Don't do this, you're asking for trouble.nos/86 said:you ever tried a torch ?? heat the bottle with it . just keep the flame moving and don't hold it in one spot . it works great .
A torch flame is extrememly hot compared to a bottle heater. You can weaken the aluminum, and there is a chance the bottle will fail.nos/86 said:
whats the differents in heating the bottle with a bottle heater (heats in 1 spot ), hot water (boils the nitrous ),or a torch thats moving (heats whole bottle )?
Then buy a battery charger.i know your NOT supost to but a crap load of people do . i'll do it . and i've got a bottle heater for both bottles in the car . and 1 for the bottle in my other car well . try heating a bottle at the track with a bottle heater you have a dead battiery in about 10mins.
Funny, I've NEVER seen anyone heat a bottle with a torch at any of the NMRA races I went to.against the rules , i've heard that but no one has ever said anything to us about it before . my friends race in (nmra,nmca,osca,outlaw10.5,nsca, ) races every weekend some where . in the sotheast . they'll be 30 nitrous car in staging ,i bet 20 of them are heating with a torch .
