Things you need to know!

	Note, the following information answers some of the more commonly 
asked questions on nitrous oxide; for precise details relating to your
specific application please contact the manufacturer - OZRACE PRODUCTS.
Contact details are available throughout this web site.
How it works?

	When fitted to the vehicle as per the instructions, the kit is 
activated when, and only when, the toggle switch and bottle are on and the
driver is at full throttle. When you back off the throttle, the nitrous is
automatically switched off. Horsepower is created by burning fuel in the
correct mixture with oxygen, thus with the addition of both Nitrous Oxide
and fuel to the mix, the oxygen in the Nitrous Oxide gas is effectively
allowing the burning of the extra fuel you are adding and thus generating
more horsepower than usual.

Is there a kit for my vehicle?

	OZRACE PRODUCTS manufacture kits for a wide range of applications 
and can provide kits suitable for a wide range of vehicles including
motorbikes, rotary engines, LPG or even alcohol and fuel injected engines
- if it has a spark plug in it, you can put nitrous on it!. Kits
are availiable in either under carb plate systems or custom built direct
port systems. Kits available from 25 to 800 horsepower.

Can I run nitrous on a methanol motor?

	As we have proven over the last twelve months. The OZRACE Camaro has 
run successfully and consistent with an OZNOS Progressive kit on our
555 cubic inch motor running a Ron's Terminator methanol injection
system. We have run it with all combinations, all methanol, methanol and
hydrocarbon fuel (the results can be seen in the "Outstanding Performer"
The advantages of running the motor on methanol are: it is far more
economical with methanol at less that a dollar a litre compare to those
exotic fuels at around seven dollars a litre and your motor runs a lot
cooler and you will also be ready for the next round of racing without
having an overheating problem.
We have found that the money we will save on fuel, will pay for the Ron's
System in about two years of racing.

The cost of Nitrous Gas

	Nitrous Gas will last 10 seconds per lb of gas per 100 HP, your 
local BOC agency will rent you the bottle and exchange for refills.

Where do I get my Ron's Injection System?

	OZRACE PRODUCTS is the factory appointed Australian Distributor for 
Ron's Racing Products.
These systems are so easy to use and tune compared to all the variables
and adjustments that come with carburettors.
So just give is a call and we will be only too pleased to look after you.
They come with everything, from the fuel filter to the shut off cable,
you just need to add the fuel lines.

Does it cause any engine stress?

	OZNOS kits are all designed to be used on standard motors and then,
with specific modifications, allow more horsepower to be added. As long as
you follow the instructions, provide an ample fuel supply and stay within
your motors rev-range there will be no adverse effects on your engine.
Remember the three OZNOS Rules:
1. Do not over horsepower your engine.
Motor: 4 cylinder 6 cylinder V8
Cast Pistons: Up to 50HP. Up to 100HP. Up to 150HP
Forged Pistons: up to 100HP. Up to 150HP. Call for details
Hypereutectics Pistons are not recommeded, as they are brittle.
2. Do not over rev your engine.
It is better to short shift, this will actually give you a quicket ET.
3. Do not run the engine lean.
Leaning an engine down to gain more horsepower is questionable as a lean
mixture will burn parts. Read your spark plugs, if they show a little
colour then you should be OK, if the porcelain is all white after a run
then you are on the verge of burning parts. Better to go to the next
higher horsepower setting to gain the extra power, rather than hurting
The use of a Nitrous Filter is optional but higly recommended to prevent any
damage to the solenoid seat via foreign matter (such damage is not covered
under warranty).

Is it legal?

	In Queensland and Western Australia it is illegal to fit a Nitrous 
Kit to a registered street vehicle, we are still negiotiating with these
states. In all the other states the law states:
"a road registered vehicle fitted with nitrous oxide must have the
system modified so that the bottle is properly secured in the brackets
provided and isolated from the engine (disconnect the main braided line
from the bottle), and the supply line to the engine is physically blocked
off with an approved A-1 Performance disarming kit (a disarming kit is
included in every OZNOS Kit, so that the joiner tubes from the solenoids to
the injection point may be removed) whilst the vehicle is being street

What are the advantages of Nitrous Oxide?

	OZNOS Nitrous Oxide Systems are the cheapest horsepower per dollar you
can buy. Once fitted the nitrous is used only when you want it to be, thus
you are not burning extra fuel unnecessarily. The car not only races at the
drags on the weekend but goes to and from work in an economical manner
during the week.

What else may I need?

	OZRACE PRODUCTS also manufacture components which are not absolutely
necessary for your kit to function, but which will enhance the kits
advantages. These include:
	* a nitrous filter; 

* nitrous pressure gauge complete with line adapater - to help you
fine tune your kit;

* the Fuel Doctor - a fuel regulator and distribution system that
controls pressure without restricting flow;

* the specially designed ' Holley electric pump booster spring, fuel
pressure gauge;

* and the Line Lock which is rebuildable and comes complete with all
