Do you have Rx2's, Rx3's etc in the state's?? If not your missing out on, in my opinion the Best looking Mazda Rotorys(Rx2,3 and 4's)

Yes, we got R100s, RX-2s, -3s, -4s, Cosmos (RX-5), Rotary Engine Pickups (REPUs) and -7s. I like the earlier stuff too, but it's all pretty rare. I do have a '75 REPU in addition to my RX-7s. I know several people with old school rotaries...a lot of RX-2s, -3s and REPUs; one guy with a couple R100s.

Every group needs a being of infinite grandeur, whom nobody cares to listen to.

I remember an article in Popular Science, from before their Archives began, or before Mazda produced an RX, describing how the Wankel could be made in any machine shop. I don't know if Bridgeport even has the Machine Shop Academy that would have a student for such work.

Crack Pots are an important market, having the visions of things for which Language might not even exist, and a focus on Crack-Pot Management should put you in touch with some Engineers and Patent Lawyers.

I've ideas for an Amphibious Motorcycle, and an Ultralight VTOL, both of which would enjoy the elegiance of the Rotary Engine's Turbo-Reciprocation.

Hi everybody

First the basics
Robert Lara
Los Angeles California, USA
1983 RX-7 Race Car
Member of the Sports Car Club of America. (Southern Pacific Division)

I got into rotaries when I decided to pursue a life long dream and get into auto racing back in 2000. I found a class that only allowed1st Gen. RX-7ís with specified modifications to the suspension and only stock components allowed for the motors. The class is called Pro-7. We are allowed to remove all smog and non race essential components on the motor. We are only allowed to blueprint and balance the motor. Two seasons ago I decided to build the engine for the 2003 season. I had a crash that totaled the car in June of 2003. I built a new car and came back this year using my 2003 season motor. I had my last race Oct. 28, however the motor seems to have spun a rotor bearing.

Iím going to build a new motor for the 2006 season. Iím trying to gather as much information as possible before building the new motor.

I found this site by going to the rotary illustrated website. I saw the link to this forum and here I am. I hope to get all kinds of information from this site to help me build a motor that can produce more horsepower than my previous motor. I ran in the top 5 in my class that is until my motor started going soft. The class contains about 25-30 cars per race. I ended up 3rd in points for the 2005 season. With some proper help, I hope to build a motor that can take me to the championship next year. Stay tuned.

Lets see my name is Tim Baker I reside in Northeast Ohio. I have served in the military for the last 8 years, received my Applied Aeronautical science degree and am currently finnishing my first electrical engineering degree and Mechanical engineering degrees simultaneously. Im a pending memeber of the American Mechanical engineering Society.

I have 13 years cumulative experience on just about every form of Internal combustion engine except the rotary, now im looking into fixing that.

Aside from being a full time student I do port and polish work on honda/acura heads and manifolds and ECU tuning, with 1 or 2 full engine builds a year. I do it more for the love of seeing one of my engines fired up and running strong. Im looking forward to joining this comunity and am blown away by the quality of the presentations on the main site. Really a stand up job so far!

yo, im a 21 year old named Curtis, but most people here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada call me Castro, hence my forum name ^_^

last fall i Imported a 1989 RX-7 GT-X from Japan, and fell in love with it.

i've been in love with Rotaries and RX-7s since i took a ride in my aunties 1991 RX-7, and now that i own my own, i've been looking around on the internet for sites that could help me keep my 13B running great!

i stumbled on this site and haven't left it since. There is so much info on here! So much i can learn ^_^ so...ya, good to meet ya'll.

Let's get the easy part out of the way:

My name's Miguel (aka RX8-TX), I am 26 (yikes!), I currently have an '04 RX8 (duh!). I've gained a lot of interest in rotaries since 2000 when I heard & saw the Evolv concept.

I run a couple of sites dedicated to rotaries and Mazdas. I have a rather geeky character so don't ask me how to change a tire but, I can surely talk about theoretical mambo-jambo like the, not really. Razz

I am here, like most everyone else, to learn and share what little I may know.
