Land Speed Record

Permalink

The intersection of machining and barbeque leads us to these folks who are working on creating improved Stirling Engines.

They've gone silent now that they are committed to the construction of a vehicle that will break the land speed record (for stirling engines).

The part that I find so fascinating is their pursuit of elliptical gears. The approach they essay makes one long for a Wire EDM machine.

The only thing this has to do with Q is The Stirling Powered Rotissere aka The Chicken Flinger

Now that's putting waste heat to good use.
