    Not exactly but close- the Allison and Rolls Merlin/Griffon V-12 aircraft motors that North American used are almost 4 times the size of the Falconer. He got his motor FAA approved and sells it for use in P-51 replica that's about half-scale. You can see one here-

    The Torque was built to be exceptionally reliable and if they can work the bugs out, the cost/benefit ratio to big blower motor will make them a virtual giveaway.

    As far as size, the motor has a much lower height (CG) and since ther's no blower/intercooler/etc the weight differential shouldn't be significant. If you are talking about an iron-block V-8, that difference should be about nil.

    Watch Callan on the race course. His whole goal is to beat on those engines until Sterling figures out how to make them stop breaking. Dave's goal is to run an entire season on one set of engines. When that happens, it's time to buy.

    I found it interesting that they are talking to SeaTek about their new V-12.
