I probably knew at some point, but had forgotten.

What I'd like to see is a flat four implementation of a Scuderi Cycle engine. Two cylinders running as a single stage air compressor, feeding a 120PSI tank, feeding two cylinders that run on gas or compressed air.


en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scuderi_engine

All needed would be a custom [roller bearing] crank and camshaft, and the induction plumbing.

Meanwhile, back on Youtube:

9:40 they made a type two taxi called the Lotacao,
9:43 which had six front hinge doors in the passenger area
9:47 and four bench seats.

Two of my interests are Blender and VW buses, so I found this interesting.

9:15 until the commercial.



As with many tutorials, 0.5x speed is your friend.

It's a scaled down version of the three-passenger Auto Union Type 52.

Well, sort of... On a sidenote, nowadays Australian light-sport aircraft maker Jabiru offers a flat-8 which reminds a lot the VW design, yet that's a proprietary Jabiru engine.
