out of a solid chunk of aluminum
Well that is cool, have you ever checked out a Nitro engine block and heads, same thing; totally machined from billet blocks.
I could do that with my trusty Black & Decker drill and a steady hand
Ill take one
Who ever programs that rig is a god. You think it would be quicker to smack one out with a cold chizle and a hammer then write the code to to make all that work. Very cool.
I'll take mine in 572 CID.
I wonder what motor it is...?
Probably based off of a Nissan or Toyota V8 or maybe even a Honda racing V8. It looked a lot like 4.7 Toyota block to me, but I have only seen one once before and that was a few years ago...........
I have no expierience when it come to non american (and mainly chevy ) v8's so i had no clue...
Either way its freakin gorgeous
I definately don't want to know the amount of money and/or time that went into that...
My guess was a Honda racing engine they use in the INDY cars it looked rather small to me but I dont really know. What ever it goes to the machining was pretty bad ass to watch.
thats what i was thinking, it looked to be a small bore
What grade of material is what I'd like to know.
Yeah, on a chunk of wood maybe.
Here's the link to the shop/business that made the block......
not sure of the grade of aluminum...but
7075 T-6 aluminum billet blocks
At the aircraft engines plant I work at, the CNC mills make turbojet fan blade/wheel/rotor/thingers out of a solid chunk of metal. I wish I could take pictures of the parts, they're really cool.
