    RE: RC Turbocharger

    We've been so busy answering your question we forgot to answer the question you asked but didnt write down.

    My suggestions, be a little nicer...
    And try this thing called google.Bet ya didnt think of that did that??

    Go back and reread this reply, YOUR post is now becoming one of those attitude and absolutely useless posts. You are now being the guy trying to make him sound like a fool. You too need to ease up.
    Take a step back and chill out.
    To me, I am starting to personally find replies like this on this subject to tick me off.



    Savagecommander even came back and was way nicer this time and posted an answer that was not attacking but completely answered the OP's question.

    no turbos. RBinnovations had a super, but thats all ive ever seen on the market.

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    There were a couple of guys on this site that made turbochargers for a modle airplane and were somewhat successful. but never actualy flew with them, but they did start up and run.


    What makes the supercharger so inefficient and not rewarding.

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    I guess I'll help as little as I can. Those tether car dudes use to run turbos on their two strokes... They didn't sell very many because they didn't work, but occasionally you will find them on ebay. They were made by a company called sparrow I think, or something like that. Pretty much only designed for larger .40+ ignition engines. I was gonna pick one up just to have it, I have seen them go for around $50 or so. But they are true turbos that strap around the exhaust outlet.

    Just like the OP, you need to quit taking things so seriously
    and in case you forgot, this is the freakin internet, so if little things like this bother you then I can't imagine how you handle the real world

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    Yes, this is the internet, but on this site, RCU, there are rules. I suggest you go back and read them again, especially since you are now calling me and the OP names (i.e. Drama Queens).

    You succeeded in you goal of pissing people off, me too now.

    I just reported you, as it is my right to do so according to those rules.

    In the real world, there is another concept that YOU need to learn too, and that is mutual respect.

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    a turbo that straps? I think i found out why they didnt work. did you ever look at the cox carbs? most were a set type to run at one rpm I.E one needle, so i guess you cant expect much of a tuning margin when dealing with equipment like that.

    ON TOPIC

    I have heard of superchargers for these engines, but not turbos. The engine will still start up and run with a supercharger, but hearing from people who have used them, the performance is sub-par. I personally have not used one, I am just going off what I have heard.

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    the design left something to be desired to say the least. it was more like a blower for an air conditioner shrunk down... good for moving air, but not compressing it.

    ya i would LOVE to see a 4 stroke boosted! and yaim seein more and more that turbo's are a "touchy" subject around most rc folk haha but thanks for the positive feedback that i did get!

    O.S. used to put superchargers on a few of their big 4-strokes. A turbocharger would work, but there are problems that will arise with these engines such as oil for the turbocharger bearings.

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    Why it doesn't work? Simple. No valves. To understand this in the simplest way possible; block one end of a pipe (this cap is your closed exhaust valve), pour fuel in. The more fuel you pour in, the bigger bang you will get when you strike a match. Now remove the cap on the pipe (open exhaust port as per nitro engines), pour in fuel. Congratulations you need a new pair of shoes, but now you understand why forced induction can't work on a valveless engine.

    It doesn't work with rotary valve two strokes because the fuel mixture must enter the crankcase first, then the intake is closed off before the mixture is shot into the cylinder. Turbochargers do work with reed-valve two strokes, snowmobile guys have been doing it for years.

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    Being that I believe that anything is possible, if you set your mind to it, I try it and see.
    My theory is that if you have enough pressure coming in on the intake side and it's not able to flow out the exaust side, you will get a pressure build up. A simple way to look at this theory is to see what it takes to make a pressure washer blow water at the 1000 psi plus range. Put pressure on the intake end and restrict the exaust end.
    Again, it's all theory, but being Iam an open minded guy, I still feel anything is possible.

    P.S. This is all MYOPINIONand you may disagree.

    Your closed, echoing tube is basically describing how a tuned pipe works. This is something that is already in place with rc nitro engines. They use the force of the returning sound wave to force some of the fresh fuel flowing into (and out of) the combustion chamber back in. The flaw in your theory is that there is only so much back pressure that is created. Once that is overcome then all you will be doing with a turbo is forcing air flow through the cylinder while both ports remain open. The only time the turbo will be doing what it is designed to do is the split second that the exhaust port is closed while the intake port remains open. Unless there is some way (valves, reeds) to close off the exhaust port to allow the combustion chamber to pressurize you won't realize much gain. What you will do is complicate the entire intake system, alter the tuning and change the exhaust charicteristics. It's a far eaiser thing to simply increase engine displacement to gain power.
    Any technology, sufficiently advanced, will appear as magic

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    all in all the engine ($200) and your home made/bought turbo/supercharger ($150) will give a less significant power gain (if any) over a $350 motor. and the more expensive motor will last longer, and look nicer, and be lighter. so in truth there is almost no point.
    So glad to have a savage again. Time to make it handle less like a savage.

    turbo works with piston port and rotary just fine...actually the reeds are the most difficult to setup..... Guys have been running turbo charged sleds for many years now on all formats of 2 stroke engines.....

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    No one has brought up 2 stroke diesels yet so I will..... ALL 2 stroke diesel engines have some sort of forced induction (usually a supercharger, sometimes both a supercharger and a turbo), but they require it otherwise they wouldn't run. A 2 stroke diesel is a valved 2 stroke, but uses actual exhaust valves like a 4 stroke would. They have a port in the sleeve to let in the air, and an exhaust valve that opens near bottom dead center after the piston is below the intake port, and because they have forced induction and they are direct injected, the only thing coming through the intake port is air, which being forced in shoves out the burnt air/fuel mixture from the previous combustion out the now open exhaust valve, and as the piston travels back up and closes the intake port, the exhaust valve also shuts and the cylinder has a fresh charge of air, and talking about what happens next would be redundant. If we had fuel injection systems for RC's, a 2 stroke diesel engine would be very doable and practical. But fuel injection systems for RC's are not very practical at this stage so neither is a 2 stroke diesel. If in the RC world we had 4 stroke engines with an oiling system other than the fuel itself, the exhaust would be considerably cleaner and a turbo would be practical, at least for aircraft use since lag isn't much of a concern for them because they maintain fairly steady high RPM throttle. For land based applications in RC, a supercharger would be more practical than a turbo because there isn't lag with a supercharger.

    RE: RC Turbocharger

    You guys need to check out what some of the snowmobile guys have been doing over the last 2 decades...there have been thousands of turbo 2 strokes built in all different engine configurations, rotary,piston port and reed..........These days they have gone to turbo 4 strokes, but before that there were plenty of turbo mountain sleds running around..........Just wait till snowmobile CVT clutch systems start surfacing in RC..

    check this out...this was custom built in Canada for A.J. Loverings top speed nitro car....Snowmobile technology is many decades ahead of RC technology !
