LOL surfer. That's an airplane engine man, you'd probably need two super-fans pointed directly at the head for it to last more than a minute. :D With that HP though, you could probably do it. And a generator too. And a 500 watt stereo system on a trailer. :D


I think these are the coolest RC engines ever. 5-cylinder, 4-stroke, ringed piston engine. :D

Definately a strong second, the first genuine RC rotary. Both, of course, are airplane engines.

And of course, my 4-cylinder, 4-stroke, ringed piston engine will totally whup a' on your 2-cylinder. :D (Actually it won't, 4.1 BHP, but it's so cool no one will notice.)

I think the coolest engines can be found at www.quickdrawengines.com. The lowest power one is like seven and a half horse, and the biggest one is about 28.

One look at that and my first thought was "air-cooled VW engine."
