    Would be more impressed if I saw a remote control gas powered engine!




    Speaking of which, anyone have a gas powered rc car? or truck? or anything for that matter!

    320 on motor with an iVtec motor is nice. should be enough for 9s in a good chassis.

    Not really. I don't know much about this shit, but torque seems low.

    It's a small engine that will find it's home in a lightweight car. It doesn't need any more torque than that.

    Okay I'm going to say something controversial because I have to go to work and want a long thread to read when I come back.


    This engine > 99% of all engines because it represents the pinacle of internal combustion piston engine development. I don't care that it doesnt make rediculous amounts of power, it's only two liters. The materials, techniques, parts, etc applied to this engine are astounding in their technical aspects and make this engine very respectable and impressive IMO.

    Fire away :wavey:

    Ok, that's like saying...

    "what purpose would that engine have? It can't rev past 9000 RPM's without blowing itself to pieces."

    Drive it where it makes power. The car that engine goes in will be fast.

    Flat Torque Curve = HP throughout the rpm range.
    Peaked HP and no Torque = Only HP in the top end, and jack shit everywhere else.

    "No".
