RPM Nails the Big Ol’ Blower Look

Jul 03, 2014 1 Comment by

RPM just pegged the cool-meter with their latest accessory, a trick 5-piece blower and intake that instantly makes your machine look like it’s packing a whole bunch of forced-induction horsepower. Nice detailing (just look at it) with pulley splines, belt ridges, and a textured belt finish. RPM smartly molded the parts to sit level on a 7-degree hood slope, and installation is easy–just drill two holes. Very nice, and just $12 in chrome or $10 if you get black.

Mock Intake & Blower Set for most 1/8 & 1/10 scale Bodies

Are you into scale realism on your favorite R/C rides? Perhaps you just dropped some brushless / LiPo power in your ride and want to show off to the world that your car is “supercharged”. We have just the thing to make that happen. Our new Mock Intake & Blower Set will take the scale realism of your favorite muscle car or monster truck to a whole new level and show off that muscle you know it has!

The RPM molded Intake and Blower Set is finely detailed with such finishing touches as blower belt ridges, pulley splines and recessed butterflies in the scoop. Additionally, we made it simple to bolt it on to almost any hood that is relatively flat by angling the entire unit to 7°, a very typical hood slope. That means the blower unit will sit properly and accurately on a wide variety of applications. It all bolts together with only 3 small screws.

Each RPM Intake & Blower Set comes complete with all the hardware you’ll need to bolt it to your favorite ride (you’ll need to supply your own 1/8” diameter (or 3mm) drill & a 2mm hex driver) and even includes a wide support plate that bolts underneath the body to prevent hard impacts from ripping the blower assembly off of your vehicle.

You already know your ride is ridiculously fast, step up the cool factor with RPM!

Tech Notes: The RPM Mock Intake and Blower Set is for appearance only and is not a functioning unit. RPM warranty restrictions may apply due to the scale nature of the design. Please see the RPM warranty page at www.rpmrcproducts.com/faq/warranty.htm for more information.

    Hi there, can you get these in a bigger size to fit on an ordinary car bonnet?
