Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
BrianZuk records the track-only Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, 1 of just 20 that will ever be produced. This is the full length video (uploaded a sound clip prior to this) which shows multiple angles of the exterior of the Sesto Elemento, the wheels, Exhaust, steering wheel, etc., along with a few Start Ups and the Sesto Elemento driving on the road. What are your thoughts on this Lambo?

World smallest V12 engine
Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.
All credits to him.
Banks Top Diesel Dragster: NHRDA Nationals
On March 6th, 2010 the Banks crew tested out the rail's new "Stroker" 427 cu. in., twin-turbo 7.0L Duramax engine at the NHRDA Nationals in Wittmann, Arizona. The numbers for this trip out were 7.670 @173.54. We were a little faster back in April 2009 when we ran 7.17 @ 181.08. We've also run a best trap speed of 190MPH with the car on a separate test session. All those runs were with our twin-turbo'd Duramax, and now we're getting set to hit the track with a supercharged configuration. Stay tuned for that! More info at www.bankspower.com/topdieseldragster
Power-TEC 92269 Wheel Arch Reforming Tool
The new Power-TEC Wheel Arch Reforming Tool is designed to roll out damage on the wheel arch lip and adjacent panels. It is also used to role back a wheel arch lip to give clearance when wider wheels and tyres are fitted.
F1 Turbo - The most scary race cars ever (Feel the torque)
Brilliant footage of formula 1 driver Johnny Dumfries in the 98T Renault F1 turbo John Player Special. On the circuit in Adelaide he is in 11th place. Listen to the torque of this remarkable Renault F1 engine. You can "feel" the power when you turn up your speaker volume. Nothing is compared to the real thing obviously.
These drivers were genuine heroes with no fear at all and a big big heart. Listen to the engine noise and look at the skills the driver need to have to keep this beast on the road. These engines had up to 1400 Bhp.
4 Stroke Engine
Edit: I know Im spinning it backwards. There was an arrow that misled me when I took this video. This is an example of a 4 stroke(Otto Cycle) Heat Engine.
Visible is the cylinder with surrounding water passages(cooling system routed to radiator)
Valve train, which is control by the two cams attached to the smaller gears, and the crankshaft which is attached to the larger gear and is connected to the piston through connecting rods.
If one pauses at the end, the Otto Cycle chalkboard work is visible, where the isothermal and adiabatic processes required to produce the net work are expressed.
(Taken from Giancoli Ch. 20) The cycle is as such:
a)the gasoline-air mixture flows into the cylinder as the piston moves down.
b)the piston moves upward and compresses the gas
c)the brief instant when firing of the spark plugignites the highly compressed gasoline-air mixture raising it to a high temperature
d)the gases, now at high temperature expand against the piston(in the power stroke)
e) the burned gases are pushed out to the Exhaust pipe; when the piston reaches to the top, the Exhaust valve opens, and the whole cycle repeats.
a, b, d, and e are the four strokes of the cycle.
There is a minor discrepancy in the mechanics of this particular demo; it's cranked the wrong way.
