how the engine works..

Never really understood the whole process so let's go over it it could be fun let's start with out motor just a regular gas.

So from gas tank to injectors into block, spark for explosion witch builds pressure to push the poston head and rod down? Then..

The rod connects to a lever that releases food , which lands right in front of a hamster that is on a wheel. The hamster runs forward to get the food, the wheel turns, and that is what spins the axles.

I was thinking up upgrading from hampster to guinea pig power.

What is involved with this swap? I already know I need a bigger wheel.

You guys have no faith... I boosted my car only knowing how to change oil and spark plugs at the time. Look, I've done what 99.9 % of people who say they're going to do, that never do.

Best bet is to set up two hamsters in two different wheels, one going each direction.

Hey, how exactly is a rainbow made? How exactly does the sun set? How exactly does the posi-trac rear end on a Plymouth work? It just does.
