A shameless image thread for the enginephiles

All that has to do with the power train, gearbox, clutch, fuels and lubricants, etc. Generally the mechanical side of Formula One.

Also may be related to DOHC config with total of 2 valves/cyl. Once you maximize valve diameters you end up needing to locate the plug off to one side or the other, so might as well do both sides.

195 hp/L, naturally aspirated K24. What sort of NA hp/L is common in drag racing? MotoGP & F1 peaked around 300hp/L, iirc.

Last of the motorcycle G.P. 2-strokes were making ~440hp/litre - N/A...

Current 2T developments have putatively raised max TQ output to ~15,000rpm,
thus an N/A ~140hp 250cc & ~560hp per litre.
