os.18tm is 150 dollars and hpidrifter is right. the .18tm is about the same power as the 3.3 but a significantly noticeable gain compared to the 2.5R

if you dont know why a supercharger will not work, read [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_5796062/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm]this[/link], it explains it fairly well i think.

the supercharge is not the best descission in the word for a 2 stroke motor at all for a 4stroke yea they are great but not the case in a 2 stroke beacouse in a 2 stroke you dont have the oil pump pumping oil in the whole motor like a 4stroke does a 2 stroke is verry simple machine it has a 0 through 2 piston rings in the little nitro world it done not have any the motor is lubercrated of the fuel with a blend of oil base lubs. when you add on a super charger you are forcing more air into the motor and no mater how much you think you tuned the motor right you did nto comensate for the much more air you are forcing in the motor at high rpms on a 4 stroke you can run one no prolbum beacouse you do not half to worry about making sure you have the oil provided to the top and bottom end of the motor. you can ajust the carb to make it be tuned in just right. but im not saying you cant run one on a 2cycle motor & nitro motor i just would not recomend it at all.

I think everybody has it pretty well covored here. I would just get a big block if I wanted more power.

yeah, get a good pipe to go with it instead , its the correct way to boost the power of a 2 stroke engine

a bigger pipe and an air filter from an 1/8 scale buggy, it allows more airflow which will give it more power...
