Default not planes, but look under their hood

I know its not R/C related, but thought ya'll might enjoy this. You seen the tractors with multi engines in them, no how about this. They put Radial engines in them, plane related it is, and totally awsome!!!

Enjoy,

Dango, Why are you apologizing to one person that did not like it? P.O.T. ! (Water upon them)[>:]


Heck, there are 100's of 1000's of us out here that have the brain capacity to enjoy many aspects of many things. Heck, I don't like Baseball, but there are millions that do. That's what makes life interesting.

aw man, those poor radial engines get beat to hell Those things usually have a very big fan in front of them to help them stay cool, but doing all of maybe 20MPH at full RPM and pulling a huge load, man they gotta be hurting. Thats radial abuse!!

We should report them to the Society for Prevention of Radial Engine Cruelty or SPREC - the sound they make as the bearing seize from overheating.

Hate to see a round engine beat like that, these are precision instruments that don't leak oil , they just frequently mark their territory. I work on these and all other types of airplane engines, and it is a sin to see what these folks doing to such a fine piece of art.
