Single Cylinder Flathead Combustion Chamber

I've seen tons visualizations and stuff over the years but this actual combustion chamber footage is still just absolutely amazing. Thanks to Norton George for pointing it out.

At the risk of being labeled a nerdy engineer, that is pretty amazing. You can see that the flame front doesn't advance instantaneously; at that speed, it's pretty slow and controlled. Look closely and you can see what looks like glowing/sparkling carbon spots.
