We tested several different configurations in various sizes and dimensions. I will post the dimensions of the production units as soon as I get them in.

Matt,
Please sign me up for 3 Octane Boosters when they arrive. They will be a great addition to my already proven Murfdogg Products and deliver even more of an advantage on the track!

Introducing: MurfDogg Racingís new OCTANE BOOSTER Power Control Module.
MurfDogg Racing has developed the OCTANE BOOSTER Power Control Module specifically for use with Tekin RS and RS PRO ESCís. The OCTANE BOOSTER Module replaces your stock Tekin Power Capacitor. Many top racers have been soldering 2 Tekin Power Capacitors to their ESC units for added performance.

The MurfDogg OCTANE BOOSTER gives you the performance of more than 4 stock power capacitors in a compact, user friendly unit. Unlike capacitors with radial leads that can break off in a crash, our unit has 3 surface mounted capacitors, mounted directly onto a circuit board for the strongest, best performing power module possible. Flexible 20 gauge wire leads allow you to attach the power module to the top of your ESC, or mount it remotely depending on your specific needs.

Why do you NEED the OCTANE BOOSTER?
- The OCTANE BOOSTER stores battery voltage when off throttle or under braking. This voltage is then used to increase punch when throttle is applied. Braking feel is also improved.
- The OCTANE BOOSTER lowers the combined internal resistance of the ESC/Battery unit under load. This helps you maintain battery voltage longer into the run, and helps your motor and ESC run cooler and more efficiently. You
- High power racing motors produce a ripple current onto the battery voltage. The lower the number of turns, the higher the ripple current. The OCTANE BOOSTER Module suppresses much of the ripple current, ensuring maximum battery voltage is available for the ESC and Motor for Maximum Punch.

Why not just run a BIG power capacitor?
- Size of the capacitor does not tell the whole story. More important than size is the capacitors ESR value (equivalent series resistance). The lower the ESR value is the better (less resistance). Our low ESR power capacitors are surface mounted for maximum efficiency and minimum resistance.

The OCTANE BOOSTER will provide racers with the maximum performance available from their Tekin RS/RS PRO ESC. Use of the MurfDogg OCTANE BOOSTER will provide the racer with more punch, better braking, cooler motor and ESC temps, more runtime, better battery voltage deeper into the run, and a very durable power capacitor module.

Available Early December - Part # OB-01 - Price $20.00
Will this have any effect on blinky 1s 17.5 ? Or just for mod and boosted?

Had a great day of Onroad racing, bettering our lap times consistantly by .3 tenths of a second using Murfdogg Synergy Motors and Murfdogg Supercharger Batteries, resulting in TQ and taking 1st & 2nd podium positions!

Matt - Please put me on your list for an Octane Booster and 13.5 motor (single-cell version) . I see Cameron Kellogg kicking butt locally with your motors.

We have a Complete Dominator suspension Upgrade Package.

We do make towers, front and rear, but our front shock tower is designed geometry wise to be used in conjuction with our other parts. Our towers have more adjustability, including droop adjustments and better shock angles.

Our Aluminum front arm mounts, with 10 degrees of kickup built into them, UNBIND your front end.... Giving you front kickup without shimming the crap out of yout front arm mounts.

And also included in our kit is our Dual Fan setup for the dominator. The complete MD Dominator conversion is $100, including upper shock mounting hardware.

Matt

Increased punch and better brake feel in all classes.

Another personal best in Outlaw Sprint at Teas Hobbies in Rochester,MN. 2nd in qualifying with 58 laps and 2nd in the main. Murfdogg 4.5 in for the night and it ran flawless. Heating issues were solved with Murfdogg fan setup for the Hustler and also gearing package. Keeping you updated. Keith Mix
