    Some here might have seen this already or want to ding the guy because it's pneumatic but you still cannot deny that it's amazing.

    It is not running on any fuel. It is running on compressed air.

    Compressed air is technically a fuel, as it is used to do work.

    Besides, there are compressed air cars: http://www.mdi.lu/english/

    1220 hours to build!!

    Thanks for posting, I'd not been aware of this.

    Not fluent, but there was a coolant reservoir provided,no?

    It is small, but there is still friction & therefore heat generated; it is air cooled then?

    That thing seems to have pretty high rpm's.

    Cool stuff, saw that last year. I bet he could make it internal combustion, figuring out the fueling would be tough but I'm sure that guy could do it
