I'm loving the increased power that comes from a supercharged, intercooled engine when the ambient temperature drops. Anybody else notice this?

Model airplane engines always run better in the cold as well. The cold air is more dense and as a result, more O2 gets in the combustion chamber and hence well, as you found out: vroooooooom ;)

Yes it certainly is a noticeable increase even on naturally aspirated. This coupled with some 4.10 gears and I think I can take Jeff:laugh: Man I wish I had super charger, nothing compares. Hope they come out with one for the R172 V-6:burnout:

I wonder how many have thought that.

ALways thought about getting something like this for The Ghost but Schwarzie might get jealous

Never happens!

Jeff wouldn't waste fuel doing flames for show.

Fuel is for combustion inside the chamber.

:wink:

He's very eco friendly, in his own way :D
