Also currently this is more of an "academic" question as I don't intend to build one of these immediately... I might end-up buying one from LPEpower as I don't have the parts, the time, tools and experience of modifying the required parts to get one running properly. So before investing in parts that are heavily modified I want to make sure this is a viable/fun solution.

I am not sure about CO2... On a few occasions I have noticed "snow" coming out of my markers. When the marker gets some liquid CO2 from the tank (or from condensation?) it tends to shoot pellets faster with white jets of CO2 coming out of the muzzle. The way CO2 is expelled in violent successive releases might be why it happens. I'm not sure about what would happen if the gas was released uniformly. That's why I really would like to have an answer from someone who tried that kind of thing.

@Joubarc could, but it defeats the idea of running from a pneumatic engine if you need another engine and power source to power it.

Remover the power-functions tag as this question is not related to Power functions. The engines in question are entirely mechanical with no electronics and made of (modified) technic parts and third party additions.

revised What are the largest Technic-compatible tires on the market?
changed the question to tires because @Joubarc found the biggest wheels but without tires (which was not the intent of the question)
