Here are some pics I have of a Turboniques Mustang I did. I do have some construction pics that I can post if anyone would like to see such an animal.

VERY COOL! :) I have seen pictures of this in the magazines and I am glad to see it here so I can get a better look at it. This isn't the device that Jairus' post is about, but I thought it was. How does the 1:1 engine work? It's something I've been trying to figure out. Where does the combustion happen?

Sorry for the Q's about the 1:1, but I've never seen one of these.

If you will give me a snail mail address, I will make copies of the magazine articles I have and will send them to you. Would that work for ya? That way you'll have the entire history of the product and how they work.

Kinda what I thought too, Dave. That's one of the reasons I built it. :-)

Hey Tim,

How 'bout scanning those articles and hosting them so we all could see.

I've got a major thing for Turboniques. Got some ideas for a future project powered by one.

Tim,

What USAC has posted on Turboniques is a LOT of what I have. The difference is I have more specific info on particlar cars from back then.

That's amazing! All the more so because I remember seeing those ads in car magazines many years ago. I didn't know if they really worked or if that was just a fly-by-night scam. Back in those days there wasn't always that much difference between the two! If it was real, I reasoned, why wasn't everybody using them? I must have been as whacko as everybody else! :P
