i dont think so due to its size but, i could be wrong. also, according to the the comments the guy who posted it (the builder i presume) stats that it tips the scale at 4800 grams (over 10 1/2lbs), has a price tag of £3380 ($6,300) and says it has only 6 horsepower which i find hard to believe and it redlines at 5,000 rpm soooo..... it is some very impressive engineering though.

6hp @ 5000 rpm is pretty damn good. That's 5.252 ft-lbs or 1008.384 oz-inch.

well, diesel engines all have glow plugs (rather than spark plugs), so they could qualify. In fact, two stroke diesel engines are among largest/highest horsepower engines that exist.

Here you go http://www.smartplugs.com/indexn.html

You can go as big as you want according these people.

If I'm not mistaken there are still many people running glow in giant scale pylon racing. Some of those use engines are 300cc twins. Like these:
