check it out it, they have a few designs but its an amazing setup

these motors get like crazy HP and Torque and Insane MPG

don't quote me on this but if I remember right their 2.4 liter motor is getting about 350HP and around 175 torque and close to 50 MPG

It's about like the quasi-turbine engine... both are neat engineering projects but from a practical standpoint you can't do much with it. Same can be said for the 6 stroke engine...

its not the engine designs slowing down the industry, its the transmissions. ive read in several different magazines that the technology in the speed of automatic transmissions has reached the limit. just simply cant make it shift any faster

revetech is the win, ill be interested to see when the real testing and retro fitting happens ie how far it goes before it breaks.

:thumbdown: I see very little in the way of actual mechanical advantage and some aspects that are definitely worse. The rotors/cams are only replacing the crankshaft, which was already not moving in a reciprocating motion. The pistons are applying an offset load to the rotors...certainly not the most effective way of generating power. I very highly doubt their claim of it being easier and cheaper to assemble. You could duplicate any advantage they claim by making a long stroke, roller bearing conventional piston engine. At best, they've copied opposed or radial engines with a less effective design. No thanks.
