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.

gruntguru wrote:Interesting engine. It seems to have two spark plugs per cylinder so probably very high B/S ratio. Wide Vee angle too, 90 or 120 perhaps?
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...

Image

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

Ol' man Honda had a thing for air-cooling back then, even insisting that G.P. machines were built that way..
both bikes & F1...

No, it was sold in Australia & was raced in the Bathurst 6-hour enduro..

NSU ( Germany) Chevrolet ( USA) Tatra ( Czech) also built air-cooled cars - back in those days..
