Check this out, cool as heck!
That is one of the coolest things I have ever seen,
That was cool! Any idea on what V12 design it was based upon?
Very, very cool.
1. I wonder what kind of fuel it uses.
2. I wonder how long you can run it before it gets too hot or needs to be re-oiled.
That thing is sweet. I used to be into remote-control cars with gas engines. They were single-cylinder and ran off alcohol fuel (20% nitro-meth too). Tons of power produced out of something so small.
^^^ Yeah, I was thinking a mix of Nitro-methane.
When I was a kid, my best friend was into those nitro powered cars. Those things were stupid fast.
Didn't notice any gasket material or out of a tube... His tolerances must be tight.
Love to buy a basic kit like this to build with my little one.
Pretty cool but could of done without the music.
Very Cool!!! Thanks for sharing.
Looked like it was being 'motored' on compressed air (no ignition) so no combustion, and no heat.
Without pressure oiling, i'd squirt the hell out of everything after each run.
Cam gears were 1:1, not 2:1, so every downstroke was a power stroke.
Either a 2-stroke diesel (note the lack of spark plugs, ignition system, etc.) or as aircarver says, "powered" by compressed air. Don't know which, but if I put all that work into such a beautiful machine it would actually run on its own.
Still... what a gorgeous labor of love.
I work on Locomotives for a living, that's just amazing. Exactly what I do on a much smaller scale.
Awesome video! Thanks for sharing.
This. Very cool, but a crazy amount of time for a desk trinket.
