    Screw the rotary??? Man, you need to look at www.pettitracing.com ...Try saying that to their 240 Mph RX-7!
     
  3. Why do people rip on vettes so much. the only reason it doesnt get the respect it deserves is jackass's like you wanna stereotype it. Its proven for the past liek 5 years to give the best bang for the buck. yeah it cant beat a mclaren, but it 50k. being bias cause you only like hondas or top end supercars doesnt help you learn more about em. if a car is good rippin on it cause you have shit against ford or chevy or all the jap cars isnt gonna change anything( cept to make more ignorant shits like yourselves). As far as the rotary engin goes it has the best potential or any engin eas of yet. you cant deny after seeing the power they put out per liter. the only problem from what i understand is they burn out after about 50-75k miles. id like to see some more developement of this engine.
     
  4. who ever slams the rotary engine has never owned one. the center of gravity is lower than any piston car, it ways a quarter of what a 350 chevy does and it when it comes to durability if you arent stupid and do everything you are susposed to it will last you forever because notning can break. i know someone who had 300k miles on his not bad for a sports car

    Torque don't matter, HP is a measure of your engines ability to make torque and put it out. Rotarys make kick ass torque anyway.
    With 15lbs a 2-rotor makes maybe 300 lb ft ... so whats your point?
    Show me a 1.3 litre piston engine that makes that much.<!-- Signature -->

    Umm dude torque does matter you generate it by the amount of power used. one horsepower is 33,000 lb a ft per minute. Put another way, if you were to lift 33,000 pounds one foot over a period of one minute, you would have expended one horsepower. So you suppose to generate torque w/o it you are wasting energy to do nothing.

  9. God I'd love to have this car, or better yet, learn to build my own rotary engine, then make a 4.0L rotary engine, drop it in a very light car that I haven't decided on yet, and then scare people with it <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    Oh to the person who said corvettes aren't efficient with the fuel, the 2002 vettes (What a kick to drive, best handeling car I've ever driven, and it throughs you in the seat) get 17mpg city and I think 23 highway, which is average for sports cars, I know my 4 banger MR2 get's the exact same millage. (well it used to, now it get's about 10)
     
  10. Screwing the rotory would kinda hurt dont you think. I mean its a cold metal engine. <!-- Signature -->
     
  11. screw the rotary

    they should put in some damn pistons

  14. screw the rotary? Its the best thing since toothpaste. lol
     
  15. why screw the rotary? its way better than pistons! you can never over rev it. its so dam effiecent theres not much you can break in there and you get plenty of power from it<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. I say screw piston engines. Well, not totally, but I think with as much development as piston engines, Rotaries could be a very very good engine. If only they could do something about the apex seals.. the part of the rotary which wears the quickest.

    It's actually the rotor housings, more so due to corrosion like a head in a piston motor.

    Back in the 70's, the piston motor very nearly got wiped out. Ford was oh so close to phasing the rotary in across it's entire range.
    Food for thought...
     
  18. here's a little more food for thought, for all the vette people and their bad ass v8's, GM was originally going to put 4 rotor engines into the vettes. due to the rotary being such a new engine at the time and gas and emmissions and stuff, they chose the piston engine. <!-- Signature -->

  20. does anybody know if a rotary engin will fit in the 92 mazda 626? i want one bad but already have so much invested in the 626, rotary rocks

    Why do you need gobs of torque in a car that weighs in at around 850kg! That's fully street registered BTW. Good enuf for 8.43 down the mile. This Dyno comp must stipulate a max of 15 psi boost, this car runs a bit higher boost to give 700hp.

    www.pacperformance.com.au

    Check out the vid's page
     
  24. WHATS THIS???? TURNING UP BOOST GIVES HIGH HP/L???? Well, i guess you can crank the boost to high heaven and get low 1/4 mile times, but the more boost, the less times it'll make it down that quarter mile.

    Dont get me wrong, I like this car and rotary engines, but most of the time, cranking up boost to get ridiculous hp/l figures makes for a short lived engine. It's pretty cool... for the few minutes that it is running.

    Der
    Of course winding up the boost gives out ore HP, like increasing/reducing the pulley on a supercharger. And yes, it's primary purpose is for strip which means the motor get's pulled down reguarly. I know of a few who do it after each meeting.
