Stumbled across this today and having done model aircraft when I was younger I can’t help but look at this with a dropped jaw.
That is an operational scale V-8 engine. How operational?
- Fuel Pump
- Runs off of standard 87-octane
- Electric start
- Water Pump and Jacket
- Oil Pump
- Working supercharger
- Functional carburetors
- Distributor and Spark-Plugs
Naturally aspirated it pulls about 5.5HP at 9500 RPM. The supercharged version runs about 9HP at 9500 RPM. Cost’s a pretty penny though and I’m not that much of a gear head. Though if I had a classic car I’d probably buy one to make a scale model replica. It’s cost prohibitive for anything I could think to use it for but I can’t help but look at it and think it’s freaking neat. Find more info here.
