Cool stuff!

The test 'stand' almost looks like a car! All it needs is a body over it.

Neat video, Eric! Bet that would be really cool to arch on a dark night with the Flames out the exhaust ports!

Those fellows in that first video seemed a bit apprehensive to get too close. I had to see what all the hubub was about, and here's the narrative that went with it.

Original

Erster Start von unserem Panzermotor Rover Meteor. Er ist identisch mit Rolls Royce Merlin. Der war in aufgeladener Version mit Einspritzung in der Spitfire, P51 Mustang und Lancaster Bomber mit bis z

Translation

First start by our armoured motor Rover Meteor. He is identical with Rolls Royce Merlin. He was Mustang and Lancaster bomber in supercharged version with fuel injection in the Spitfire, P51-z

First start so they probably thought there was the possibility of things going haywire on them. Those air filters looked impossibly small for it, didn't they.

Awwwww come on..... You don't think Pops could do a tune up on it? Maybe pitch the blade, do an oil change, and get the throttle lined out! :sidelaugh:ROFL
