Lightbulb A 1/9 Scale Fully-Functional Supercharged V8

All I have to say is.. holy s***.

Yes, this 1/9 scale V8 runs. It contains tiny pistons, connecting rods, a crankshaft, and everything else that makes full-sized V8s push cars down the 1/4 mile in no time flat. From the engine’s maker, whose name I sadly can’t find on the site.

Damn.. Imagine that in a remote control car lol.

sorry guys.. sold Camaro and got a Cadillac CTS, waiting for a few years to get a 2010 SS used ;]

1/9th scale from what size? Its still amazing though. It sounds just like a full sized engine, at least through these speakers it does. That might be what they run in F1 in a decade. I think they are down to around 2.5L V8's. So a 1L supercharged engine isn't out of the question for them.
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them
