    Question how could you make a boost chip?

    okay nitros have nitriuos so what about electric

    what i was thinking was hook up two batts in parallel to the esc and hooked up in series to the chip
    and the chip would be controled by the channel 3 and when its switched on it delivers the series voltage straight to the motor for 5-10 seconeds
    but i don't know how to make it or what to do

    but it would have to be brushed setup like the xl2.5 cars

    FYI, nitrous does not work on nitro RC engines. Much like the superchargers do not either.

    Steps for simplest method:
    1. Get brushless
    2. Pull trigger farther


    What you are suggesting is much more complex, expensive, and prone to failure than the above.

    i agree those burst of power wouldn't be friendly to the esc plus idk where your going to fit 4 batteries in a mini.

    oh ah
    i was figuring to hook up the to batt's in parallel to the esc and hook the same batts in series to a servo switch and that sevo switch would go inbetween(or intercept) the esc and the motor and swtich between the series votage and the control of the esc for the motor

    sorry if i wasent clear had to rush again

    even if you hook it up to series packs then cruise along at about half speed. then just hit full throttle you should be very happy with the results. or just get a radio system with throttle curve.

    I think this is possible:

    Two batteries in the chassis
    The second servo slot can be used for the "boost" servo
    The boost servo operating a switch to connect the second battery in series

    You would need to find/create a servo operated switch
    You would need a 3 channel Tx

    *I am not to sure this is safe for LiPo (it could be, but I don't want to put any brain power into it right now)
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    a friend of mine did something like this a looooong time ago on an old stampede. he wired up a servo driven contact switch, and put 2 extra cells on board, wired it up so when he flipped the switch it would make contact to the other 2 cells. so with the switch off, it was running 7.2 volts and with the switch on it was running 9.6 volts. it was actually pretty cool. he could be cruising along at top speed, hit the switch and pull an instant wheelie.

    IMO this is a bad idea... if you have that kind of technological understanding and are that concerned about speed your probably already running the fastest setup you can... putting in some kind of over voltage system is just going to fry something. even if its just for a few seconds. The complexity, cost and weight are all prohibitive factors. You'd be better to just get a brushless system and a radio with dual rate adjustment... program the dual rate to %50 and have a switch set to %100... that will effectively limit your throttle to %50 (or whatever you choose) and flipping the switch will give you %100 throttle. Same idea, different method and you won't be hurting anything.
