Default Super Charger kit from RB Innovations

Guys;

I see 2 potential problems with this unit.

1) Our R/C engines can turn more than 30,000 Rpm's. At this speed, it would be very difficult to design a miniature Centrifugal Blower that would be very efficient at those speeds.

2) The drive Belt looks like a weak link.

3) Most Carburetor's are DRAW through and NOT designed to be pressurized. Some king of special sealing would be nesessary for it to operate properly.

If you are really good, you don't need to fake by using somebody's name to make others to believe you are related to somebody.

Must be a typo ... people should not smoke up when in the forum! Hahahahaa ...

I think if anyone wants to supercharge their engines then they should move from 1/10 to 1/8 and if you are into 1/8 ... well ... I have no comments.

OK
#1 My take on what wolf said
Quote:

is in referance to the company Rb innov.(riding on the shirttail of RB concepts).
#2 first mod i tired on my RC10 was a 'Turbo fan' induction type intake. While it did boost power some i tried doing it with an elect. motor driven Charger. The Drawbacks were xtra batt and elect motor weight added.I had the idea for the same beltdrive sys but without a lathe and mill I had to go with what I had.So i eventually Scrapped the whole project.
#3 Popsracer brings up an interesting point about Sealing the bearings. I ran across some bearings from Boca Bearings. They are ultra seal part # UU.www.bocabearings.com so I think that might fix the leaky bearing issue.
#4 motors can only turn sooo many RPMS. I think if for some reason you had to run a lower nitro content this might be benificial but we blow our motors up without supercharging them and when you supercharge your power goes up while your economy goes down. more pitstops.... i think that this Hop up would apply best to RC Drag racing alot moreso then in 30 min mains.
#5 Its not Race legal
Thats my 2 cents worth
