Petrol heads all those looking to learn more about the workings of engines may be interested in a new 4 Stroke, water-cooled, working model engine kit called the X-Power which has launched via Kickstarter this month and already blasted past its required pledge goal with still 24 days remaining. The two cylinder engine consists of more than 100 parts which need to be fitted together to make the 4-stroke and 2-cylinder engine work.
Providing a great understanding of the core principles of engine operation. “X-Power is an amazing DIY experience that help you relieve the daily stress. When you work with X-Power, everything else fades away and a new world is yours!” The model engine kit runs at up to 16,000 RPM and can be used in a wide variety of applications and even your remote-control models and supports 1:10, 1:12, and 1:14 scale models if desired.
Early bird pledges are now available for the innovative project from roughly $399 or £289 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 43% off the retail price, while the Kickstarter crowd funding is under way. If the X-Power campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and the project progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around October 2021.
