A couple of yrs ago, Kevin Cameron had a most interesting article on that very subject. He postulates that the more efficient the combustion chamber, the more suckological the sound. And vice versa.



I don't recall if crank force vectors were discussed.

Re: I agree

Ahhh, yes! Many of us of a "certain" age had a first car with inline six. While I miss those, I don't miss the 3 on the tree.

A bud of mine just bought a sexy Lexy SC300 just to get that creamy six. Yikes!

Re: I agree

Not buying one on the cheap from a reliable source was one of the dumber things I ever did. Nope, only a Chevy II.

And to think I missed out on the dashboard pushbutton tranny.

Re: I agree

As usual, I reply too quickly...my riding buddy - he of the chickbike Magna - bought a used SC300...

The first week he had it, truck kicked up a rock and just crushed one of those fancy, schmancy headlights. About $700 to replace.

Oh, and his Magna is PURPLE ("Bessarabian Plum") and white ("foamfroth white").

We have had a LOT of fun with that....
