    270 Offy

    I'm hoping that along with the other issues that being scaled up brings that it may be possible to go for the 1 piece head and block construction too though the jury is still out on that one. I've watched many of the build threads on this forum with great interest and looked at several that I...

    270 Offy

    Terry, I have just about collected all the material needed to make a 1/2 scale model of this engine. In your opinion what would you change if you were able to do so due to making it on a larger scale? Any suggestions would be appreciated Jimmy.

    270 Offy

    Oil choice for these smaller motors isn't something I had previously considered to make a huge difference, once again I'm surprised 👍

    Porsche 917 flat 12 engine

    I worked for amg Petronas in 2014 and 2018-2019 too, they're still way ahead with the electrics and I would like to see them beaten to restore some competition to the sport hopefully this is the case 👍

    retiring to machinist

    Good morning (0840 uk) I like you have recently set up my own little machine shop in my dads garage as a project for him and me.

    270 Offy

    Amazing work as always, I have read this thread from start to finish several times now in readiness to starting my own offy but scaled x2 size. The end product is a beautiful piece of work and this has been the best thread I've read so far. Thank you for the insane detail and lengths you went to...

    Material choice for combustion engines and the limitations of homemade engines

    For consideration, there are numerous light aircraft engines out there that are based on the venerable VW flat 4 engine, not the most advanced machine by a long way. On ebay there's plans for making a flat twin from VW parts for a light aircraft, definitely worth a look then see about improving...

    DEMON 2X

    I've got several plan sets for various engines to start, whichever i end up doing is like to build a suitable vehicle for them, ive seen some superb rc cars with V8 motors in them but not one as big as yours, Should be a right beast indeed when it's finished!

    DEMON 2X

    Interesting build, love the idea of a 2x demon v8. Have you any plans as to what to do with the model once you've completed it? Jimmy
