Boost bottle ??????

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I found this company selling boost bottles for nitro engines. I was thinking about trying it on my nitro bike, but I really don't fully understand the concept. If the bottle is not a vacuum and already has atmospheric air pressure of 14.7 psi 1 atmosphere absolute, if the hose and bottle are already full of air at 14.7psi, how does the extra rich gas mix even enter the hose let alone the storage bottle. It would have to vacuum out the air first, then vacuum in the rich mix. I don't quite get it. Someone please explain the physics behind the system.

thanks John

It looks like an empty Co2 cartridge.... I remember seeing these back in the mid 90's.... Not sure as well how they work... Sounds interesting

Re: Boost bottle ??????

I can't see something like this working. Doing a quick Google search has pretty much everyone else saying the same thing. Looks more like a gimmick than anything.
