    Working miniature Ferrari with a (working!!) flat V12

    Preface: Linked YouTube video content is < 5 mins.

    As a former machinist of many years, the skill involved in making micro/macro-scaled versions of complex things is something I have a huge amount of respect for. If I live long enough, and have enough money when I retire, my garage/workshop will have a CNC lathe, a CNC mill, a band saw and a TIG and/or MIG so I can turn the oddball ideas I have rolling around in my melon into reality.

    Anyways, I have seen lots of small-scale motors, but the smaller they get the more they tend to diverge from the motor trying to be scaled/copied for obvious reasons.

    This guy... this guy right here redefines the idea of adhering to the original concept. Not just in terms of the motor, but the whole frickin' car (watch that teeny-tiny tachometer work when he revs the motor at 2:31).

    You can hear the incredulous giggle in Jeremy Clarkson's voice when he asks about the 24 valve setup... and the fact the gearbox has reverse.

    Impressive beyond belief.

    Very very cool!!! Thanks for the link Faust!!
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.
