Guess who's still here? :bonk:

Physics based scotch yoke engines don't usually work well because of wonky collisions causing a lot of power loss, and plus you have to use a ton of density to get semi-decent operation. Linkages solve some of those issues but don't behave any better at high speed which is why this engine only has a 550 rpm max speed :P

It's fine that it runs at low speed though because it has maximum HP at about 360rpm and max torque at 100. I haven't powertested but I'd guess about 100 hp, as the car is 1600kg and it moves it pretty well

This also has one cylinder and three pistons yet it gets six power stroker per revolution (1 stroke engines FTW :cool: ) I also demonstrated a smaller version of this with only one piston on the algodoo building community, but no one really saw it as nobody goes in there anymore lol

this looks awsone:D:D:D a+
Ayyy lmao
Boi 100 HP max
The torque at low RPMs is tremendous though, like 4500 Nm
