Most spring engine vehicles have little power and are slow. Not this one. Here is what could be the fastest vehicle powered by a spring engine. This Dodge Ram has a "5.9 Cummins" l-6 engine, which has lots of power and spins quite quickly (1500 rpm). It is connected to a 5 speed manual transmission. It can go from 0-60 mph in about 2 seconds, and continue going to over 330 mph.

Currently, it's tuned safely. You can easily achieve 0-60 times of less than 1.7 seconds if you make the springs stronger and make the flywheel heavier.

i should hope it has power.
60 strength springs
pistons that weigh as much as the body
Still it's nice to look at. I give it a 9/10. No matter what sheepborg says. Sorry sheepborg:o
The body is just for looks. if you send it to the back you can see a heavy frame.
The engine itself weighs about 800 kg, and the rest of the car is about 4500 kg.

i was just saying that common sense suggests that it should go fast
It says in the title its fast. It can do the 1/4 mile in the low 9's.
Not to disagree with you sheepborg, but you don't see this type of cars often that will go this fast with only a spring engine, bounce engine whatever. So it's worth showcasing. There is lots of junk in algobox and this is not one of them so it's worth rating. Disagree?
the back just floats up in the air...
it only goes 6 ms
Mine goes from 0 to 100 mph in 3 seconds with 6800 rpm and a max speed of 560 mph AND it weights 22 kg :*) Take a look to my dragster :)
