    Jeopardy Trivia


    So today i was digging up info on the history of the falco, and found this quite intersting, if you are ever on jeopardy you may find this helps you win $25k.

    Ok so the motor in the Falco, made by Rotax is a 1 liter 60 degree v-twin. ummm i think thats all you need to know about it so far.

    The Jeopardy answer is: This was the original reason the motor was designed.

    What is the proper question!

    What is an aircraft engine?

    (I have zero faith in this answer though after looking at the Rotax web pages.)

    Jeopardy Trivia

    nope. and you wont find this on the Bombardier Rotax site either. It would come from the company that asked Rotax to come up with this kind of design a long while back. Rotax had originally declined to build this motor, until it found that adding the counter rotators inside made it a pretty neat machine for motorcycles. Rider comfort was not an original factor cause it wasn't to go into something that would be "ridden" or "driven"

    Jeopardy Trivia

    Electrical generator?

    But then, why would an unbalanced v-twin engine with no counter-balancers be a good choice for anything? Motorcycles seem to be the only use for them.

    Jeopardy Trivia

    compressor is thinking in the right direction...

    it was meant to be the "driving force" for milker/pumping machines on a bunch of dairy farms in Europe!!!! So the lack of counter rotating balancing stuff made no difference at all, it was supposed to sit in the back of a barn all by its lonesome, happily pumping milk, all the live long day.

    so the proper question is...

    "What would be the bullet proof heart and sole of a dairy farm in europe, Alex?"
