How combustion engines work
So how do you make a car go faster? Aside from pushing the accelerator pedal harder there are some basic things that can be done. The internal combustion engine works on the principle suck, bang, blow. Air is drawn in to the engine (this is the suck stage) then it is mixed with Fuel and compressed – then along comes a bright spark and the Bang is achieved – releasing all that compressed energy which forces the air out of the engine along the exhaust this is the Blow stage.
