Model V8 Engine Running - Must See Video
Now this is Model Engineering at it's absolute best! Check out this bloke's website, this is one of the most insane things I've ever seen. He's actually hand-built a supercharged model engine, completely from scratch (and it's his own design). Watch the video of it running - it sounds like a top fueler!!!
Where the heck does anyone get the time and patience to do something like this???
By the way, there's a very detailed writeup on the entire build-up for those who are interested in the engineering side of it.....
AWESOME! Can I please have one!!!

i couldn't put something like that together without breaking the little fiddly bitsIf a man says something in a forest, and his wife isn't there to hear him................is he still wrong?

tell me about it, imagine how small the cam and valves and injectors would be.
not to mention all the rings and oil pickup ect.

I'd have to say they woudlnt be scale models of the real thing, they'd be whatever was available that worked...
But having said that ( and not having looked at the other older topic), i saw a web site on these engines before. They cast everything themselves! right down to the blower rotors etc!
Absolutely amazing if you ask me! The machine work must be SO miniscule its an art..
Good on them though.. great to look at!406 Cube HQ Coupe

after looking through the whole story, everything except the carbs and dissys seem to be scaled down replicas of an actual V8 engine.
tiny little valve springs, a working dry sump pump and a heap of other stuff.
it's just brilliant. and a hell of a lot of workIf a man says something in a forest, and his wife isn't there to hear him................is he still wrong?

Hah, that is bloody awesome. Would take so much time, and trial and error to do. But look at the results : O

thats unreal, I want one,
Would've been so much effort to build something like that.My car aint lowered...Ya fat mammas in the boot!!!

theres a guy selling them for $700 each.
