Looks like a lot of rough cast parts, and just machining for finished fitment. I like the concept but can see where it would be pretty expensive. I would have done a v6, or v8 version with a displacement of 40 to 50 cc. With the advantage of larger pistons, rods and crank shaft it would have been a less complicated engine, that would have been easier to work on. I really like the idea, but to mass produce and get people to buy it, it needs to have some sort of practical use, besides sitting on a stand for display. (More or less a conaly engine as they are pretty gutless for displacement) what would your price be for a kit to assemble the latest engine?

Wow… that’s truly a work and art dude! 👍👌
thanks man.
Looks good 👍. So how do you start it in the rig? I don't see teeth on that flywheel or am I missing something 🤔. Also it looks like your distributor is just a look a like or is there a rotor in there? I do see little spark plugs but I'm curious of how the ignition system works.
it starts by an actuator. there is demostration in my youtube video:
(a bit long)
regarding the teeth, I think it is related to the start question. yes there is a roto in the distributor. please check the picture. (i wanna put a short video which is not allowed). the ignition system works like a real car engine.
this engine works almost like a real car. it drinks normal gasoline of a real car's.
I forgot to ask was that wide open throttle? I hope it wasn't
man it is Walbro carburetor

indeed, for the prototype we used 3D printing technique to make some of the parts. for formal order, we'll make all of them by CNC. we are also planning on a simplified version and V6, V8 are also in our future plan. for price, please leave an email. I'll send it later. thanks


By the way, why all my replied gathered in one post? :(

What will this fit into, currently already made, or will a custom chassis / car have to be built around it?

Always liked the idea of a Conley V8 - just the multiple cylinders in a scale vehicle - always nice in a Cobra, Corvette, or similar.

If you had a scale model Ferrari or Aston, with the full scale running a V12, it would be nice to say you've a V12 in it.

i am not sure about this yet. for now I think we can only produce to order. the fabrication is outsourced, so the cost would be a bit high at this stage. and if we can't gather 30pcs, it'd be hard for us to start fabrication, so we are finding who are interested in this unit and trying to gather enough order.
Hey! Random reader here, who bought onto the disappointing Toyan L400 Failure. Wondering if I could get on your order list? I've posted my email below! Truly interested in this engine friend! Let's connect!

thanks man.

a production engine is also what i want. to make this prototype has cost my a king ransom. i wanna see how many people want this.
Hey breadf!

I'm totally interested in this engine and it's design! I have some experience in your realm as well and I would love to purchase. and even help you expand this company, if you so choose! Let's connect! This looks amazing! 🙌

Dear Thomas,

Thanks for your interest. I've sent your an email. Please check. Look to your reply.

Hi Atom3624,

Thanks for comments. This engine is kinda 1/8 scale and should be able to fit into 1/2.5 ~ 1/4 scale RC buid. We hope it could be used on cars, boats and tanks.
