    Pretty impressive. The last piece though, without giving anything away, will haunt my thoughts for a long time.

    RE: V8 Live Steam Engine

    Thank you! Flywheel: i thought its not necessary, because there are enough moving masses in the trike. Now i think different, but there is no space for it.

    Btw: first i tryed to motorise it with a turbine, but it failed.



    Thats why space was very limited for the 3-zyl. engine.
