probably need to change the yam prop for a surface piercing one though!

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[/quote]

I was looking at Wikipedia and it said that NOS came from Nitrous Oxide Systems http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitrous_Oxide_Systems and the initials caught on as a generic name for nitrous oxide (N2O)

Yes, NOS is the contraction of the full product name: Nitrous oxide systems. However, Nitrousoxidesystems isn't quite as snappy and "hip" as NOS, and the logo sticker on the bottles only says NOS, so thats what's caught on as the accepted term.

When I worked in the music business people used to call me Hoover Junior, I never knew why cos I never did housework in my life. Now I'm in the marine business perhaps Dyson Stowaway might be more apt.

cracking effort by the Kite Surfers, I guess if the only lives they put at risk where there own then thats OK, Loved the diagram from Prarie Toober
