wankel turbo ski race boat
owner has opined, boat is going 105 here but has done 118! That's pretty
fast in a boat that size, especially with the chine walk it's doing.
Driving this would be like laying a 2x4 across a bowling ball and trying to
balance yourself, on ice!!! And people waterski behind these too!!!
Test Run - Twin Rotor Nitro Rotary Engine
Test run of my custom built mini Peripheral Port Rotary Engine. The engine
uses two OS 30 Wankel rotors, carbs and rotor housings. I custom designed
and machined the front housing, center housing, eccentric shaft, intake
runners and Exhaust. I began
designing and solid modeling the engine back in September '08 and recently
finished assembly after some recent tweaks. Most of the machining was done
on a mini lathe and a standard drill press. Now I just have to finish
tuning the engine and I will have a full video posted of it running. Just
happy to see all my hard work, time and money pay off.
