There is a fine line between being a stunt superhero and a Darwin Award recipient. It looks something like this;

I think these lads are well cool, they said they have been talking about it for 3 years waiting for the right weather. They have planned it several times but had to call it of.

Next challenge- first to jump the pier in a SR4.

The complicated relationship between hoovers and Vacuum cleaners...

Sorry to be pedantic, but technically "NOx" is less correct than "NOS". The chemical formula for Nitrous Oxide (Nitrous) is N2O, not NOx.


Very similarly to the fact that everyone calls a hoover a hoover, and not a vacuum cleaner, is because the brand name has become synonymous with the product, even if it is made by another company, it is still a hoover!

In the nitrous world, NOS is probably the most famous manufacturer of Nitrous for street racing, so the brand name has become synonymous with the product even if it is made by another brand!

So... calling nitrous "NOS" is the same as calling a hoover a hoover. However, I can't find a reason anywhere to call it NOX N2O on the other hand is also correct; indeed in Fast and Furious and other films it is called N2O
