    1/4 Scale V8 Engine

    Check this out:

    http://www.aeromarinerc.com/index.ph...d=54&Itemid=76

    It is a quarter scale V8 engine (a running model) made by Aeromarine. It is AWESOME!!!

    I'm not sure if it is meant to power a boat (as they are in the boating aspect of the RC business) or just to sit there, run, and look cool. But either way, as I said, it is awesome!

    *Edit* - If you want one, you better order soon, as there are only ten left!
    Oh where'd you go, Joe DiMaggio?

    First off....that's insane! Secondly....is it just running directly out of the exhaust ports on the heads? I can't really make out any exhaust but I bet it sounds dirty with a nice set of pipes.

    So have I. The difference is, THIS ONE'S FOR SALE!!!!!

    Although I can't afford it . Maybe one of the guys on here has deeper pockets than I do (well, I'm sure most people on here fit that category , but...) and can purchase (or as they say in this price range, "acquire" ) one and can post about it in great detail so we can drool over it.

    How crazy would it be to build a dune buggy size maxx from the ground up. Easy to do for someone with access to the right stuff and with lots of funds.

    The price on those are rediculous. You can buy a 1:1 chevy 350hp 350C.I. V8 crate motor for around the same price.

    Me I'd rather have the 1:1 motor.

    It is very cool. I've seen a true working scaled down version of a Ferrari, which is very impressive.
