This was from a thin metal cilinder.I use alumunium cans also but afer not long work the hot gases will make a hole somwhere.I realy like to play with them.After a short time the engine gets hot, the fuel vaperises more I can realy step on it :lol: and the noise is great.

First it's never going to work with out a spark.Second you better not waste your time trying to build it bigger then 150ml.If it is bigger it will be very difficuld to start.It is like auto combustion, when the friquency of the shots become high enough it turns in to a jet engine.The tube for the air should be with holes from the bottom, that way the air will spray the metanol everywhere and you will be able to put more and more air.And the exaust shouldn't be more then 1-1.5mm in diametar.

Most of my two hard discs(80 and 200 Gb) are full of games like HL2,doom3 RoE,quake4,wolfenstein,the cronicles of riddic,star ship tropers,avp,call of duty 2...And I realy wan't to have weapons like in these games.So far the only thing I have is sniper(my hybrid sniper).All other guns don't have power like in the games.I have a plan for gun on the principle of the roman candle.But it is ilegal.I have some unposted spud guns bu they aren't something unusual.
