Introducing The NOS Moonshot: The Most Powerful Nitrous Plate On The Planet

Look what the guys are up to at NOS!  They’re no stranger to big shots of nitrous, topnotch controllers, high-flow solenoids, and all of the other race-grade tech that puts drag racers in the winner circle every race weekend. Nitrous plates, big and small, are their bread and butter! After the unveiling of their Crosshair plates, which pack 2 stages into one compact piece, they got to thinking: “Why stop at 2 stages?” Well, to fuel the hunger for more power, quicker elapsed times, and an underlying thirst to stay the top dog nitrous manufacturer, they set to work building the most capable nitrous plate system in the known universe–maybe beyond. Meet the NOS Moonshot!

Of course, adding this much power potential to your racecar takes a little bit of prep work. For this reason they recommend upgrading the fuel system to a Holley VR2 series fuel pump, which can support 4,400 horsepower, enough to easily provide for the engine on and off nitrous. Holley also recommends making sure your safety gear is up to spec, such as verifying your roll cage, helmet, and race suit are in line with current SFI and NASA high altitude requirements before launching on your Apollo mission drag strip pass.
