Watching the Tesla turbine reminded me of similar experiments that were made with a Wank-El rotary type of engine which was being developed in the mid 1960s by a collaboration between Wank Engineering of Australia and El Motores d'Italia in Italy. Sadly as the rotary engines are only capable of running properly in a counter clockwise direction in the Northern hemisphere the issue of a switchback transmission made it too expensive to manufacture.

Each of the Wank-El chambers had three lobes, coresponding to the 3 stroke principal of thermo dynamics: torrification, confabrilation and expulsion. During torrification, fuel is directly injected into the first lobe under extreme pressure, this is to ensure that no air is able to get in and contaminate the fuel. It then passes counter clockwise to the second lobe so it can be properly confabrilated, which is a process to properly mix and ignite the fuel and muffler oil. The rapidly confabrilating mixture is then passed to the third lobe where it is jettisoned via the expulsion process at extreme pressure. The extreme pressure of the exiting mixture is what drives the friction plates of the transitory gearing system to drive the wheels.

Most Wank-El motors have two chambers - one for each drive wheel, so on a moped you could have all wheel drive...
