Default NOS should be Nitrous

NOS is a brand, Nitrous Oxide is the substance.

Ah, the beauty of brand-association. Even heard somebody ask for a Kleenax instead of a tissue? Same type of thing. It happens all over, but you are correct.

Haha yeah, it should be Nitrous.

NOS got spread around WAY too much after that one car movie that has a name that should NEVER EVER appear in these forums.

NOS has been used as a term Because the company that created it. I was using the term long before the movies cam out. I am not going to fight for the name to stay. I am just letting you know that I am not going to type out Nitrous Oxide System when NOS is the acronym for it
