Thumbs up Check it, 1/4 Scale V8 Engines in R/C Cars

http://www.conleyprecision.com/

You gotta watch the video. RC gas never sounded this good!

Don't look at the prices though. You can buy full size V8 crate engines for that much

AND for a full 1/4 scale Cobra, I can buy the actual full size Cobra kit from Factory Five

Still cool though.

Being an RC geek myself, I have owned two of those. One was the regular V8, the other was the supercharged version. They are really fun, but really expensive (which explains why I don't own one now). The best part is that you build the engine your self. Yes, it really has 1/4 size pistons, rods, crank, valves, and everything else. Also, it actually sounds like a V8. Kind f higher pitched, like a european car or something, but still really nice. And talk about drawing a crowd at a car show.....

That engine has been around for a long time in different formats. It was originaly sold as a kit with lots of machining left to be done. Then over the years it has been refined to what they sell now.

Too expensive for me. I'll stick to expensive project cars I can actually ride in.
