    Now the Fireturd may be retiring, what new project car would you like to see sacrificed in the name of science?

      why wasnt nitrogen used? also wouldnt it be more effecient to sandwich the dry ice in between the outside of intake tube and some insulation wrapping?

      how about using NOS to cool the air going into the mix? or better yet......

      Dry ice is just frozen carbon dioxide so you're just cramming carbon dioxide into the engine

            You need to try putting the dry ice separate from the air stream going into the motor. Dry ice is solid c02 and c02 doesn't burn

              Not to be a smart ass but dry ice is carbon dioxide... not oxygen...

                My take, It went faster because there was air being forced into the fan pushing air in.

                  try running a Oxygen tank through the intake. Dry ice is CO2 which doesn't help combustion. Pure Oxygen on the other hand.....

                    Turbo it with eBay turbos now, paint it flat black. Make it trashy lol. Should be really fast, and a good test to see if eBay turbos have actually come a long way from what they were when they were first being sold. They used to be trash, but I've heard that they have gotten better.

                          It went faster because first cooler blew open, allowing proper A/F ratio

                            The most commonly known flammable liquid is gasoline. It has a flash point of about -50° F (-65° C). The ignition temperature is about 495° F (232(232° C) [sic], a comparatively low figure."

                            There is such thing as too cold and the fuel wont atomizer correctly.

                                    Cold air = more power. Cold CO2, or any CO2 really = less power

                                        You should have used some kind of medium to transfer heat instead of just letting the air past the dry ice. Dry ice is frozen co2, if those gasses get mixed it reduces the oxygen concentration, which reduces horsepower. Basically the same as running at high altitude.

                                            You're right it would be dumb, but we did solve a lot of questions with this one off experiment.

                                          CO2 injection. Might as well use a fire extinguisher for boost.

                                          Adding co2 will never work. Also even if you did cool the air without adding the co2 the stock ECU would need time to trim before any changes could be measured

                                                  1st launch was a bit hesitant and second was not PLUS the fuel container blew open so, perhaps that was a factor.

                                                    @Hoonigan I AGREE. What I'm saying is the reason the second run was faster is because Brad didn't hesitate like he did on the first jump at the start meaning it had nothing to do with the cooling rig/setup. He just did a better run.

                                                    Dry Ice produces Carbon Dioxide which means there was less oxygen getting into the cylinders...
