Do a little research on how forced induction works and then look at how a RC engine works and you will see it cant possibly work.

I suggest do a search for turbochargers and superchargers and nitrous oxide. This topic has been discussed so many times. So many people with different pictures etc etc, The only one that has a video that I have seen it at work, is the Nitrous oxide. So far I have not seen a super charger or turbocharger working to benefit in power yet.

well then what you want to do is real easy. And will work. Don't believe what the skepics say.

install a real big cold air intake coming out over the body work.

The drive the car off a cliff at least 2,000 feet high.

When it reaches terminal velosity your "blower" will be at peak tune.....

Nitromethane in larger percentages will produce the same results as a turbo or super charger. Instead of increasing the airpressure via compression to delivery more O2 to the engine, nitro does it in liquid form. However, regardless of how you provide more oxygen to the engine, you just can't increase the air pressure via compression or add more nitro without modifying an engine to produce more power as a result. Some mods with increased o2 delivery are: Increase fuel delivery to take advantage of the additional oxygen, reduce the compression level so engine doesnt' self destruct, port and change timing etc...etc..

well obviously you'd have to tune the engine with more fuel to account for more air if you put a supercharger on it.If you don't tune it and just put it on and run it,first of all you're an idiot,and second I bet running through a whole tank lean as hell WILL destroy an engine.I'd question something the next time that guy told me anything.


...and one other thing,how do you change timing on a glow engine?

The only way you can superchage a 2 stroke is if the whole engine is compressed, like if the whol engine and exhuast outlet were running in a compressor tank. The only thing it will do is pump all your fuel out the exhaust. You can lightly compress the air to eliminate the resistance of your air filter, but thats about it, but it will still need some vaccum to idle good.

Its a stupid idea. If you want more power just get a better and bigger engine, not like you would need all that power anyway. Common people were talking about supercharging/turbocharging a NITRO powered engine. If it ever did work plan on it only lasting a 2 tanks of fuel.
