New Varieze - Here's my baffles for a perfectly cooled engine

Recommended Posts

I completed this Varieze awhile ago but stumbled on some pictures that some might be interested in. 

The baffling is what works much better than expected. In fact, with the coated exhaust, I now have issues with the heads sometimes not running warm enough. With some careful angling of exit direction and keeping the air attached on exit seems to keep all cylinders within very very close temp proximity.

Thanks. For hand work it is ok. Would like to cast them in prepeg carbon fiber. Shed some weight.

Im pretty sure Beryl Sanders did these with Chis Woodard and Freeflight Composites. May have templates. They work pretty OK.

I think they look great!  Fraying carbon fiber and epoxy on the cylinder fins raises some concerns for me.  I suspect they need to be changed much more often.
