Default I want flames!

OK here goes, Squiddy or not...

I have a lot of people in my area who drive 80bhp 0-60 = 10s cars which pop and make flames.

I don't so much want the pop, but it would be cool to see a flame shoot out.

My two bros exhaust does make pops and the ocasional flame, but I want to know if there is anything I can do to make my bike spit a flame on command.

I've heared if you put a screw grinded to a finely sharp tip, it will get so hot due to the surface area being so small that it will ignite any unburnt fuel.

Have any of you heared this before or have any reason to think this or anyother methods, proven or not, have worked.

I want to try do it without spending lots of cash on a afterburner flame kit etc, but there is a hole in my link pipe which is for the O2 sensor which could possible fit a spark plug, but I do want to try and stay away from this if possible.

I have no power commander or other fuel/air mix devices so if anyone knows if it can be done, please share the info.

Cheers guys,
