Default What is a “triple turbo scoop crankshaft”?

I recently bought a LRP ZR32X nitro engine and in the user manual it says it uses a “triple turbo scoop crankshaft”. Does anyone know what it means?
Thanks in advance!

A turbo scoop is a slot on the backside (in the counter weight) of the crankshaft. A tripple scoop is just 3 scoops. The other 2 are small ones on each side of the crankpin
