Just wondering if its ok to spray all year long :) It gets kinda cold around here.

The car has long tubes, ORY, and a bullet w/turndown, lid, PT4000 stall, and a window switch to prevent hiting rev limiter on the bottle.

I have sprayed in cold weather plenty of times, as long as your bottle pressure is where it is supposed to be.

Ive sprayed at frezzing temps before, It just takes longer to heat the bottle.

The posts are right on. As long as you have a heater and the bottle is the proper pressure you will be good to go! Though on cold roads traction becomes an issue!

Had a nitrous solenoid freeze up on a 33 degree night. It wouldn't completly close after a run. First time this ever happened to us.

Ive heard of the oposite, when the solinoid was too cold, it actually wouldn't open, but it was the n2o luckally.

I had that problem also, but it was from too much bottle pressure. In the summer right after we filled the bottle, the solenoid wouldn't open. Called NOS and they said when you exceed 1200 PSI this could happen. About two weeks ago when it was 33 degrees outside, after the pass, the solenoid wouldn't close all the way. After we closed the bottle and let it warm back up a bit, it was fine.
