    no thats just the way it is or is it
     
  2. with three rotar's it should have more hp. there are 2 rotar rx7's that get more HP!! but i do think the car looks very nice.

    It's called reliability with semi-economy.
    'Only' 549 bhp? That's bloody heaps for a street car, i've been in 750 rear wheel HP cars, which spins it's wheels at 200 kph quite easliy.

    this goat guy is right who ever calls him a #%$ is stupid cause you just make yourself look like an ass. i work on rotarys for a living and a 3rotor has far more potential than that. ya the car is nice and pretty but do u even know how much this package cost it cost $45,000. with that kind of money i could build a 2-rotor that could run 9's in the quarter-mile and i could run 9's all night long so my conclusion is that the pettit banzai rx-7 is pretty but is slow and it is also a waste of money.

    i think that peter farrel makes a three rotar rx7 with way more power then this one

    Run 9's all night long and that's it. Kiss that $45k goodbye rebuilding the motor after every second meeting. Of course a 3 rotor can make plenty more mumbo than that, but there are people out there that like "reliability".

    Nope
    I wonder how you came up with the idea of your's tho, hmmm, very original.

     
  13. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    If my memory serves fight this car was built for sportscar GT3 spec. Pettit Racing should enter another car in this coming Rolex 24.<!-- Signature -->

  15. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    I may be ignorant to the ways of the Mazda but can anyone explain haw a 3 rotary works?
     
  16. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    A 3 rotor works just like a regular 2 rotor wankel engine except with a 3rd rotor. If you dont understand how a 2 rotor works, try looking up rotary engines or Wankel engines. Its easier to see a picture then explain
     
  17. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    Only 549 horsepower?
    this has more horsepower then a Ferrari F-50 and weighs less. i would love to see the numbers this car puts out. i always like this body style RX7 i think tis car is very sharp.
     
  18. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    you idiot, thats a crap load of hp, and look at the torque. i bet this thing kicks ass.
     
  19. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    its a fu@king racing car i dont think that the people that built this had street in mind why dont they dial in more hp out of it. it could also be restriked for raceing. <!-- Signature -->

    NO ROTARY IN TOP FEUL WHY???
     
  21. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    Because rotarys would win so much they'd ban them so what would be the point?

    Actually their are rotary top fuelers where I live, however they compete in their own class! They pop 700-1500hp, many not turbo'd just methd. But they weigh alot less.

    if you bolted together three quad rotor engines, so it displaces 7.7 litres (same as V8) and would weigh about 2/3 as much.
    You could make 1000-1800hp NA, you could probably make the engines handle 3 bar of boost for a short time, adding nitrometh you'd get what...15,000hp?

  22. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    The reason this car ONLY puts out 549HP. It's because the turbo boost is set at 12. Now if it had a turbo boost controller. This thing would put out enough to smack yo ass on yo face and call u stoopid.
     
  23. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    The real reason it makes 'only' 550hp is because its still using its stock Cosmo twin turbos. They take the 3 rotors out of the Mazda Cosmo and put it in the 7 and tune it. if you upgraded the turbo to a big single, you could make a lot more horsepower... insane horsepower!
     
  24. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    There is actually a top fuel RX7 but it only runs in the top import competitions such as the IDRC. The RX7 is ran by Abel Ibarra or somethin like that but it runs 7-8s on 1/4 mile. There is another RX7 that isnt a top fuel but it still runs 8s, I think it's one of the RX7.com cars. Any RX7 with a 3 rotor engine can produce upwards of 800hp+ it just depends on the extra performance parts that are added. That doesn't only mean turbos but full cat-back exhaust, headers, new turbo manifolds, 50 shot of nos, new ecu chip or upgraded chip, etc. There are endless possibilities of an RX7 you just have to know which ones are the best.
     
  25. Re: who thinks its odd that it only has 549 bhp?

    seems normal enought to me. anyways it looks great.
