whiskey Posted April 20, 2005 Share Posted April 20, 2005 One of the enduring themes in the kit building arena is the certified vs auto engine debates. Badly installed auto engine experimentals have the ability to paint the entire kit building fraternity with a not entirely respectable image. (this may not be a bad thing) Given that auto engines are less reliable than certified engines. Why has there not been more emphasis on multiengined variants? With two power plants of suitable power output you go down the same path as hard disk manufacturers with RAID systems. Call it RAIE redundent array of inexpensive engines. Develop a standard mounts for a set of engines and the Certified vs Uncertified argument based around reliability dissappears. Personally I would love to see a diesel engine twin based around some of the light diesels becoming available Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
