  • Well, it's different!

    People always seem to be coming up with new engine designs that are going to be so much better that the ones we have now. They just need some more money to turn them from vaporwear into metal, etc, etc.

    This is one of the most unusual designs I've seen and there's actually a running engine.

    I think an exhaust manifold might be a little tricky!

    I don't care whether it's practical or efficient ... it's still COOL! That would be a fun model engine to build.

      If that engine actually runs, which I doubt, it looks like a catastrophe just waiting to happen. Not just to itself, but the the bank accounts of the investors.

        lol - If any "investors" invest in it, they probably deserve what's coming. It takes "interference engine" to a whole new level. I don't doubt you could get a model version to run, though.

            Not to pop the bubble, but lets rewind about 3 months to our previous discussion of this and save a bit of bandwidth.

              If I had to guess.....

              I'd say too much time at the Cad and not enough time making things to know how impractical and pointless it is.

              That said...it's an interesting grapic.
