    Don't want to hijack this thread as its about those awesome Rorty buggies. The R16 should be a great fit for this engine - its big enough to take some serious torque.

    I have 2 if you want one can supply it in an R16, R21, R11....

    Yes. As they say, you only live once; until you have kids and get to live your dreams through them!

    I'm planning on running in the Finke Desert race in a Motus powered r16 or r21. Aiming at 2016.

    I wonder if they will vibrate themselves to death like the Scat V4's. Seemed to jump around pretty good a certain RPM's on the dyno.

    Was that due to their uneven firing, or were the pistons slugging in sync? Seems like you could balance a v4 fairly well by having the pistons slinging in opposite directions with a well balanced crank. Probably not as good as a boxer though.

    Firing order. It had power pulses that would eventually shear off the flywheel bolts. Would also vibrate of anything that wasn't safety wired and Loctited with a lock nut.

    I watched Chuck Hovey weld the flywheel to the crank at the 1000 years ago to finish the race.

    Friction weld?
