Can I Make These?????
 
Hey,

Is it posible that I could make a SuperCharger or a TurboCharger for my Nitro Engine? Does someone already make one?If so where can i get it?


Thanks,

Rob

I know u should never say anything is impossible but forget about it. Nobody has made one that works. LOTS have tried. We could go on and on about why it wouldn't work but we done that before. Look a few pages back and find the thread dealing with turbo and superchargers. Just forget about it. A properly tuned engine is better. nuff said. IMO, the only benefit of having a working one would be saying you have one and it's the truth. I did try servo taping a whistle to my nrs4......didn't work.

Servo taping a whistle, Classic! LMAO:D

:confused: :weird:

Better than a turbo
 
Just run some 30% Nitro (really) makes a big difference in power.
If you race in the Expert Nitro classes, you just about HAVE to use 30% to keep up.

Damn, that must be some awsome stuff(30%). Seems hard to believe nitro content make so much of a difference.

It has not been unheard of for racers to use 40% Nitro at some of the bigger races (in their .12's).
30% is my personal limit of comfort.
Works Great in hard to start Lawn Mower engines too (no kidding). Just pour a few ounces into the tank with the Gas. :nod:

Yeah, bumping up your nitro content will really increase performance. The engine will run faster and cooler. On the downside there is engine wear and tuning. In my opinion, there is a narrower tuning window the higher up you go in nitro percentage.

Like popsracer said, 30% nitro is the fuel of choice at my track. Luckily I just happened to have my engine modified so keeping up with 20% is no problem unless of course I run into the other guys with modded engines which I think everyone also has. Doh!

I think i'm going to make a forced air system...

They make one

They make one.
 
Sure do but does it work.....NO. Pros never will add up to the cons. If that Picture is real....i bet that engine runs real lean. Bottom line learn how to tune and you'll get better performance than any forced air system out there. Besides, it cost $149.99

popsracer 03-11-2003 08:12 AM

Just something to think about.
 
ANY type of Engine, if you increase it's power output, will be subject to increased stress and wear. There is always a trade off for increased power, even in Electric Motors!.

Fiream;

If you've got the Skill, Money and Ambition, Go For It!!!, design and Build your own Super or Turbo Charger system. Then post it online and tell us how it works. :D

It doesn't have to work to sell it, only look cool. I'd like to see the outlet pressure increase over atmospheric.

Okay, Ithink i came up with something that works guys.... I went and got some clear hose and a Siren Whistle, from my local party store... Hooked them up and I think it works? The Whistle thingy has a Fan inside it to compress the air and make the siren soundand everyone knows that Super and TurboChargers make the same sound.... I don't know i'm posting pictures, you tell me.... Oh I did test it, the motor runs and the fan inside spins...
