Hmm Not sure it would help if you listed what was in the NO-crap. I would search but am on slow ass dial up and not worth my time.
I will say Ive tried NO products and really got nothing out of them. Now I do like Power Drive but what are you looking for it to do??
For me its just more of a feel good kind of clear headed focused supp. That many of the contribs etc report aiding CNS recovery. I like it in the morning right when I wake up. Gets me going and honestly I like the taste kind of Orange cream like, Nice in the morning.
Now if your looking for something to really amp up your workouts etc, then head for Spike.
Just depends on what your looking for. Neither are loaded with the as you said NO2 bullshit.
Hope That helps,
