    The kit comes with flywheel, belt, and the rest of the supercharger. It is engine specific though because of the special flywheel and mounting.

    they say it adds about 5-30% more horsepower depending on the engine, and they make different models for different engines.

    The company is called R&B Innovations. The superchargers are nice units and have some hefty design. But there is only one problem, excessive fuel consumption. I talked to them about it and they did agree about the fuel loss. But considering that 30% more power and looking as a 1.2 HP engine you are looking at a 1.56 HP motor after supercharging. That aint too shabby. The only other thing I even questioned them on was the belt and slippage. They told me that the belt would last about a year or two depending on conditions that it is run in and they are considering a belt with teeth.

    Yeah, sorry it was rb innovations not products, but close enough. The 30% isnt for all engines, although the hobbyshop where I work has not had any complaints about the we sold, so they must be doing something.

    Somebody just came out with a NOS system for nitro engines, Jag RC. That would be an eye catcher in the pits.

    Speedo that is a sweet engine.

    Hey tim you meathead the engine in that pic is a 4 stoke you dufus. If you had any real intellegence you would know that. I keep waiting for you to tell me where we can meet so I can show you some experience. I have a nitro MT from HPI. And I will SMOKE anything you can pretend you have. Just name the time and place. And a phone number so I know you arent gonna try and send me somewhere you are not. Don't even talk to me about knowing the difference between torque and HP because its your dumbself that has no clue. Otherwise we would not still be having this 1st grader arguement. If I had to educate myself on what horserpower was I probably would not have had to call you an idiot in the first place. You retarded, beaten red-headed stepchild. You should have stayed in school. And let this be a lesson to all of you who do want to drop out. Or if you have graduated elementary you should go back and lean at least some math skills. You silly and retarded post of a horsepower formulae could be figured better by an ethopian with a stick and no sand to write in. You are the dumbest person I have ever met. And I have been around the world twice. Thank you US ARMY. Before you come up in here pretending to have any intellegence or a car that does over 100MPH, throwing around a formulae that makes no sense, posting things that have nothing to do with anything, and after all that trying to make me look stupid,... pick up a book and read. First use the dictionary and look up idiot, you'll find a picture of yourself there. Then move to Moron and find the picture of the person who gave you that silly formula. Just who do you think is more retarded here you or the people that read this forum. Don't you think that anyone that can read is apt to figure out how full of crap you are. I'll bet you get lost in your own house. I mean my god, how can such a dumb person be allowed to breath. Please do not reproduce and infect the normal genepool with whatever you may call "your intellegence". If you have already done so I am sorry for your children.

    Maybe you should try to set your tachometer to a V8 instead of a 4 cyl
