It’s a turbine/crankshaft hybrid using mostly small parts. Unit features full steering rack, custom wheels <–my favorite part, a functioning turbine thingy that looks like an automobile engine, and a working gear set. The exhaust nozzles are staged separately and gives flame bursts that re-creates cylinders firing in a realistic order :)

When the front end stages, the bushings sag a little and give the front wheels a nice camber. I leave SAS on for steering because I didn’t build in any caster or auto-centering so it meanders a bit.

A few different types of bearings/bushings were used throughout. Check ‘em out.

Edit: moved jeb’s faux steering wheel forward.

Pure stock.
KSP version 1.2.0.
