Hi

After some fiddling I came up with this idea for a single crank W16 engine:

Each crank uses a #3 connector to comepnsate for the piston offsets:

And Finally the top view of the engine:

Hopefully someone can build this baby in real life and provide feedback :wink:

Looks great! I'll give it a shot later. I don't have enough pistons left though, so probably only doing one side.

Interesting solution! I will try to build it, but I don’t know if I have enough smooth toggle joints (my bin is full of toothed ones:laugh:)

I didn't have enough cylinders or toggle joints for a full W16, but it should work perfectly as W16! Here's my W8 engine. Only had to make one little change to the crank because I removed half the engine. 

Video quality could have been better... Sorry.

Nice engine, and it works smooth. Bringing16 pistons in position is a nightmare. *huh*

The only problem I can see: how to drive the crank? There is no space for a normal full thick gear ...

Nice attempt, but the cylinders are too far from the crankshaft imo. Also connecting everything to two.small engine blocks feels a bit off. I'm not sold.

If this is an attempt to improve the Bugatti, I think it belongs in the mods and Improvements thread.

I built this engine. It does run smooth. I connected an M motor with a band and a pulley.

The engine itself could use some reinforcement. I had a hard time keeping it square. The crankshaft seems 1/4 m too short.
