Watch These 10 Awesome Radial Engines And All Of Their Glorious Specs

Watch These 10 Awesome Radial Engines And All Of Their Glorious Specs

Radial engines may have had their day in the sun before turbines came into the picture and kind of took over the world of aviation but we still love them. Even the small ones are pretty big and boy can they make some power. This video looks at 10 of the best radial engines ever built from all over the world and doesn’t just show them, it actually gives the specs and history behind each one. This is not necessarily a grouping of the biggest and most powerful engines but rather some of the most durable, long-lasting, and largest volume ones ever as well.

There’s nothing like the sound that a radial engine makes, especially one that has a centrifugal supercharger on it like some of those that you will see here. The stories of servicing the multi-row engines used in big WWII era planes are pretty amazing. If the starting procedure failed there would be nearly five dozen plugs to change and multiple hours of work to change them. The way the exhaust comes off of the cylinders in the multiple row engines is also amazing and it gives the engine a really neat look as well.

____ If you love engines of the piston type, you will love this video. Bore and stroke, horsepower, applications, history, and more, this has a little something to tickle everyone’s gearhead fancy.

s10 Pickup Named the FARM MOD Is One Bad Little Dude

Say Hello To The Farm Mod! (Memphis Street Outlaws)

This little s10 is one awesome truck. Affectionately named Farm Mod for obvious reasons. The truck was built by shop kids that in its self makes this truck special.

With its Chevy Ls based engine and  a progressive 400 shot and a pretty good size tire, the truck will defiantly get you back to the farm in time to feed the cows.

If kids were able to construct something like this at such a young age, just imagine what’s coming when these youngsters get a little bit of experience under their belts.

They could even be the next big thing in the world of drag-racing.

We really support high school shop classes and believe there should be more across the country. However, that sound like an awesome truck.

Video below shows off the garage built machine yanking the front wheels and making its way down the track to a clean pass.

Driving a Freaky Chevy C10 Truck With Huge Tires!!

Chevy C10 Truck With Huge Tires!!

“Believe me I’m a mechanic,” – words which describe this guy perfectly!! And one more prove that Redneck imagination has no limits. Those “Partners” on the truck are doing improvements and tune up their truck in very bizarre way. In other words – stock trucks are for pussies.

Redneck tuning is far-far away from logic and engineering.

However, this guy just set a World Record in must Bizzare Redneck Tuning. Instead of restoring this Classic Chevy C10, or improving comfort inside, No, he put huge tires on the rear axle to make the impossible to drive truck!

And when I say huge, I mean it. They have the same height as whole Truck.

One important notice is, that despite of all those redneck show-off features, owner improved the engine, setting a huge turbo. Moreover, to mount those huge sushis frame and axle improvement were mandatory.

Finally, we’re pretty sure, that this truck is impossible to drive in day-by-day routine, but to show-off a little, why not?
