Looks like a turbo...some REALLY funky setup on an HPI on-road car. Check out all the plumbing. The exhaust actually directs back into the little "can" on the air intake. VERY bizarre.

Can't find any more info on this beast.

Yup, looks loke a turbo and the little box looks like a aftercooler.
Problem is, turbo's are powerd by exhaust, not the intake, if he is using the intake to spool the turbo he is loosing power.

Looking at it again, I can't tell what's going on! It is very concievable to utilize a turbo, but you wuld have to have a completly redisigned carb that richens fuel mixture when the turbo spools. If not BOOM! Detonation.8-0

How is it working? I saw it on the HPI fourm and never seemed to get a good answer for this.
