theres a guy up in Seattle that makes running 1;4 scale offy's that run that are for sale.
very neat and exact in every detail. see his adds in a Historic racers magazine. I'll see if I can find the one with the writeup on him. Neat shit. even made a testarosso 1;4 scales that ran. :eek1 very detail oriented to the extreme.
they have one just like that (cutaway) at the local air museum.
The Brothers wrote to several engine manufacturers with a request for an engine weighing no more than 180 pounds and capable of producing at least 8 horsepower. No one was interested in providing such an engine, so the Wright Brothers had to design and build their own. The four-cylinder Wright engine, built in their Dayton bicycle shop by chief mechanic, Charles Taylor, weighed slightly less than 200 pounds and developed 12 horsepower, or about twice the power of today's lawn mower engines.
As mentioned earlier. VW W12
Civic Hybrid. Very cool setup.
Can't forget the mighty Cosworth DFV
Here is your engine in a project from canada. This guy installed a BMW V12 in an Ultima GTR. Check out the video section. That engine sounds incredible at full song.
Link to the videos page, check out #4
well, except that a '6HP' lawnmower motor really can't output more than about 2-3 HP continuously, that 6HP is the instantaneous stall power. a 12HP aircraft motor actually DOES output 12HP continuously.
So very true.......
Except for Honda powered mowers.
my 'mower' has a 20 yr old Briggs n Stratton industrial "8HP" motor. This is rated at 12.7 lb-ft torque @ 2500 rpm, which I calculate to be 6HP continuous. But this is a WAY more substantial motor than you'll find on the typical consumer lawnmower, its a 19 cubic inch vertical B&S from the old school.
A couple of engines that changed the world.
homebuilt. 554 cc V8
What the hell is up with the coke can?
