I've never personally seen one, but if you want some info- www.rbinovations.com I think a lot of stuff about superchargers is already on here. Like Nitroaddict would say-The search button is your friend.

as far as i know....most of those Boost Bottles by MIP and the SuperChargers do not work. I have heard many reviews and they all say that they are a waste of money. If you want to try it go ahead and risk the chance of your money.

I never really understood those boost bottles. How do they work and what do they do?

boost bottles allow a place for excess fuel to go when letting off the throttle supposably preventing lugging at low rpm. The results are negligable if any at all. as for the SC - spazz said it - USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION

So it's a $190 chunk of aluminum pretty much.[X(]

I sure wouldn't spend that kind of money just to add more stuff to my truck and make it even harder to work on. WASTE!

i have a supercharger on my t-maxx 2.5 and its sick.i had a little trouble getting it tuned to my truck but i think i got it now i have the high speed at 4 to 5 turns out becasue the air to fuel ratio being changed greatly. the truck is far more responsive off the line and the top speed is improved noticably.

what what specific tuning, I run my stock 2.5 at the same settings...

/sarcasm off

These are all gimicks, dont listen to anybody who says differently. Even Xtreme RC said they barely noticed any difference with the RB Innovations model, and only god knows what long term dmg they do to your motor. Stay far away, money is better spent on a new motor.

The man speaks the truth, they are just preying on customers with no real knowledge base of the internal combustion engine other than what they saw on fast and furious wich was a joke from a mechanical standpoint. Buy a Sirio .18 with that 190 and have more power all the time and no extra useless crap on your car that is just weighing it down.

I know that they work on larger engines like 22-25 cc's, but for engines this small I dont think that they would work that well.

the supercharger would be ok on a 4 stroke, but not on a 2 stroke. if you want power from your current engine get a good tuned pipe.

RE: super charger
 
Supercharger won't do a thing for a non-valved 2 stroke engine. You have better luck getting more power out of a VTEC sticker put on your car.
