What makes a V8 different from a flat-plane crank?

A V8 engine is a type of internal combustion engine with eight cylinders arranged in the shape of a "V."

It is a common setup for high-performance cars and sports cars because it gives a good mix of power and smoothness.

A flat-plane crank is a type of crankshaft that is used in some high-performance engines, like some V8 engines.

A flat-plane crankshaft is different from a traditional cross-plane crankshaft in that its throws are 180 degrees apart.

This makes the time between each cylinder firing more even.

This design can make the engine sound more aggressive, improve the engine's balance, and make it less likely to shake.
