horsepower-boosting volatile chemicals should be on that list as well.
According to our man-in-the-street race Mohammad AlNaqi, this was a stroker C6 Z06 with NOS running up against a turbo 997 in a late-night Kuwaiti street race. All is going well until the zed-oh-six becomes zed-on-fire.

A forumite at Gixxer claims he poured two 20 oz. bottles of NOS into his motorcycle's fuel tank because it was "running like crap." There's only one "NOS" that comes in 20 oz. sizes — the energy drink. Forum troll or honest-to-goodness recollection of an epic failure? You decide.
Samurai Speed already found the limits of its transmission, blowing that when they attempted a modified-engine, launch control-on, drag start. Now it appears they've found the limits of the engine: 600 HP at the wheels plus an extra 150 HP worth of Nitrous.
Up in Northern Michigan, the rally action is as furious as ever. Join us below for our mega gallery of what can only be described as Michigan's great motorsport secret.
The 2008 X-Games Rally held in Carson, California this weekend saw Andrew Comrie Picard launch his Mitsubishi Evo over the big stadium jump, come up short, and flip the car end over end back onto its wheels. The driver and co-driver were uninjured, but the car, as you can see from the in-car angle, wasn't able to…
