What was the straight 8 ?

It was a Thronycroft air crash tender 6 wheel drive with air locking diffs. The engine was a Rolls Royce I think they are called B60 or something. It could run on propane bottles which was just as well due the the gallon per foot fuel consumption.

Any pics?

4 cyl trans FWD

V6 RWD

V12 RWD

 

4 cyl may be chopped in for a 2cyl (twinair) soon and an upcoming project may require me to get a 4x4 in which case a V10 may be a temporary addition. Judging by the state / price of those V10's, I think I'll probably just lease an Amarok instead.

I only have the one vehicle, so instead I'm going to go through my entire car history....no no no, I insist. I know that most normal engines are probably inline if this means "straight" - my fleet only gets a bit of variation towards the end.

 

To make up for lack of variation in configuration, instead I'll post POWAR FIGURES even though power only has limited scope to be interesting...

 

FWD 4 cylinder 8v petrol (53hp)

FWD 4 cylinder 16v petrol (104hp)

RWD (mid-engined) 4 cylinder 16v petrol (120hp)

FWD 4 cylinder 8v petrol (89hp)

FWD 4 cylinder 16v petrol (136hp)

FWD 6 cylinder 24v petrol (170hp) - I KNOW THIS! This was a V6! *overly pleased*

FWD 4 cylinder 8v petrol (110hp)

FWD 6 cylinder 24v petrol (165hp) - Also a V6!

RWD (front-engined) 6 cylinder 24v petrol (204hp) - DITTO! I'm good at this shit...

FWD 4 cylinder 8v diesel (99hp)

FWD 4 cylinder 16v diesel (130hp)

FWD 5 cylinder 20v petrol (140hp)

FWD 4 cylinder 16v petrol turbo (210hp)

RWD (front-engined) 8 cylinder 32v petrol (269hp) - All that mattered to me was that I owned a V8 before I was 30 years old...

FWD 5 cylinder 20v petrol turbo (185hp)

 

"FUN" FACT: The cumulative horsepower of ALL of my cars is 2,184.

"FUN" FACT: The average power output for my entire fleet is only 145.6hp

 

*puts thread back onto its original track*

Transverse 4 cyl 2.0 turbo diesel FWD

Transverse, mid-mounted 4 cyl 2.0 turbo RWD

Transverse 4 cyl 1.6 turbo FWD

Transverse 4 cyl 1.2 FWD

 

Not much variety from me. Even my RWD car thinks it is FWD.

Until a few weeks ago, the fleet had cylindrical balance:

3cyl N/A petrol 12v

4cyl turbo diesel 8v

5cyl N/A diesel 10v

6cyl twin turbo petrol 24v

 

V8 needed at some point
