Yo if you drive a rotary daily get the fuck in here and tell me about it
There's not much to tell honestly, it's a car and I drive it to places. Sometimes those places include racetracks.
You turn it on. You don't rev it to the moon like an idiot. You drive normally till the temps get up. You rev it to the moon like an idiot. I have an sa and its been pretty much bullet proof if you just maintain it normally.
That dude is a faggot
if you were to unmeme that car it's cool
>gotta pop the hood after a drive to dissipate heat better
I think that's pretty cool in some sorta weird way.
its fun. sound is unique. loves to rev high
gets real hot after a while. my a/c doesnt work to boot
not hard to work on at all. just time consuming.
let it reach operating temp before you give gas
dont park it on a hill ever
invest in parts that keep the engine cool
>dont park it on a hill ever
every time i enter rotary threads a new thing appears one musn't do with one
Rotaries really only have two advantages vs piston engines.
1. They sound unique.
2. They can rev higher.
In every other way, they are decidedly inferior.
They have worse emissions (they burn oil).
They get poor fuel economy.
They make very little torque.
They are not as reliable (short term) nor do they last as long as regular piston engines.
The only reason that anyone gives them a look is that they are the stock motor in a few well-sorted, RWD sports cars, all of which are vastly improved when you pitch the rotary and include a regular engine.
Mazda continues to produce them because of brand pride and because its easy to distinguish otherwise middling cars by a unique engine. No other manufacturer has bit on them because they suck and there aren't solutions for the problems inherent to the engine.
Most cars over a few years old do that
>poor fuel economy
Pretty much on par with a V6
>very little torque
So does a Honda
>Not as reliable/don't last as long
Any engine will shit itself if you don't take care of it
>thinks burning oil isn't a rotary standard
>thinks v6s get 10 mpg in the city
>cites Honda engines as a good comparison
Only thing you're right is the reliability. An n/a rotary is rock solid. Simple, small, light. All the wrong things occur when you add forced induction.
>v6 bad mpg maymay
>mfw my 350z does 21/mpg
It's literally meant to make people mad, which I fucking love. He got a great chassis and put a great motor into and made it look "great" (subjective). I'm sure it's fun as hell and does properly piss off all the rich pricks. So as much as I love the rotary, this makes me smile so much.
I also hate hipsters, but damn this is too good not to love.
Driven an N/A 13b Bridgeport in a 929 and went hard as fuck.
Found the actual car on google images
