this is how we do it in Australia!
total HP is 1664
crank hp ftl
non-available 4 rotor motor ftl
apex seals ftl
setting your car on fire ftl
being ignorant ftl...
that sounded sick..
being vague ftl...
what part of what I said was wrong?
The part where you talked shit about the dude's accomplishment.
Anyway, that wasn't fire, that was leaking exhaust gas. It needs a better header gasket, but it's not catastrophic.
not my engine, but yeah its not catching on fire just a small leak no biggy
what kind of cam is in that thing
im sorry, i forgot 1664 crank hp is pussy shit.
you can peice together a 4 rotor motor, but its BOOC
apex seals ftl if you dont build it right, not every rotary motor eats them...
like said, it was just a leaking exhaust gasket, no big deal...
that thing put down 1664 crank horse power, whats bad about that..
I know you have to be joking, but I'm having such a hard time accepting it.
roller rocker cams.
it also has forged pistons.
(has an aneurysm)
all that , and on such a small compressor too!!!
definately sick... this is going in an E46 M3? This dyno vid is sick as well...HAHA "revs its tits off"
too bad u have to rebuild the damn thing everytime u rev it like that
Not really. Just run it on two-cycle oil and it'll be fine. Even the oil isn't a problem as long as there's a catalyst on the exhaust.
as weird as it is, deus is actually making sense. rotaries are designed to burn oil as they run, and running two-stroke oil helps out quite a bit. a lot of rotary guys around my area put the stuff in their gas tank every time they fill up, too. it must work, because they never have problems.
explain that mate? considering the video came out about 1 day before it was posted on here???? your an idiot fool keyboard warrior.
its my understanding the engine does 3-4 runs down the quarter then a rebuild is done..
yes this goes in the bmw.. awsome machine.
There are no oil seals on the tips of the rotors, so there's no way to lube the edges of the combustion chambers with pressurized oil because there's nothing to scavenge that oil with. (Personally, I think they could make it work, but I guess the cost:benefit ratio points in the wrong direction.) As such, the combustion chambers are lubed by spraying tiny amounts of oil into the intake along with the gasoline. It's not usually enough, though, so a lot of people mix two-cycle oil with their gas for that extra lubrication. It gets the job done, though I'd like to see some more R&D in the apex seal area.
It's a weird engine, that's for sure, but it has its charms. How many turboed engines do you know of that you can run on 87 octane with no fear of damage or power loss?
didnt think about that before. I always assumed they ran lube-less ceramic apex seals.
the more you know...
