His second try
Did you all see what that guy had tried before this???? He had tried to power a used Boeing 737 with a Gogomobile 2 cylinder (50cc) engine. This time, though, I think he got the power/weight ratio a lot more reasonable!!!!!!!

That is hella cool! I love those old radial engines. But, having about 200 hours of flight time in radial-powered planes, my first thought was how in the world is going to keep that thing cool? I can't imagine he can drive it very long without it getting pretty hot. Of course, I'm sure endurance wasn't on his list of objectives for this build!! :mwink:

who need heating
who needs heating when you have a massive engine sitting a foot behind you? ..........with the windows rolled up and a bit of a drive i bet that thing would cook you

i would close off the rear of the car with sheet metal and hood insulation and get a massive funtioning roof scoop (not for the ram air effect just cooling) running the width of the roof and graft functioning hood scoops on to the sides of the car.
