Nitrous seems more useful for hard pulls, like in drag racing. As wa-chiss says, it's a short term boost, still good for drag racing, but not much else. I don't see people using NOS on the track or courses for auto x and drift. I do see it at drag events and FnF street races. Maybe, if you get it and use it during drifts, you'll be able to perfect the controlled 360 spin instead of the classic 360 spin out?
