Marc Birkigt of Hispano-Suiza invented the DOHC 4-valve layout around 1912. Direct injection has been around forever, though F1 regs have fuel shot into the top of the velocity stack. Pneumatic valves are nothing new and have little use elsewhere. The current engine is not much more than electronically regulated 70-year-old technology.
Bring on the rotary valve and alternative cycle engines. Wouldn't the attention from genuine engineering advancement be good for F1? Why have they been banned for so long?
I an going to make this thing clean of both polution AND POLITICS which is far more difficult. Lets see if I can do it without some pen pusher stopping me. ....
N Smikle, I would love to see some imagise of what you came up with. Can you post them on here for me to look at and we can discuss the difference regarding my design and yours. I am interested in the problem you had on strength of the head.
