HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Allison C250

Post  fliermike45 on Thu Jan 19, 2012 9:49 pm

The Bell Jet Ranger engine originally designed and built by Allison and now owned and built by Rolls Royce.
After watching the bike video I had some misgivings, the helio depicted is a Huey and not a 206 Jet Ranger as described and the guy tells us that the max torque is at 2000 rpm. The engine is rated at 35,000 rpm power turbine speed and the output shaft turns at 6000 rpm. So his bike must have a gearbox to further reduce the speed to 2000.
Depending on model dash number the engine is rated from 420 to 715 horsepower.

Guess comeone is going to have to make hybrid Porsche/Rolls Royce badges.

very good digging mike thats the therory i came up with the rpm would have to be reduced.hot rod magazine had a article a while back on a chevy pu with a turbine helicopter engine in it and was talking about using a brake to slow the engine to engage into gear and the trans it was hooked to was a gm turbo 400 .rolls royce porsche badges .haha .still an interesting concept a 185 pound motor making that kind of power wow

Turbine cars

Post  fliermike45 on Fri Jan 20, 2012 8:28 am

If one goes back in history, Rover built prototype gas turbine engine cars and took the development to the race track. The Rover powered BRM ran at Le Mans in the early 60's, it has a single speed transaxle and aimed at efficiency awards. I believe the problem with turbines is that they really have to run at constant engine speed to develop the required power. The STP car at Indy proved this also.
I'm sure that if turbines were viable race car engines the racers would use them. Putting one in a road car or bike is really an impractical gimmic.

Great for drag racing and car shows but that's about it. Iv ridden in helos almost every day for the last 8 years with my job. Fliermike45 is correct on the engine needing consistent speeds. Throttle response is sluggish due to the way a turbine works.
