i will show you how to make a simple booster kit for RC nitro car using only a few easy to get items.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Items...
you will need
lighter(refillable is better)
Ball inflater pump adapter
Step 2: Putting It Together
First of all get a refilable lighter and take it apart so that you are left with the just gas chamber. most refilable lighters have a small tube that comes off it, you need this in order to make this.
get the lighter and the inflater adapter and carefully insert the adapter inside the small tube. sometimes the adapter may be to thick to get inside the lighters tube, if so just file it down to make it thinner.
Step 3: Inserting the Rubber Tube
pretty obvious, just put the rubber tube inside of the adapter, or if you have thicker tube stretch it outside of it instead.
Step 4: Fitting It...
this is slightly tricky because you have to line things up right and it can get hard.
basically you can see the servo arm moves as you pull the trigger on the control. you have to put the lighter on it so that when it moves it will push lighters arms and release the gas. Once you have done so you have to secure it down. make sure its not near anything that will get hot(eg the engine) otherwise you may have an unexpected explosion, lol.
just look at the pictures, should explain what i mean.
Step 5: Almost Done...
once you have sucured it down, just put the other end of the rubber tube in the air filter (you might want to tape it in place, don't block air flow).
Step 6: Finished!
now its fitted it should give a boost once you press the trigger all the way.
i would not recomend doing this because its bound to blow somthing up.
i havent actually tried it yet so i dont no what the outcome will be, but i dont really mind as i dont use my rc car much anymore.
it takes a while for all the gas to get sucked up so i would do this in a big open area.
im hoping for somthing like that aswell
