    This post was pretty useless. Do you even think before you type?
    ?

    You seem to be having a problem discussing cars?

    You don't like cobras, don't know much of anything about them, and... ?

    You don't want to learn about what they can do and feel they can only compete in a straight line and consider evo's "insane?" Go ahead and be ignorant, I can see the radical topic shift of having a GT500 mentioned really threw things off for you.

    yet, I actually have experience with rx7's, and they aren't if you know how to take care of them! Have you ever had one, I doubt it! Its funny, only people who haven't had one are the one's who declare how unreliable they are... or they were a moron and took crappy care of the car and drove it like $#@!. That is honestly the BEST car I ever had by a WIDE margin. ANd this is in company of a 400hp stealth tt, 400 awhp EVO, 300 awhp Audi S4, and this turbo M3. I never had to rebuild the motor and it was only stupid cheap little $#@! that I ever had to replace on the car. Its just an awesome car and deserves your respect.

    You have to admit you really have to know what you are doing though. How many guys ruin the seals?

    I didn't know much of anything about wenkles when I got it but I learned quick. Its all in the tune and how well you maintain it. detonation from bad gas was my #1 concern. Sure, they are more fragile than piston rings, but payoff much better per liter. Rotary's are nearly indestructible n/a, which is why my next one will be an N/a 4 rotor. 600whp from 2.6 l and 11-12k rpms is pure sex.

    Who does an NA 4 rotor?

    What will you be using this motor for?

    Trust me, I'm a big fan of rotary motors and wish they had a broader application.

    There are a few NZ and Japan companies that make 4 rotor e-shafts, but 2 13b e-shafts can be modified and fit together. The simple explanation, kiwi-re 4 rotor shaft and modified 13b irons/housings, special bearings, lightened higher compression rotors, etc. There is alot of modification and specialized parts that are also needed, but I dont want to get into it too much. These motors are EXTREMELY RARE and many do not even attempt it because you really need to know what you are doing. THis would go in a 3rd gen Rx7, some racing, some driving on weekends, etc. Best part is the sound. Check you tube as there are some great examples.

    Wow you have had some slow heavy awd cars in the company of a rwd light.2 seater. In that company anything would be fast. Even a turbo miata LOL.
    That was a really poor comparison. Try harder bud.

    As for reliability, how come almost every single Gen3 for sale online has had the engine seals or actual engine replaced before 100K miles (these are stock cars)? The only reliable mod to those cars is an LS1 swap, but those can be costly.

    The only good thing about that car is its looks, handling, and aero. Nothing else.

    He is giving his personal experience with his personal cars, what is wrong with that exactly?

    All of my past cars were 11 second cars except the S4 which was a DD when I had the FD. Hell, my first car was the stealth and I put that 3,800 lb car into the 11's when learning about turbos. I wouldn't call any of those cars slow. My Evo weighed 3200 lbs with me in it... wouldnt call that heavy. The Evo would have felt really fast compared to a turbo miata because I whored quite a few of them. What do you have that is so bad ass you can say this to my cars? All of these would most likely whore anything you have.

    You are proving my point perfectly that only people who have zero personal experience with RX7's think they know about them (but just dont). I love your idea of proof with the for sale ads. As I said and you seemed to fail to read, they are more prone to fatigue than piston rings, but do last long and are reliable when taken care of and tuned right. Most seal failure is in the wake of detonation from a bad tune or bad gas and the operator not lifting when it knocks. I never had one failure and I ran 384 rwhp on the stock twins.
