Zenoah - boost bottle kit

Hi all.
Just bought myself a hpi baja 5b ss a week ago & aready have started looking at ways of getting more power.
Has anyone tryed using the R/C ZENOAH HPI BAJA 5B BOOST BOTTLE KIT MCD FG MARDER? Seen them on Ebay for around $90 US. Are they any good? do they burn the motor out?
Cheers

dont waist your money use the $90 towards a good pipe. those boost bottles don't do a damn thing but add weight to your Baja.

and Welcome to the forum.

ya, the only good was to set something like this up, and have it actually work is to design and install a Wet Shot of nitrous.

I found a nice pipe upgrade really adds some snap off the line.Iwent from stock SS pipe to a DDM v1 dominator and it woke the 26 right up

For the money

The bang for the buck is an expansion chamber.
