    Default Honda's f1 engine

    Some interesting general information.

    Reportedly, an innovative, very compact design - with heat gain issues but significant potential:

    Wonder if it acts like a afterburner on overrun.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    Doh!! the "axial" side is on the intake not exhaust.....

    Funny thing is, early jet engines used turbo/super charger technology.
    The intake side was a giant "centrifugal flow" compressor (dual back to back in the pic), the same design used on modern turbos and centrifugal superchargers (Paxton).
