Turbo for Electric R/C??
 
hi, is it possible to add a turbo in the car? or something like 'overclock' the motor (just like overclocking a cpu)? or modify until like those car in movie' fast and furious, hav a add-on function to punch the car to higher speed?

r these possible??:smile:

yeah you can pour some nos into the motor it'll go alot faster

to top it off pour some into a crack of the speed control

give it a shot

Maybe you dont know how turbos or NOS works, but there would be no effect on the motor, except maybe some cooler running components from all of the air and nitrous bieng blown into nowhere...

To get that extra burst of power, buy a 6 turn motor, and only run it at 1/2 throttle, then when you want the burst, go full throttle.

Oh yeah, I wanted to add a LMAO :lol: :lol: to that reply :D

No no no....you have to rig up an extra 4 cell pack and have a switch hooked up that when you throw it, it adds the extra 4 cells to your 6 cell pack so its now 10 cells.....yeah and make sure that you use your Duratrax Streak ESC. Thats how you get your TURBO boost:lol: :lol:

Or use two ESC's so you get twice the power:nod: :nod:

:lol: :lol:

you kinda scared me for a sec. i thought it just posted a really crappy joke


you can use 20 cells if you like <-could do if your insane
get a 1 turn
i know theres no 1 turn but couldnt they make it????


the 2-speed thing is getting pretty crazy too. might wanna put that in. <-real by the way lol

lol 2 esc's
dual motors 1 for front and 1 for rear

they would have to be exactly the same lol which is impossible.:weird:

We have a twin-motor TA03, 1 front, 1 back.

Surprisingly, its not essential to have 2X *same* motors; the weaker one will just do less work. (There are 1:1 racecars that actually run 2 engines in the same fashion.)

Two motors does NOT mean double top speed. Top speed stays the same. :weird:

However the torque is the sum of the 2 motors'. :eek:

But so is the current consumption! :rolleyes:

look at an emaxx two motors.

1) Turbo. Firstly, what kind of "turbo" do you mean? A "real" turbocharger setup with impeller, compressor, intercooler, wastegate and BOV? You do know that that the so-called "turbo" RC gas engines are bullshit no?

2) Overclock. Brushed RC motors do not work on the clock pulse dear. A BL system does to a certain extend... but that is a totally different kettle of fish.

3) The "add-on" function in 2Fat 2Humourous is known as "nitrous" aka "laughing gas" aka "Nitrous Oxide (NOX)". fyi, in Singapore, NOX is a controlled substance, it cannot be obtained easily or shall we say legally unless you are a dentist.

whats the recepie for it lol

Put the spur gear on the motor shaft and the motor pinion where the spur was. It'll take some time to get up to speed but the car will go really really really fast. :nod: :lol:

i found taht making the mesh a bit tighter gives it a bit of boost...just a bit tighter than usual
