    Hey does this actually work? because ive got a knex car chassis (About 3'x2') and this would make a perfect add-on. If it does work, how much power would it crank out? if it doesnt, do you know anything like this that does work?

    Well, seeing as how in a real car the combustion is what creates the power so since this does not have the ability to com bust. The power output is zero, you need a motor such as a drill to make this work.

    Well i know that. Of course you need a drill. I want to know how much power this needs to move and how much it cuts down on torque. Also, how much power can it take before it starts to break.

    Right but what you asked isn't the information you're trying to get. You asked "How much power would it crank out" meaning to me your asking how much power or (HP) it could put out by itself.

    the pictures to show you how to build it on the site dont show up

    Please can you post an a instructable. I would really like to build this!

    Sigh..
