Damn Ricky, that's cool. How exacly does it work? Do you have to run the motor super rich N/A to compensate for the nitrous? I run a Fantom .15 in my T-Maxx with 35-40% nitro so it goes pretty good now. I wonder how much faster it could go? :devil:

No video yet. Still working on it. The engine revs higher and force more fuel in to the carb, by pressurizing the fuel tank. I till you it is almost uncontrolable. I myself have crashed into wall, climbed up a fence, flipped over backwards countless times, and rolled over in a turn to many times. We were all laughing when this thing was being built.

Wow I never really thought of the added pressure on the exhaust side. What kind of head temps where you seeing after a nitrous run? I'd deffinatly be up for trying this. I only get about a month out of a piston and sleeve anyway, so I have nothing to lose. :angel:


How long do one of those bottles last? Can I hook it up to a regular 75lbs bottle to refill it or do you need one of those Whip Cream N2O refillers?

hahah i didnt know every one on this forum was into rc cars too. I got a thunder tiger TS-4N with all the alum. Hop-ups and a .15 EVO motor. its not running at the moment as I Spun off second gear (threaded on to the hub and red loctited in place) and I stripped all the teeth off the rear belt and cog, Damn High Horse Power engines. The thing was uncontrolable, It would change gears and start going sideways.

Not sure on head temps. At first every glow plug, gone after just one hit. My guys in the ship were greedy and wanted to rotate the earth. After about 10 plugs and alot holy sh--s. We changed the design and it started to fly, only burned a plug every once in awhile, Now no plugs burn at all. the nitrous lasts for abot 20seconds. just long enough to bounce of a tree or two. lol.
A month sounds like you are running to lean a tune up maybe. Not sure not a RC guru, I just built the nitrous kit for it.
We use whip cartgiges.

cooool.

if you have one, i would swap over the kit from the truck to a touring car.... lower center of gravity, still 4wd... but it could take the speed alot better and more controlably...(kinda)

just get a BIG parkinglot.. lmao.

Hey Ricky, tell the guys to pick up some O.S. R5 plugs (they are black in color), might have to order them straight from O.S. They are a real cold plug made for high nitro and high compresion. I've had great success with those holding up in the wrost conditions.

As for my pistons and sleeves, I do run the truck slightly lean when on pavement. The really big killer is the 40%, I also only run one .002" head shim so the compression and timing is pretty crazy. Also, a 44,000rpm road race motor wasn't really meant to be pushing a 4X4 truck.

Keep us updated when the kit comes out. :)

Damn that sounds serious. We are running a cold plug O'donnell 99 plug. Is that cold?

Just kiddin I would be one of the first to do it! I would be the big kid in the parking lot smiling from ear to ear cause I just kicked the rod through the block on my .15 awd parking lot racer. But boy did it fly till that happened lol!!!

Yeah who needs N2O when you have nitromethane? Id just up the compression and the mixture.... What would REALLY be cool is a turbocharger!!! ;)

Got a kit for the weedeater. ;) Lets see one 15lb bottle, 1 DF5 Bottle valve, -8 feed line, super shark solenoid, Yepp that should take care of the weed eater. Also available for lawn mowers, and kids go carts.. LOL :burn:

Seriously costing on this kit is looking at 200.00 or less.

I rigged up a N2o setup for my t-maxx years ago, but it never ran right, yours looks awesome compared to the jerry rig crap I tried! when it did work half-right it was totally uncontrollable, but boy did it squat and go! :)

01-26-2005, 11:00 PM
Would be nice to see if some one can maybe try and sale the N2O kit. I know they make superchargers for them. (which i heard are crap). I would be willing to hook it up to my REVO and see how much it would take to blow the motor. Looking into a .28 or a .30 soon anyways..

The kit should work the same on a gas power RC. I bet it would be controllable with gas then Nitro.

You talking about the Fairly new REVO? Its not bad, but then again this is my first Nitro RC so i cant really compare it to anything else.. Its fun racing cars doing 40 - 45+ on the soccer field next my house.. Some of their faces are hilarious.
:eek2:

Just got those tires and rims in, cant wait to put that thing in the snow. Gonna shoot some nasty rooster tails.

if this is your first Nitro RC, then my suggestion would be your local hobby shop. you'll pay SLIGHTLY more, but when somthing happens and you dont know why, or what to do, theres someone you can get help from.

Nope not me :( :cry: :bang: ... They do not let me out much, keeping me a dark hole. LOL The one at the show was a true direct port. ( to controlable) muffler flying off, stuff burn, back fires, burnt glow plugs, but man that thing while on it would fly... Felt like a top fuel team out here after a run.
The new ones are more like a dry kit, alot more fun had to fired some of the fuel crew oh well. :)

Even if the kit was not so "controlable" it still was very nicely done. I couldnt belive that a auto company would bother doing such a thing, i think it is pretty cool. NX I can tell is a very well ran company with good products im now on my 3rd car with an NX kit and have never had to much trouble with any kit :) .

I went over to a friends house a few years ago, one of the guys I race with. He was in the backyard weedeating. He had a I believe 10 oz bottle duct taped to it. Sounded mean as hell. He said that every so often he burned them up, but he just kept the receipts and kept taking them back to Wal-Mart.

another great tip if you're doing long replys is to select all and copy before you submit it.
that way, if it screws up, you didnt lose your whole post....

We already have built 2 more prototypes. One going to the machine shop the other is for testing. :) At least that is what I am saying it is. lol

There is a company making kits but they use a one shot CO2 BB gun type bottle. The ones that you put put a pin in and can't refill.

This would be a good match for my custom twin RB C5 dominator. :devil: I need to take some pics and share them with some of you speed freaks. I think you would dig it.
