Default People getting rid of their nitrous tanks

I have been hearing of more and more people selling off or removing their nitrous setups and not using it anymore. I get that it can be expensive if you're always having to refill tanks or because not a lot of places sell nitrous to refill them. I think that people are seeing it's better to do a turbo or procharger than to use nitrous. Soon you will probably only see it in drag racing instead of street cars.

Personally, I think nitrous is a great option for those that don't want to heavily mod their car. I'd add nitrous to the Avalon for a quick boost, but I'd never throw a turbo on it.

Just think over a course of a year how many times you get a bottle refilled if you use it a lot. That's a lot of money that go towards a turbo and have constant power.

I raced my Tib alot, that's why I eventually TC'd it. But, I would never do it to a daily.
