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.

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

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

dual motors 1 for front and 1 for rear

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.

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

But so is the current consumption!

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.

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.
