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.

Pretty sure this was filmed at HPP in Brixworth.

How much TQ does it make though?

It's got everything people've been asking for in an F1 engine.

While I love the FR9,R07, the 3.0l V10s from F1, the C5/C6R 7.0L, etc, etc... Drag racing is where it all started for me at age 12. One class in particular made me fall in love with engines in general; the Mountain Motor Prostock engine. They make somewhere around 2200hp N/A and reach over 13.3L in displacement:

These things at full tilt in the prostock class would see 10-11000+ rpm and boy is it a sound. Love them.

Oddly I cant seem to find any good pictures of the Chevy engines.

I wonder if Coil-on-plug would actually make much difference to a top-fuel engine? Considering they burn their spark plugs up halfway down the track and are basically diesel engines after that....
The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.

Are there even coils that can keep up? Those magnetos are 44 amps worth of current a piece. The engines no longer have the diesel issue.

I did wonder about that.

Oh, how recently did they solve the plug burn out issue? Even 2 years ago this was an issue as far as I was aware.

IIRC it was mentioned in a conversation with someone I spoke with in the industry. The issue had been the material of the plugs but with platinum, iridium, and other things developed they were able to fix the issue at least for a single run.
