An eaton electric M62, Wow...learn something new every day. I thought it was so funny when I saw it. Almost as good as the Geo Tracker the other night. (Kicking myself for not having camera with me.) Had a NHRA style supercharger hanging out of the huge hole in the hood. The three orange butterflys....worse part...it WAS actually functional.

2hp is not enough, maybe at idle there will be enough flow to create some pressure (probably not even enough to register on a boost gauge) but remember the vac motor works at a constant speed, so when you step on the gas you need more air and the fan setup wont keep up and you'll end up just sucking air around the fan. HOWEVER!!!!....,,I have seen a set up using 3 starter motors hooked to a common shaft run a centripidal supercharger. The creator of this had experimented and got it to work with a 12 and 24 volt system using around 6 to 8 batteries located in the trunk. Since it was an all on/all off system it had the effect of a nitrous shot but as rpm'* increased and the demand for air increased the level of boost declined. He said on a 1.6 liter motor at 2000 rpm it might make 12 psi but by 5,500 rpm it might be down to 2-3. Also since it only moves a constant amount of air it works better on a smaller motor. If the same setup that was used on the 1.6 liter was used on a 2.5 liter it might only get 5 psi at 2000rpm and run out of air at 4000rpm or so. It was an interesting article in some ricer magazine several months ago. The guy had been loosely experementing with electric motors for R/C cars since the mid' 70'* while trying to break the R/C car speed record. He found that he could make the same amount of power from 3 smaller electric motors as one big one which weighed around 50% more than the 3 smaller ones. He is trying to market them for people with small motored cars with little aftermarket. SO, the electric supercharger can be made to work but it takes alot more thought than finding an old shop vac or heater motor.

OK so I hooked up the shop vac today and WOW !! got my 60 foot times down about a full second looked like I could be on the way to a high 11 second Quarter mile time, but as soon as I got to about 100 foot the cord ripped out of the wall socket :( tore up my wall and I lost all that POWER !!! Im buying more cord tomorrow



LOL Yeah right when pigs fly
