Knex V8 Engine Part 1





Introduction: Knex V8 Engine Part 1

About: Interests!

First:   <<< Thats the new one.

Took me about 3 days to create as much as this engine as I could till I ran out of pieces, and since its labeled part 1 you know that I have much more to make for this engine. 
This is just a video of me using a powerful corded drill to spin the crank shaft.

My plan is to finish the engine, work on the clutch and then the transmission (manual of course)


I also took instruction pics so here is a poll:
If I get 30 "+1" in each comment posted (One Per Person)
I will post the first half the instruction, you can build it now and wait for my next set to come build it and finish the rest of it yourself, but I wouldn't since it would ruin the fun of me doing it for you, I.E. DON'T DO IT!!!

I also give thanks to needles300; his instructable helped me think of a way to have the pistons move, and guide without shaking all over the place.

    you should put that in a car and see if it would go over 60 km lol

    I think...I'm going to take the time to do this.

    ya that tells a lot you dont tell us how to make it. I mean you did a good job but what if some one wants to make it

    Its been a while since I've been on here; I finally got moved into the new house. Also I got my new knex pieces...and it doesn't seems like i get alot for my money ( I spent about 116 dollars for ordering separate parts ) I will continue building till i then again run out of pieces.

    part 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THAT IS INSANE! It is kind of cheating using a non knex motor.

    I guess, but how did you get it to fit on the rod without breaking anything?
