Up to 20% power increase.* This ultimate device is a new generation of accessory for VFS-2000 and KSC-1200F.
Just replace existing 'Shotku Diode' to Hyper Booster.
Features: Increases efficiency of the motor. Decreases the noise. Longer motor life.
* Performance will vary depending on the condition.

I raced against one of these boost things and laped the poor fool ,,pulled him on the straight and in every curve.. one thing I noticed it was fast in the pit...I ran a monster with blue springs 767 brushes that I cut special and kicked his @ssssssss.
Individual testing should show some diffrent result's... And he never came back to the track again...no lie!! I think yoyur better off with COM DROP'S..

Well.. how can you blame the boost thing for the other guy losing. A boost thing on a crap motor is still a crap motor. That plus it sounds like mb racer would have kicked that guy's @ss regardless. Now we need more useful info. I am curious too, what is this stupid thing? A shotkey diode in a fancy package? perhaps.

Isn't it just one big schottky diode?

Or does the same thing just supposedly better?

Default It is certianly some type of film capacitor

From the picture it appears to be either a Metalized PolyPropylene(MPP) or an Metalized Polyester (MPE) Dielectric capacitor. I would need better pictures to tell for sure.
