Perhaps the single most important part of a race car is the engine. It is the heart of the car and provides the power that propels it down the track. The engine must be designed and tuned for a specific purpose, such as sprint racing or endurance racing. It must be able to produce a lot of power without breaking down.
There are many different types of engines used in racing cars. The most common type is the internal combustion engine, which uses a mixture of fuel and air to create power. Piston engines are the most highly developed and popular but rotary Wankel engines are also popular, being perhaps better suited to racing than road use.
Electric motors are becoming more common in racing as technology advances. We're not sure they can compete with the joy, theatre, and customizability of an ICE. However, improved battery technology has made them impossible to ignore in recent years, and in some forms of sprint racing, they're already gaining the upper hand.
No matter what engine is used, it must produce a lot of power while also achieving a degree of reliability and efficiency suitable for the style of racing. Power to weight is often more important than absolute power, so less can be more. Forced induction by turbos and superchargers is almost always superior assuming the additional fuel use and complexity can be managed.
Any engine must be properly tuned and maintained. A well-tuned engine will produce more power and be more reliable. It is important to have a qualified mechanic who can tune and maintain the engine. Even the most carefully built and maintained engine will fail eventually, requiring replacement parts and repairs.
If you're selling an engine in my105, be sure to list out all the parts that come with it, as well as any modifications or extra work that's been done. Customers need to know exactly what they're getting so there are no surprises later on.
