Yep the guy next door got a RX8 was going out, forgot mobile, stopped car 50yards from drive, gets mobile, back into car and no go…. The AA where at it for over 2 hours before it went off on flat bed to dealer.

Now has a Golf.

and Diesel aero engines


I read about this and Diesel aero engines some years ago, and I thought it was quite neat.
A supercharged diesel two stroke with two pistons per cylinder.
The germans used it in the Junkers Jumo in WW2.

Only 26 moving parts? Out of 31? And that's good - is it?

And how do the two seperate 'bits' relate to the drive shaft? If they are moving at constantly different speeds, how does that work?

But if it DOES work, I'll have 2!!
