Nitros allow you to skip the current word being typed by pressing your ENTER key. Up to three nitros can be used per race, depending on how fast you type. Note that using nitros will not increase your WPM typing speed, however it can provide an advantage to win a race, and collect better rewards and achievements.

Unfortunately this can happen if your network or internet connection is not very reliable, or you are behind a Proxy server (for instance at a school). Also, if you are using Internet Explorer, you can move to a better browser like Google Chrome or Firefox and this will often fix the problem as well.
Friends Races allow canned chat (pre-defined messages) for simple communication, however unfortunately we are unable to provide open chat due to restrictions in schools, which are a large user of Nitro Type.
