call the local cops



they will know all the rules, not just some of the rules that others may tell you because they dont believe that all the laws are fair.

I lived in Jacksonville and was pulled over, they searched my vehicle, (thought I was selling drugs) i.e. nice car.

Found the nitrous bottle... asked if it was hooked up, I said yes
He then checked to see if the bottle was open, He stated that if it's open it's automatically a street racing ticket and they impound your car.
Automatic bottle opener same thing.
If it's closed your just tranporting it, not using it and transportation of N20 is completely legal.

What do you mean same thing? If you have an automatic bottle opener and it is shut you are fine? Or if you have an automatic bottle opener it is considered open?

it sounds like it means, it would be considered open


and that would make sense anyways, from a law's eyes view

WHen I got arrested, I asked the cops all about n20.

They said it was legal as long as I was using it in themanner in witch it was intended (useing it for the car and not fuffing it). I asked if was ok if I used it on the road. They said yes, but why would you... I replied " To get up to the speed limit faster". They said as long as the tires don't spin (losse traction), and there isn't anyone next to me, then it was fine.....loosing traction it considered uncontrolable acceleration.


They also said that the bottle has to be mounted outside of the passenger compartment (in the trunk) and if it was a hack typ of car, there needs to be a blown out tube that vents the n20 outta the car incast of bottle rupture...and you can run the n20 line through the passeger cabin. The lines need to be run under the car.





Cops have been becoming d1cks lately over the past 5 years, so they might find some way to bust you when you have the bottle within 10 ft of the car, uninstalled.

I talked to the owner of a local hot rod shop and he said it was legal. I have been pulled over and I don't think the cop even knew what it was. He asked why my car was so loud and that was it and I drive a gutted wagon without tinted windows so it's not like it's hard to see.

I dont know for sure but from what i hear, here in Miami we have to have a special sticker or something to let people know that we are using it. I dont know for sure as it is only rumored along my racing friends. But since my community is a gated community I could ask one of the cops next time i come through here if you want. Hell just pm me a bunch of questions and ill ask the offduty lying as shole pig, i mean law abiding officer. Wink
