V8 Crank Shaft Keychain
Leander @Shaggamathula I just researched again concerning my second last line. I found that flatplane crankshafts can have smaller balance weights then crossplane cranks. I don't know about a comparision to inline engines, but my second last line in the first post might be wrong. In any way, as far as V8 is concerned, flatplane crankshafts exist in sports cars. Ferrari has some engines with that type. I cannot find the picture any more, that I used as base for the model. However I did not try to create a specific certain model of a crankshaft with this part.
Leander @Shaggamathula Thank you for your words! It is good to hear that you like it. As far as the engine is concerned, it could also be an inline 4 engine. However on a V engine, there are always two piston rods on one hub, next to each other so the cylinders aren't exactly opposite but slightly offset. So this can also be a V8. I think often times on inline engines, the balance weights or "cheeks" will be smaller or thinner, because one hub has only one piston. In any way thanks a lot.
