F1 video (zoinks!)

Arrows F1 car powered by a V10 Cosworth engine. You will not believe the noise this thing makes when they rev it and you will not believe the color of the headers as they get hot (as in, white hot).

2997cc
20K rpm
~950 hp

Right-click -> http://users.zoominternet.net/~jonlauer/f1fireup.mpeg

Some cool facts-n-figures here.

iirc, F1 Regulations state that the cars must weigh at least 600kg.

Looks like an XX engine with a Two Brothers' exhaust.

Re: F1 video (zoinks!)

The minimum weight permissible is 600kg including the driver, fluids and on-board cameras. However, all F1 cars weigh significantly less than this (some as little as 440kg) so teams add ballast to the cars to bring them up to the minimum legal weight.

Re: F1 video (zoinks!)

I've been following F1 since 1988 and the biggest reason I loved it was the engines. Awesome fricken engines... going back years to 1988 when I first loved the 1.5L V6 Twin Turbo Honda's and Ferrari's... to the 3.5L V12-V10 configurations to the current 3.0L V10's. I think in 2007 the displacement will fall even further to 2.4L.

Funny how all of them are plugging their ears....

Re: F1 video (zoinks!)

That vid is a media stunt.

My guess would be retarded timing to dump lots of mixture into the headers while still burning.

BAD ASS though! Like a firebreathing monster.

Remember the vid of the F1 engine programmed to "sing"?

Re: F1 video (zoinks!)

How did you guess chain? Was it the fact that I never use KGs or "permissible"?
