Ummmmm - I think I'll wait for running prototypes. In Gurney We Trust, tho.

So more parts and more weight to get less vibration? If I wanted less vibration for me its a inline 6 or two inline 6s I mean V-12.

Or any flat engine.

Interesting. Even if it were a completely groundbreaking concept, for the most part, I think that we're so ensconced in the traditional combustion engine, because of more than a century's worth of R&D on it.

I believe it's a 2-cylinder. So in that application, yes, the vibration would be an issue that needs fixin'. But, yeah, for a full-size car, use more cylinders!
