just because you can, don't mean you should.
But this man is one outstanding machinist.

He used a M14P, a Russian made nine-cylinder radial engine dating back to the 1940s.



He built the transmission to get power from the Radial engine to the wheels.

there are 4 videos that link to the next.
Allow it to run thru, it will continue on to the next one.

Be patient, and you will be rewarded.

My question is how he keep it cool?? he drove it on the streets a lot, far too long to go w/o cooling the cylinders.

and like all good projects, there is a BBQ at the end.

My guess is with the side windows and rear window missing was how he kept it cool. That's an awesome hand crafted transmission.

I saw the drag strip clip where it does a 10 second quarter mile @ 220 kph.

It has a license plate. I don't think you could register that thing here.
