This Is What Happens When Using NOS Goes Horribly Wrong

Drag Race

Oh the humanity!

When it comes to drag racing and tuning a truck like a Chevrolet S-10, there’s probably only so much that can be modified on the stock engine before nitrous tanks are inevitably added to boost performance output. Besides the added benefit of a simple power increase solution, using a highly flammable gas like nitrous also comes with a few risks. This video of an old S-10 lining up at the beginning of a quarter mile drag strip shows one of the worst outcomes that can come from attempting to enhance auto performance with NOS.

Thankfully, we believe the driver survived this incident without incurring any serious injuries. The truck? Let's say it got toasted.
