How is the polo that ran 9.47 doing so with no smoke? Nitrous?

All of these 3 cars run nitrous, my guess it comes down to the tune.

Pushing the air/fuel ratio beyond the point of smoking doesn't really add much power, but it is very easy to just add a bunch of fuel and hope you have the air/nitrous to burn it...

Proper tuning and mechanical setup can yield the same power without all the smoke.
