Cannonball Run: Fiero, NOS, Water & Jessie Combs = MythBusters Tonight!
So, I got this email from Holley talking about NOS and skipping a car across a lake on MythBusters. It comes on tonight…read on for more info. Enjoy.
“Tune in to the new episode of MythBusters, on the Discovery Channel tonight (Dec. 16th). The crew is going to test the Cannonball Run movie myth of skipping a car across a lake. Rather than test it with a Lamborghini they have opted to use a Pontiac Fiero which needed some assistance to get up to speed. Thus, we provided an NOS nitrous kit for the show. We have been told that they do show using the nitrous, but we don’t know if the NOS logo will show up. Either way, it should be good for millions of viewers to see the benefits of nitrous oxide injection.
Former co-host of Extreme 4×4 TV, Jessie Combs, performed the nitrous install. She has been filling in on several episodes while Kari Byron is out on maternity leave. Thanks to Jessie for involving us and congratulations to her on this exciting time in her career. Will the myth work? Find out tonight! I believe the episode is called “Hidden Nasties”.
