Electromagnetic Motor (Actually working)

Tested on high physics. May not work on low or even medium.

Press 1 to start. Steer with Roll.

You may want to turn off the sound :)

MOTOR ONLY - CLICK HERE

MARK 2 - SMALLER, BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER

MARK 3 - BI-DIRECTIONAL IN TWO OPTIONS

The motor can be made more powerful by increasing magnet strength even more and adding more weight to the flywheel (the four-beamed thing right after the rotor).

The opposite also works: if you don't need much power, you can get rid of the flywheel, remove dead weight from the rotor cylinders and make magnets weaker. It will reduce the weight of the whole thing dramatically.

The direction of spin is determined by initial position of the rotor, so if you stop it and then try to turn it on again, or if the rotor declines on its own before the launch, it may start spinning in the opposite direction (or it may not start spinning at all).

Of course the motor can be attached directly to the wheels:

The chassis is my old build - slightly adjusted The Real Car. Check it out if you haven't, it has a gearbox and a piston engine :).

Also take a look at this - it's a similar motor with interesting design by @Kitten777 made a day earlier. I think he deserves an upvote!

    @DPSAircraftManufacturer thank you! The MK3 version is about two times faster.
    .
    I'm pretty sure this kind of gearbox (overdrive I think?) won't work good enough for a couple reasons. I didn't have time to properly try it though. You can try it yourself if you want to.

    dang it. I knew eventually clean engines would get into simpleplanes but i didn't know they would come this fast.
    Thankfully though there are so many parts a Prius can't be built out of it. if one is i will leave SP and go somewhere else clean engine free.
    Jk about the last part but i am happy to see people are using the magnets differently this quick after the 1.8 update
