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.

One of the first Hot Rod engines. The Buick Nail Head.

The odd valve arrangement gave this engine a unique look. While not as sexy as some of the F1 engines it did power quite a few famous cars.

I really like the Hartley V8. Long time ago I dreamt of fusing 2 bike engines together into a V8 :-) Then I came along this one.

Based on 2 Suzuki Hayabusa engines. (Cylinderheads, pistons and conrods). Block is made in house.
