MR2 with kinner R-55 radial engine FIRST FIRE!

here she is guys, 18days to the race and she fires up for the first time. the idle speed was about 450rpms but it seems like it could go significantly lower. the experience was much more visceral in person than this video shows. I smell like oil and gasoline now.

here it is guys, a proper race. I only managed 20 laps with it which is less than stellar but i'm calling this good enough. I'm trading the engine for a turboshaft engine and I'll work on installing that instead. I did get the "most heroic fix" award at this race. sorry i took so long to re upload this video, the first attempt had a bunch of rendering errors.





Russischer Sternmotor - Russian Radial Engine Start and Run
Beim traditionsreichen Traktorentreffen in Burkhardtsdorf ist seit einiger Zeit immer ein großer russischer Sternmotor aus einer Antonow dabei. Der wurde natürlich auch gefilmt. Da es am Morgen sehr kühl und feucht war, machte er einige Probleme beim starten aber dann lief er. Typisch für alte Sternmotoren ist die große Rauchentwicklung beim Start, da eine größere Ölmenge in die unteren Zylinder läuft, die dann verbrannt wird. Der Sound war wie immer ohrenbetäubend.
