Best scale model running V8 yet!

This is the best looking, running model V8 I have seen. This guy really nailed it. Sounds good too.

That is without a doubt the best I have ever seen. If any of you guys haven't seen these little motors run you need to look them up at the next big show. They are seriously entertaining.

This one, all I can say is this is one guy who needs a life! He probably hasn't been out to dinner with the family in years!

Neat! I think it needs some "flywheel effect", though. It's too quick to stop when turned off- this manifests itself as not being able to sustain an even slow-speed idle.

Run a lawn mower w/o the blade and you'll see what I mean (if you can crank it in the first place).

Anyway, if this was built w/profit in mind, he'd have to get $100K to pay for all his time! lol

Ever priced one of these puppies? You aren't far off in your estimate!

Ho Hum, just another cookie cutter small Small Block Chevy. Should we demand a small Hemi and Ford to stay fair and balanced?

Amazing skill and workmanship.

LOL. I feel the same way. You almost feel sorry for the guy like he is Rainman or something.

Yes, when you think about it, that thing can have ZERO mistakes and is machined to another zero or two of tollerance compared to the boat anchors we build. Unbelievable.
