It astonishes me that any engine can hold together for even a few seconds turning that many RPMs.
The amount of engineering that went into that power plant is staggering. Just the materials alone to cut wait in the rotating assembly is incredible that that engine is going to be able to survive on the street. Sounds amazing. Thank you for posting this.
it's an interesting study in exclusivity/cost. Was this engine used because of exclusivity, or because they wanted the last .5 percent performance gain from reduced engine weight? Or both, more likely.
