Brazilians claim 4-cylinder records
A team of students and their professor from a Brazilian university say they've set five new records for an aircraft powered by a four-cylinder engine. Anequim (Portuguese for Mako shark) went 323 mph over a 3-kilometer course. That's 33 mph faster than Jon Sharp's Nemesis, the current record holder, which was the undisputed champion in its class at the National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada.
