RX8

Post by Talkiet » Sun Sep 21, 2014 9:09 pm

Drove a 2006 RX8 a short while ago and was really impressed with the power and crazy smoothness of the delivery of the power... Do they not fit in a 7 or something? Why aren't there more... Enough people must wrap RX8s around poles to ensure a supply of engines and gearboxes.

I love the sound of a well set-up rotary!

I know what you mean by the sound of an old school rotary, but a modernish RX8 sounds very little like the traditional brap brap brap... I would love a 187kw engine with a 9000rpm redline in a 7...

Rotors are so great. There should be heaps of them.
