    "Race" starts after 2 minutes of poorly executed burnouts. Skip to two minutes exactly if it starts from the beginning

    Okay, am I the only one that laughed when they tried to put out the fire with their shirts? "No, no, keep doing that, it is no way spreading the flames. Your shirt will put out that massive fire any second now."

    I mean, yes it sucks. But I laughed. I did :(

    not sure a fire ext would have done much since it looked to be a fuel/NO2 fire. It could have knocked it down while it was still early but it looked like foam was what was needed. First thing he should have done was shut the bottle off, 2nd was grab an extinguisher. I have had people laugh at me or ask if I think the work I did will catch fire when they see I have a small one in the pass compartment and another small one in the trunk. I think its funny anyone that would ride around with gallons of gas/No2 and other flammable crap and hope their shirt and mountain dew will work.....

    [MENTION=11896]ttocs[/MENTION] I really think the mountain dew would have taken care of it but nobody would go get it!

    It probably would have helped if they closed the bottle valve. It sucks, but its funny!

    I don't think if he had a full 2 liter with a pack of mentos to help get the distance would have done much. Funny enough it looked like the fire blanket on the bottom of the hood caught fire. I thought that was made so the plastic pins would melt and it would fall on the motor to help smother flames but it looks like it was feeding the flames.

    Again though people a $20 fire ext might have saved this car.

    I actually helped a guy put out a carb fire in his s10 rock crawler one day coming home from drill. Luckily. I had on my FRACU's that day (Flame resistant army combat uniform) I took my top off to smother it out, and the guy told me it was gonna catch on fire. I told him they were fire resistant, we are about to see if anything in the army actually works like it is supposed to.

    Dang that guy was lucky you stopped! And I guess the uniform top worked ;) Seriously, lucky guy. That's like me having an engine fire and and a race car driver stops to help, and he's like "oh, good thing I have my nomex suit on, let me take it off and smother out that fire for you." I hope he was really appreciative :)
