Have you heard the screaming BRM V16?
The BRM V16 of 1950 was far ahead of its time, producing over 700bhp from
its 1500cc engine. The downsides of its advanced tech were relaibility
issues and rather abrupt power delivery. At 7250rpm, it has about 300bhp,
before all hell -- and over 700bhp -- breaks loose at 7500rpm. Sir Stirling
Moss reckons it's one of the most dangerous cars he's driven.

Vintage Racing - 1950s Indy Cars startup and race. LOUD!!!
Chris Ashworth records a series of 1950s Indy Cars at Michigan
International Speedway. This was a vintage racing event that was associated
with the Concours d'elegance of America, where these cars were on display
after this event.
This event was incredible! I got to wander in the pits and the garage area.
You will hear these cars starting up right from the tailpipes, and you will
see them driving on the track from the pits.

The Sound of BRM V16 (In-Cabin clip included)
The Sound of BRM V16 F1 car. This was and still is a truly amazing car and
motor. Built in the late 1940's and early 1950's, the motor was an
approximately 1.5 liter(1487.76 CC) V16 fed by a Supercharger peaking at 5.7 bar(82.7 PSI) of Boost and revving to an astounding
12,000 RPMs and producing approximately 600 peak HP. I can honestly say
that this is the most beautiful sounding engine I have ever come across.
Some of the pictures in the video are not of the actual BRM V16 engine
itself or the same car producing these amazing sounds, so please do not use
those pictures as basis for comment on the motor design or layout.
I personally favor the In-Car portion of this video which starts at about
F1 Sound Battle
V12 vs V10 vs V16. I re-made my famous F1 Sound Battle video after my old
account (DRF73K) got deleted. Vote for your favourite sound!

Rap 24 hp semidiesel, second start attempt.
This video illustrates what happends when these two stroke semidiesels run
out due to too much oil in the crankcase. With my left hand, I block the
injection pump, so from that time the engine run on lube oil only, no
diesel at all. I have heard lots of stories about this from decades ago but
this is the first time, to my knowledge, that it is captured on video.
Luckily we had blocked most of the air intake prior to starting and ended
at somewhat over 1000 rpm. Max operating rpm is 425-450. With full air
supply, I would guess this engine would reach thousands of rpm and I could
only guess what would have happened then...
The electric glowplug short circuited so we had to rely on the propane
burner which had slightly low temperature. In this startattempt, we used an
acetylene burner and got the glowplug bright red. The crankcase was,
unfortunately, filled with too much oil so the engine was running on its
lube oil from the crankcase instead of diesel. Still some trouble with the
fuel injection, doesn't feel right when injecting diesel manually.
