These are the RPM Chrome Mock Mirror Turbos (2) for use on most 1/8, 1/10, or 1/12 RC vehicle bodies.
You've heard of twin turbos, but have you heard of mirror turbos? If not, you’re in for a treat! Mirror turbos take the lack of symmetry out of twin turbo set-ups by utilizing one clockwise rotating turbo and one counter-clockwise rotating unit. A set-up such as this leaves the engine bay clean and balanced, unlike a standard twin turbo set-up.
Now you can show off a mirror turbo system in your favorite 1:8 - 1:12 scale ride with a pair of RPM Mirror Turbos prominently perched on your hood. Our turbos have a cool, recessed design yet protrude out of the hood far enough to show the detail that makes them unmistakable as anything other than turbos.
Each kit comes with both a left side and right side turbo unit. Each unit is a 4-piece design that includes a turbo, a base plate and lock plate. The final piece is selectable. We include a pair of mock air filters and a separate pair of mock velocity stacks so you can opt for either a race or street set-up.
RPM Mirror Turbos are sold in a mixed color pallet. The turbos and velocity stacks are silver / chrome while the base plates, locks and air filters are black.
Tech Notes: RPM recommends installing Mock Mirror Turbos on relatively flat hoods with minimal curves and contours. RPM Mirror Turbos are for appearance only and are not functioning units. RPM warranty restrictions may apply due to the scale nature of the design. Please see the RPM warranty page for more information.
Alternate Set-Up Option: RPM Turbos may be bolted directly to the hood without the use of the recessed plate but shorter mounting screws would be necessary (not included).
