Such things are common in US in underground racing, but on street imagine when you are standing at a traffic light bumper to bumper.

Misfire systems look cool, but you'll be asking for trouble with our cops...fines, bribes and
they might even confiscate the car

Guys,

The product is available here in Bombay for approx 4k. Can fit on any vehicle but will work well with a turbo or NOS setup.

the flame throwers do not work like that....there is a button and whenever you press that button or switch there is a thing attatched which burns your fuel and gives out fire from your exhaust...this is what i have heard

The spraying fuel flame throwers are pretty expensive. the cheaper ones are basically spark plugs along with an ignition module which fits into the tailpipe of the muffler and burns up whatever unburnt fuel is coming out providing the flame effect. Cost about 6-7k in delhi.

Baddie i have a set or two with me let me know if you need it.
