Boothboy, Your right!! did you find it in a pocket mag or on the internet?

Its really funny his superchargers were very good, I saw quite a few when I was young! but the electric one stuck in my mind. I asked about the solid propellent one on a thread quite a while back! with a firing pin that was on a rail at Detroit Dragway in the early 60's because I couldn't remember the name. I think now it was an "Oberhausen" I cant say for sure though its been so many years I would really like to know if anyone is still running any style of his chargers?

Ebay! Jester I think your thinking about the Turbonique supercharger. They also made a electric supercharge as well as units that used exotic additives.
Turbonique
