Rotary Vane Engine proposed to power Russian hybrid car 'ё мобиль' (Yo Mobile).
Radial Air Engine
This is a video of a simple, model oscillating radial air engine I built in 2007. In this video I am running this self-starting engine with an air compressor.
The plans for this engine came from McCabe's model engine website (http://npmccabe.tripod.com/steam.htm). I made a slight modification by using ball bearings and an outer bearing to make the crankshaft more stable. The cylinders are steel, and the pistons are brass rod. Each cylinder has one hole at the end of the bore for the inlet and Exhaust port. The three manifold pieces are drilled for inlet and Exhaust passage of the air from the compressor. It is routed as you can see from the manifold block at the back where the airline comes in. The flywheel was machined and mounted on a rotary table to mill the spokes. The engine has very little output power because it runs on less than 10psi air pressure.
This engine was a fun build, but it isn't an efficient style engine.

Twin Turbo Ferrari Testarossa on Engine Dyno
Twin turbo Ferrari Testarossa on Engine Dyno. The motor is a 4.9L flat 12 which has been upgraded with EFI via a Bigstuff3 PRO SEFI ECM and twin Precision turboturbochargers. At this stage the motor is running 6psi Boost and has no internal modifications. We ran it from 3500rpm to 7500rpm and it produced 650hp and 600lbs*ft of torque. Enjoy!
Also I just posted a new video on my channel showing a walk around of the car with some of the new wheels and brakes mocked up on it. If you guys are interested check it out there.
Sleeper minivan beats riced Honda Civic on track
Because I get it a lot, yes, this was at PIR.
Just shows that a sleeper car can still put a Honda in it's place. This Plymouth minivan was one of the fastest cars on the track finishing a quarter mile at 123.42 MPH. Definitely not an easy task! Either way, it's always fun to watch some fancy Honda get his ass handed to him on a platter.
