600cc V8 engine
« on: May 06, 2010, 09:38:55 PM »
My classmate who is the lead builder/designer of our school's Formula SAE Car sent me this link:

The only rules for the Formula SAE car is that the engine can't exceed 610cc and it must have a throttle restrictor plate with a 20mm diameter. Most teams run a Honda 600RR motorcycle engine, but this team said "screw that" and built this IN HOUSE on a 5 axis CNC mill

Here are some pictures from the above page:







restrictor plate. This had to really limited the power output sadly...
















WOW

Hello TheEquineFencer!

Hmmm, yeah the link and image URLs are dead... Okay, I just tried the Wayback machine and it has some good hits I think. Try this link, http://web.archive.org/web/20140501000000*/http://dot.etec.wwu.edu/fsae/v30/v30pics.html, and then try some dates from a few yrs past.

I tried the June 20 2014 date and it loads thumbnails but not the full size images: http://web.archive.org/web/20140620234022/http://dot.etec.wwu.edu/fsae/v30/v30pics.html Maybe some older copies of the site have full size pics, or, maybe you can try a reverse Google Image search on the thumbnails to see if they were mirrored anywhere before being removed.

Ok I did a few reverse image searches (I use this Extension with Firefox to make this reallllly simple to do: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-image-search-1/) and came up with a few hits:


It's listed towards the bottom of http://jalopnik.com/the-smallest-v8s-ever-made-1221935889

Machining process shown here http://jalopnik.com/5761950/watch-a-chunk-of-aluminum-cncd-into-an-engine-block

I only did a reverse search on four images (2 found, 2 not found), but you get the idea.
