12 Rotor Engine Running- Different Angles
Watch the last part of the video where there is a glass of water on the
engine. The engine runs so smooth it does not even ripple the water.
Looking at the glass on the back, you are seeing the reflection of the Exhaust tubes bouncing on the flat
surface of the water. The water actually does not even have a ripple.

Mazda RX-792P Hot Laps at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca | Mazda USA
We were up at Mazda Raceway this past weekend and decided to take some of
our favorites out to stretch their legs. We brought an RX-7 GTO, an
RX-792P, and one of the 787s from the '91 Le Mans race.
Pardon the wind noise—we'll get it fixed next time—but this is from the
top of the RX-792P.

"Mazda Factory's veteran Engineer, Mr. Uchitani shows how Rotary Engines
are assembled. Amazing that each RE has been built by hand until 2003!"
Handbuilt 4-Rotor Engine
This was a project that took about five years of weekends to put together.
There was a lot of trial and error as jury-rigged parts were improvised and
revised, leaks were identified and plugged, and byzantine electrical
diagrams were decoded. It still does not run smoothly, as there likely is
a problem with the intake system that has prevented smooth timing at idle.
But she runs!
lots of people wanted to know where the E-shaft came from: it was custom
ordered from a shop in New Zealand.
