I often read articles on interesting engineering. As of late, the subject of the Supercharged 2 Stroke. Honestly the more I study the drawings and articles in this particular instance, the more my head begins to hurt. Try wrapping your heads around the complexity of these machines. They are no joke, not simple by any means and not new either…we are talking 1930’s tech but still.
I used to attribute the fearlessness of and the zeal for complexity, to the Japanese, but I think Zee Germanz might actually have them beat. Amazing stuff really, if you are into mechanical contraptions, as I happen to be.
I’ve read the article below several times and I still cannot fully wrap my head around these DKW machines. I am truly in awe. Just thought some of you might appreciate the read and the concepts.
