In ROP we had a T-Rex which is basically a big green 2 stroke diesel dozer so i got to thinking.... why did they stop making 2 stroke diesels? I still can't figure out why there isn't any gas 2 strokes on the streets. If they can figure em out for outboard's you'd think they would have em for trucks. I know the outboards are horizontally oppossed with a very short stroke for hp but it wouldn't be that hard to make a 2 stroke v8 or v6 with way more power per cubic inch than 4 strokes. Evinrude has basically revolutionized outboards by coming out with the e-techs. The use direct injection efi to make more power and burn cleaner and they developed their own mufflers to keep noise as low as possible. They also burn 64 times cleaner than the 4 strokes on the market today. Instead of scrapping the 2 stroke R and D they poured more into to it and came up with a lighter, faster, torqyer (is that a word?), quieter, cleaner 2 stroke that has all the rest of the 4 stroke and 2 stroke guys kicking themselves in the ass. Why can't they do that for cars and trucks? Anybody have any explanations? I'm stumped.
