has anyone had much experiance with flamethrower kits? do they go the extent of ruining your paintjob? and is it legal to have them all conected on the street aslong as they're not turned on?

They are not leagal as far as I know, well common sence would say that they are not, but when I was working at caulder park a few weeks ago there was an old chev that had it and It was pulling out on the highway with it commin out the back sooo never know.

For the record his were pointing at the ground and his paint looked mint!

HI
these flame kits dont work to well on late model efi cars as the emission control systems + cat converter dont really allow unburnt fuel to travel out the exhaust . not saying that there wont be unburnt fuel there but no where near as much as a car with a nice rich carby..

u can buy afterburner or dragin breaths kits that porduce there own gas and light it itself via a small bunsen or spark...there round the $1500....as far as paint damage so long as the jet if straight starts slighlty after your exhaust im sure it would be fine...if aimed slightly down eve beter.....im pretty sure they are like neons and so long the car is stopped and off main roads then they can be on....but since this unlike neons can seriously injure someone they maybe a complete no no.

keybanger...

basically reve the car turn off the engine pump the pedal lots and hard then flick the ign back on all while car is moving or stationary

idea is to get fuel into the exhaust and get the engine restarted before it stops spining :)

Lol, i think keybangers go out the window when you've electronic solenoids controlling the fuel going into the cylinder, frank!!

Great fun tho... many an exhaust blown open on a holden gemini!!
