It's a link to a Rx-7 FCs running a 9k rpm for 5 minutes straight and it dies. Someone told me at the Los Angeles Chinatown Showoff that rotaries dies easily. Maybe someone can shed some light.

From what limited knowledge I have about the Mazda rotory (Wankel sp?) engine I think he might have just gotten a new engine.....I have been told that they are tough and most the time you only need to change the gasket.

Who really knows unless you are there.

Ah, yeah that engine was probably a piece of crap and he probably was getting a swap done to it so he had a spare engine to destroy or something i duno. All I know is that once you overheat the rotary engine, you can say adios. (Anyone wanna go out for some AMF haha) That's what I was told by my friend whos fanatically into Mazdas, he has 1 FC convertible and a FD he imported from Japan. But yeah, they were most likely getting a swap done and got bored or somethin. who knows.

^ Yup, those motors can hold up with ease and rev high. It was most likely a throw away and he was putting in work soon. Ever see the video of the purple 1st gen RX7 doing a burnout for a contest and blowing his motor like 5-6 minutes later? Awesome.. crowd was giving props!

I have no idea but it is a totally different engine with pistons, unlike the Mazda. I would guess not long, I would imagine a rod would be thrown or a gasket blown.

I am sure there are videos of it.

Looks like the engine was already blown to begin with, you can see in all the blue smoke coming out of the exhaust from the beginning. Also although rotary engine's can be made to be fast once the apex seals blow its over. A lot of the FD guys have been trasnplanting V8 engines from domestic cars and Toyota Engines from supras I.E. 7mgte, 1jzgte because they're tired of their Rotary engines. Here's some info for you guys. http://www.aaroncake.net/rx-7/blown.htm

What ever happened to those experimental quasi-turbine motors that were like rotories but instead of a spinning triangle it was a square.

Yeah I've heard of people using 2 stroke oil in the gas to prolong the life of the seals.

DRFTW! if only...

It shouldnt but when my tranny blew on me the car would rev to 7k rpm, car still runs fine just make sure to not let it over rev if you do end up with a problem like that.

All I can say. I feel bad on the car you ar driving klelpto.

I love the rotary bashing. I want a rotary. I got hooked on the initial d thing for awhile and I wanted an FC. So when I saw the VID, I am like what the f**k are you doing?

Just to let all of you know, the rear rotor had zero compression, and you had to push start it for it even to start up. There is a new built 13B in that first bay, waiting to go into it as soon as this ended.

Yup, that was hard for me to watch. Don't care if the motor wasn't brand new, you part it out to somebody that could use whatever from it. Bunch of bored "kids" throwing away money.

Asking for trouble, even though rotaries are known to have high redlines (due to the lack of valvetrain etc).. Not sure what owner was trying to prove..

Tons of potential tons of headaches and tons of continual risk of a breakdown. They are very tempermaental engines wiht a narrow safe operating heat range. And they came with undersized radiators and overly complex boost vacuum hoses.
