OK, that was cool as hell. I have to admit I did laugh out loud when I read "Realistic Sound" at the beginning.

Sounds like a tutor and a class of students in Poland.

I would bet money on it that they are using ceramic and not glass. Pretty much the same stuff they use on stove windows. Pretty expensive to make. Just the see thru ceramic outer round case on my air roaster (coffee roasting chamber) was enormously expensive. It is several times tougher than glass and can stand enormous amounts of heat. Kind of funny, when I used to fire up my roaster the bang as the gas ignited with my blower motor sounds, kind of sounded similar.

Very cool vid!!!

yeah i bet it would be expensive, be interesting though especially if a glass cased gear box could be attached to it.

Thanks for the comments everyone

Matt

pretty awesome Ive never seen a pyrex outer combustion case before, would be allot cooler is the PT case was pyrex to see the wheel going but that would be a death wish.
