This is only possible now because of low cost computer chips to control them, in the mid to late 70s you had only 8080 and Z80, 6502, 6800... that would need a lot of custom circuits to control valves. I doubt even if made, it would be cheap or robust enough for autos.:lol
Great find though...the new ideas being investigated are amazing to me, who saw so little engineering improvements during the gas crises of the 70's.
Agreed, beautiful art but once it hits any RPM, that little jewel is going to fly apart in a million pieces.Interesting Ralph.
Did not see him put piston rings on during the assembly.
And the harmonic damper is huge for the size of the engine. Likely due to the method of making the crankshaft.
I would if I could. But I'm not into replica cars. I'd want the real thing, and they are a bit beyond my budget, damn it! If I had one, you'd see it on the track!That is cool and I followed a few other links to some other miniatures. Neat stuff. I have to ask though, if you are old school then why aren't you driving a real GT40 and not that modern replica ha?
