Knex V8 Engine Part 1

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 need to make a vid of it exploding from too much power it would be awsome to see knex fly all over the place

    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?
