This engine is similar to The Linkages engine in his VW Routan, which is where I got the idea from. Enter to toggle the engine on/off, shift to start, and up to accelerate.

EDIT:
I changed the timing and used circles instead of lasers, which seem to work better. Now it runs at around 70 rad/s.

It's not new. My 3rd scene was it, and now I have 3 pages...
Oh, well it must not be very common because the first time I saw one based on variable spring lengths was in your newest VW car scene
Yep, I tried to put it in a old passat. I couldn't. My first strong engine was this one, it was bad timed, but worked. It has virtually infinite strenght and speed.
P.S.: Your engine's timing is a bit bad, lasers aren't the best for this. Put more lasers at different angles (like at 5) and it should work faster!
Thanks, I'll try that
