There is an episode wherein the power cables are damaged. In the latter case, this is mostly a short term solution as too much power will cause issues of its own and long term exposure to overvolting will reduce the life span of the device. Most importantly, the car was cheap - all the desired properties for any wannabe rally driver. The best GIFs are on GIPHY. McKay's solution? the controls for the subway are damaged from gunfire; since the emergency brake won't work Jack has another idea how to stop the runaway train. On the downside, the faster the projectile travels, the more friction it generates, causing the rails to heat up and warp. One (unfortunately? In another episode, a heavy snowstorm is preventing a plane from landing. TVTropes is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Turn up the power and it'll get scared and back off. Teraport area denial systems can be penetrated by a sufficiently large amount of energy, and, New moon? So, maybe real fire isn't the best idea for a children's toy.

O'Brien points out this shouldn't even work and could blow up in their faces. More power. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TimTaylorTechnology. This ended up being the main cause for the destruction of the Thunderzords at the beginning of season 3.

The solution was to shut down all the power systems and slip away on minimal life support and a single thruster pack. Related GIFs. And some people push the limits of processors, nudging into. The catenary on French High Speed Lines (LGV, linges a grande vitesse) usually provides AC at 25 kV, 50 Hz. In combat there are switches or software modes that will keep it running no matter what. Similar to a Stargate Atlantis example above, an electrical device at the end of a long cable may not receive enough voltage to operate correctly.

Similar to the military example above, many electric scooters have a governor to limit their speed and make them street-legal for rider more than double its maximum speed. The nonlinear distortion of amplifiers increases with the quotient of output-voltage and supply-voltage. On some planes, this just allowed the engine to be run beyond the normal RPM limit; on others, it might increase the turbocharger/supercharger boost; another design would inject water, a methanol-water mixture ('. The best GIFs are on GIPHY. Even missing or broken parts can be temporarily replaced by increased power. Air compressors can be bolted on, to.

It fails, leaving the ship doomed having just half of her power available.
In another episode, Tim meets his old college professor who is still wondering if it was the right thing to let him pass his finals. This works because radio jamming is literally someone else transmitting on the same frequency as you to drown out your signal; if your transmitter is powerful enough, it drowns out the jamming instead. Of course, if you really need that power, you can hack the ECU to not do this. The American "Big Three" car companies tend to take this approach to designing cars, often focusing on ramping up size and engine power and flaunting their. It increases both the concentration of oxygen, making the engine running hotter, and concentration of inert, increasing the cylinder pressure. This will result in a sudden and dramatic increase of revolutions. An example is the 2007 Nissan GT-R, which despite being heavier and having less power, can keep up with the 2009 Chevy Corvette C6 ZR-1 on the Nürburgring Nordeschleife as shown.

Either way, in his blog. If your radio station is being jammed, one of the best ways to deal with this is to crank up the power on your transmitter. Named for the lead character of the sitcom Home Improvement, who constantly tried to give various appliances and tools "more power." As mentioned in a couple of previous examples, nuclear power plants (and to a lesser extent conventional ones) have variable power output and "100% power" generally refers to the maximum output within acceptable parameters. Often that was enough to convince the enemy that the plane was a kill already and give up the pursuit. You'd think the solution would be to reduce the strain on that component, but no, the solution is to increase the power. Hydran fusion beams take this trope to the logical conclusion: They can be given so much power that they. Older Nerf blasters, which use compressed air tanks, can be significantly re-tooled in a number of ways. Can't outrun the bad guys?

Not to be confused with the occasionally-formidable Tim Brooke-Taylor Technology, or with needing more fire-power.

But before increasing the supply voltage of existing equipment, make sure it can actually take it. Apparently, nobody bothered to check the math despite all the upgrades that have been made to starship engines in the intervening years. It also worked as a psychological weapon; the Haha-Gerät spat out an enormous tongue of flame off the exhaust, giving an impression of the plane igniting. Permissions beyond the scope of this license may be available from thestaff@tvtropes.org. Inverted in the episode "Booby Trap", where more power simply fed more energy to the titular devices which held the ship immobile and bombarded it with radiation.

The former was used to make a "manly smoothie" that included beef with the bones still in and a brick as ingredients. It employed water-methanol mixture injection in the cylinder. It's called ". Most military vehicles have governors to limit the amount of power the engines are capable of achieving; and thus limiting the vehicle's top speed. Wanna fix that? The latter rocked the test dummy they placed in the seat to pieces.

Also played straight by the Bugatti Veyron Supersport. If your Applied Phlebotinum is broken, you can usually fix it by increasing the power. Heat sinks were not made for this kind of abuse, Command! In closely matched street races, try turning off the A/C and, in the case of a 2CV race, the lights. So it is possible to increase the sound-quality of audio equipment by increasing the supply-voltage. Tim wasn't able to get all the lights up without adding.

At one point in the first movie Stu invented The Reptar Wagon and tested it out, it shot fire causing these lines: Jet engines are also rarely operated at maximum power, because it will reduce their lifespan considerably (and use disproportionally more fuel).

The result is a giant magic infused raptor chasing him down.

Or maybe you're just sick of the moon and want to vaporize the whole thing. WEP (War Emergency Power) on American turbocharged radial engines.

Lampshaded in "Disaster" where Ensign Ro rewires a computer to be run off of the ship's phaser power lines. Today, the high performance CPUs and GPUs both perform self-overclocking when thermals aren't so bad to give you more performance. Russian car brand Volga used to have a ridiculously over-powered engine compared to the other properties of the car. which in its 2nd and 3rd phases undergoes 'power surges' which give it either a massive number of attack drones or a barrage of fire from every weapon it has. MORE POWER! Sometimes, this is subverted, and more power is a good way to destroy everything.In these cases, it may be time to Reverse the Polarities instead.

and and tim allen 7440 GIFs. "However, this typically - and on some occasions literally - blew up in his face. MiG-25 is basically this trope embodied.

The top speed of a space ship is totally independent of its design and mechanics, and is simply a function of how much raw power it has. The jury may literally be out) failed to kill Bill Cosby, though had better luck with its next owner.
