Introduction: Knex V8 Engine Part 1

About: Interests!

First: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-V8-Engine-Part-One-Version-Two/   <<< 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 HOPE YOU LIKE!!!

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 or...you 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?
