Crankshaft

Its special shape has a very particular function, and every angle is calculated to the exact millimetre. Located deep inside the engine, it transmits the vertical movement of the pistons into the circular motion of the shaft, which then travels through the transmission and drives the wheels. The darker protruding parts are the balancing weights that ensure that the engine runs smoothly.
