...the design in the DB 605 was a main and a split conrod on the opposite bank . that on the one hand eliminated any bank offset but on the other hand was not practical for high rpm,s and the stroke was slightly different from bank to bank
i think any f1 vee engine ever had bank offset .
the F1 Martin engine conspicuously had no bank offset
btw not what was asked - but the various 3 bank F1 engines could boggle the mind even if their banks were all offset
the 605 - I'll bite
how would split rods 'affect the stroke' or the 'rpm capability' ?
(of course coplanar articulated rods would - arguably)
