    Ugh ... poor guy! I am glad that nobody got hurt, but I feel so bad that he lost his car!

    I have seen two street cars burn up at the track. It's a terrible thing thank God nobody was hurt. I will say maybe if the owner could have raised his hood quickly after he popped the hood maybe the fire people could have gotten to the fire.

    A reminder that nitrous isn't necessarily safe and he was lucky the car didn't blow up. Keeping up with the jonses and not being able to get enough is a good thought here. It isn't worth risking your life over

    That's why the nitrous tank should be put in the trunk....as far from the engine as possible. I am so glad the driver was safe and unharmed...could have been a lot worse.

    Uh... Z28 aside, your profile says you own a Challenger Hellcat.

    Relax... it was only a Mustang. :p

    You love your car more than I, if you're running around the front and reaching for the hood latch with a nitrous system venting flames under the hood. All reports are it went up FAST, once he pulled the hood release.

    My profile says future Hellcat owner. Secondly he had time to open the hood for the fire fighters. Did you watch the video? My car is not worth my life but what happened no access to the engine and you have barbequed stang.
