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.

The rear mounted cam drive is an interesting variation.
In the thread dedicated to the Valkyrie some people were saying it wasn't going to be possible to do 1000hp from 6.5L.
As the Pistonheads article said: Job jobbed!
To be fair, Lamborghini's 8.2 litre V12 from years back, claimed 1100hp at 7500rpm,
& proved strong enough to win many Class One off-shore boat-racing titles,
so a ~20% smaller engine, running @ 25% more revs, really ought to be able to match that power.

IMO, punting a big race boat - hard - could provide a good durability test for the Valkyrie mill, too.
Weight?

Of?

If you mean the boat, heaps, if engine, well they're def' not as heavy ( in any way, ) as these brutes:
