Player > Items > Hybrid > Metal nitro, gold
Introduced into a vehicleâ€™s engine through the vehicleâ€™s control
panel, metal nitro comes in magical capsules of soft metal. Unlike
technological racing nitrous, which releases more oxygen into
an engineâ€™s system to help the fuel burn, metal nitro infuses the
vehicle with a burst of magical power.
As a move action, you can crush a capsule of metal nitro into a vehicleâ€™s control panel, which increases the vehicleâ€™s drive speed and full speed for a total of 10 rounds. If the pilot fails to take the race action within 1 round of activating the metal nitro or fails the Piloting check to race from a dead stop, the metal nitro forces the vehicle to move its full speed immediately in an uncontrolled manner. If the Pilot fails the check to race, or the nitro activates in an uncontrolled manner, the pilot and any passengers take bludgeoning damage according to the type of metal nitro.
Metal nitro can be safely used only on a vehicle that has an equal or higher item level. If you use metal nitro of an item level higher than the target vehicleâ€™s, the vehicle takes damage after the pilot races or the vehicle first moves because of the nitro. The amount of damage varies according to the type of metal nitro.
The types of metal nitro and their speed increase, as well as potential passenger and vehicle damage, are as follows.
