    I know what you're thinking- "man, another Jalopnik reference... What the hell is wrong with him?"

    Hey, it's got a Fox, so it's relevant, right?

    you can put an 1/8NPT plug in that port on the bottle and plug it off.

    LOLOLOLOL!

    Some people just have no perception of danger. It's like these guys that will weld around flammable materials without a fire extinguisher handy or change the oil with nothing but a jack holding the car up on a sloped driveway.

    Use some common sense, people.

    I was at Kennedale about 15 years ago and one of my fellow racers was in front of me heating his bottle with a torch. I was a little nervous.

    I will admit we use a torch in a pinch but I always keep the flame moving not to create hot spots
