Hey fatslapper might be onto something here. We have a new breed of drag-racing. Contestants line up and take off while spraying their fuel on the track. 3 seconds later, your fuel trail is lit and flames are now chasing your car. The whoever crosses the line first gets his flame trail put out before it reaches him. The loser has to run around town till he runs out of gas.

SPECTACULAR!!!!!! Yes kids, you can try this at home. Hehehe

I've always heard that you can just run it rich and that that would be enough to blow flames out the pipe, with a spark plug and coil as well of course. Anybody know if that works?

Car Jacking were (maybe still are) very bad over there, and the robbers would sooner kill you than look at you....this is not overkill as many would assume....it is also non-lethal...read the text...

I seen that on the TV. The driver has a little button on the floor that he can just step on hard and flames shoot out from under te car on the sides. I think they said some guy invented it cause there were a lot of road thefts that just stopped you on the highway and jacked your car.

How do you get flames to come out of your tail pipe?

A combination of about 50% jalapenos and habanaros mixed in some Cayenne pepper sauce will do the trick pretty well.

Sorry couldn't resist.

The price of gas isn't high enough for you?...

Not to sound like an old mother but "waste not want not!" I can't believe people still want to burn up more of their money and give the fuel companies insentive to continue to gouge us at the pumps, Even though it DOES look awsome .

Sorry for the rant but we just hit 95 cents/L CND (Thats like $2.80 US/gal!) My ***** sure hurts from taking that one up the ol' tail pipe!!!

The flame throwers i have seen use a hand choke,it takes a minute or so to get the fuel worked through the exhaust.I'm not sure how they fire the spark plug in the tailpipe,but when they do it will throw a 3 to 5ft flame.Now the guys that get serious use white gas,Coleman lantern fuel,in a pressurized container.When they get the fuel burning in the pipe they add the coleman fuel under pressure.I've seen a moving car leave a flame 50yds long and close to three stories high.Those guys usually lay a piece of fire retardent material across there trunklid.You can feel the heat from the flames in the upper rows of the grandstand at your county fairgrounds

Keep the extinguisher ready

Buddy,

If you value your life and everyone else's, don't do this...not to mention your valuable car too.

Maybe you could use a preheating coil and plug from a detroit diesel engine This coil has a motor in it and produces a number of sparks per second, The plug has a fuel line on it so you could run som (pressurised) fuel to the spark. We use this setup to preheat our tractor pulling engine.

Considering the most efficient gasoline engine only burns about 30% of the gasoline, you should'nt need any spark cut offs for your engine, you already have enough unburnt fuel running through those pipes.

But I dont know, I have never done a flame thrower exhaust.
