    .... and other engines.

    Quarter-Scale Merlin

    ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS (1/4 scale):

    * Bore and Stroke: 1.35 x 1.50 inches (25% scale)
    * Cylinder Displacement: 2.15 cubic inches = 35.2 cc
    * Total Displacement: 25.75 cubic inches = 422 cc
    * Horsepower: 16 @ 3600 rpm (estimated)
    * Overall length: approximately 20 inches
    * Weight: approximately 16.5 lb

    I know this is not the correct forum but wasn't sure in which modeling category to put it.
