Default Nitro rustler and RB Inovations supercharger?

What do i need to install this supercharger. http://www.rbinnovations.com/product_p/rbk10545.htm

And is it worth it? Or do these cause damage?

That supercharger is 100% gimmick. That cheezy belt contraption probably creates enough drag to negate any supposed increase in power that it creates.

And I just saw the price... put that money towards a decent motor instead. RB Innovations junk is for suckers, to put it bluntly.

second after I posted it i read this http://monster.traxxas.com/showthrea...t=supercharger
complete junk. Understandable that it would just make the engine run completely out of wack.

I was just about to add that it would probably make the engine a complete hassle to tune.

If you want a VERY expensive paper weight then the RB innovations supercharger is the only way to go.
In all seriousness the supercharger will destroy your motor in a couple of runs.
