    Hey guys,

    I was browsing the other day when I came across this video of a scale V12 motor currently in development

    This peaked my interest as it apparently puts out 6-8HP and is clearly pretty **** small compared with the two or 4 strokes we see being used in kits.

    I don't know very much about V12's but it seems to me that itd be a very efficient way to go, and one of those rack mounted above the rear tyre would look pretty sweet :p

    Got a real lot of money?
    I mean REAL lot. And only need to go down the street a block or so (no cooling system). Go for it.

    it make that much power be cause it rev high, and i think it runs on nitromethane not regular gas
    be expensive as **** to

    I noticed that each cylinder has cooling fins, no water jacket, pump, and radiator.
    Must be intended for an RC application.
    Still, a V-12 MB would be awesome! Micargi stretch anyone?

    Yeah it is air cooled for RC as far as I am aware.

    The fuel would be expensive, the main thing I was thinking about is size.. the current systems are so **** bulky.

    With the RC engines, there are people and companies that build multi-cylinder RC engines using parts from the single engines. So they don't quite make all the parts, just the central crankshaft and related pieces--but it is still impressive, anyway.

    Also--to nitpick--I'd wonder if he made it on a CNC mill or a manual-control. "Making" parts on a CNC setup is largely a spectator sport.
