Each motor has the theory explained and instructions given how to build the motor for yourself or as a parent/child project. Some common items around the house can be used.
My Insight



My 2005 Honda Insight Hybrid

Visitors to this selection 

There were approximately 17,000 of these first generation Honda Insights made from 1999 to 2006 so they are fairly rare. Luckily most were sold in the USA from 2000 to 2006.

The car has an aluminum body and chassis. It weighs ~1870 lbs with a 1 liter 3 cylinder engine.

With careful driving these cars can deliver tremendous gas mileage. How does 85 mpg at 65 mph, 90 to 105 mpg at 50 mph or 120 mpg at 30 mph grab you?

This section of the website has information about my home built replica of a 1963 Lotus 7 race car.

The car weighs about 1000 lbs and is powered by a 1 liter 165 hp Suzuki GSXR-1000 super bike engine.  Performance and handling is "outstanding" to say the least.

Driving this car is like having a nervous cheetah on a leash! 0 to 60 mph in ~4.1 seconds but the top speed is restricted due to the low rear end ratio. Fun isn't restricted at all.
