It will increase the velocity of a vehicle whilst it is airborne but will quickly drain from the tank if used whilst traversing a surface.
Nitrous will slowly regenerate as the player drives their vehicle but the rate of replenishment will dramatically increase if the player successfully performs dangerous driving acts or by passing through a Repair Shop.
The professional Jump Nitrous modification offers a larger tank capacity and will emit coloured smoke.
