well as far as i know, what they do is collect the extra fuel that builds up in the carb at idle so when you get on the throttle after idleing, you dont get that huge amount of fuel going into the engine, there for giving you more bottom end... correct me if im wrong... and they are also used mostly for 1/8th buggys, stadium trucks, etc.... hope this helps

they are designed to increase the volume of the crank case... they are a waste of money and dont bother buying one. You also need to tap a hole into the side of the crank case

What supra said can be true, fuel/air can be blown back up towards the carb or at least out of the cylinder creating a double rich condition until the excess fuel is burned off. The boost bottle or chamber just collects that excess fuel or helps keep engine from getting rich on ya unless if you want to mount them above to engine so that fuel can drain back into the engine. A lot of people say they dont' work or you will not notice any difference but I ran my fantom .12 rear exhaust engine, then took the boost chamber off and it didn't have as much bottom end and wasn't as responsive down low. Was as much of a difference as going from a slide to a rotary carb.
