This is how much fuel is sent to each of 8 cylinders during a Top Fuel drag run.

Don't be so sure the thrusters won't work.

There have even been some studies done on the effectiveness of cold gas thrusters on motorcycles and cars as a safety measure to help with loss of traction and accident moments.

It's not that dangerous, and it's not difficult to make. It's literally just a compressor, a beefy ass air tank, and the right shaped nozzle. High schoolers could design a cold gas thrusters system, so I think a closely related space company that makes them quite a lot could help them throw something together.

I doubt they'll be used like a thruster though, more like an active downforce system that only needs to last long enough until passive downforce can take over and keep the damn tires firmly planted.
