We hear a lot about how fast a travels, but most of us rarely consider how fast the piston travels. This is basically a math problem. The effect of the connecting rod is a significant factor that is often under appreciated.

I wrote the first version of this page in 2003. I received many complements and criticisms. In this rework of the page, I will try to clarify some of these concepts.

Rod   6.024   b = 6.024
Stroke   3.307   r = 3.307/2 = 1.6535
Reported by Jim Knapp

For 6000 RPM a(t)=0 at
   t=0.0021 seconds (0.002100653404 sec)
   t=0.0079 seconds (0.007899346596 sec)

s(0) = 7.68 inches
s(0.0021) = 6.218 inches

|v(0.0021)| = 1078 inches/second = 61 MPH.
0 to 61 in 0.0021 seconds



The First, DASTEK UNICHIP TECHNICALLY THE BEST; If you need more POWER, you need more AIR(cmf)
