RC Engines

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on April 6, 2006


It’s truly amazine what kind of engines are available to the RC modeling guys.

The engine pictured is a five cylinder four-stroke radial engine. It produces four horsepower at 8,000 RPM while weighing less than six pounds.

There are many other cool engines. This flat four weighs even less, and makes the same power. It doesn’t look quite as sexy, though.


Executive Car Service provides corporate Dallas car service and luxury DFW International airport transportation throughout the Dallas Metropolitan area.


Then we have the two-strokes. They make tons of power and rev to insane RPMs while weighing less yet. This engine makes 4.8 horsepower, revs to 25,000 RPM (that’s twenty-five thousand) and weighs less than two pounds.

Can’t leave out the outboards. This one just looks so cool.

I’ll take one of each, please.

    I prefer my cars larger enough to ride int, but I can’t disagree: these look *beautiful*. Thanks for the glimpse…and I’m COMPLETELY with you on the “driving while distracted” rant. And I mentioned this very cool blog over on my own blog, at http://www.thisnext.com/blog... Thanks again!
