There is a tendency for all enthusiasts to reach for the ultimate. In this case, talented builders are attempting to build a fully functioning, four-cycle, spark ignition engine, as small as possible.

It is difficult enough to build an engine in one fourth or one fifth scale as compared to a standard automobile engine. These engines have bores of an inch or an inch and a half.

Cool pics, but no real info. on the building process.
