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.

RX-8 vs. 500 HP BMW M5 at VIR. Mazda RX-8 wins.
Second session on Saturday, June 14, 2008. Finally let me pass after 1-3/4 laps. Both the BMW driver and I are advanced, high-performance driving instructors.
The RX-8 is completely stock except for a B&B muffler and Hawk HP Plus pads on the front. It does not have traction control or stability control. Tires are original stock street Potenzas. No doubt the M5 is stock too, and this has more to do with weight than horsepower.
Camera is a Creative Labs Vado cheapcorder stuck to the windshield with a suction cup cellphone holder. Video was recorded upside-down due to the mount, and was transcoded to rotate it. Quality suffered.
A 3 rotor and a 4 rotor engine. The 3 rotor is an engine swap from a Mazda Cosmo. The 4 rotor was a "weekends" project.
Test Drive 2007 Mazda RX-8 w/ Exhaust, and Full Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour and test drive of a 2007 Mazda RX-8. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration with a full test drive over various road scenarios you might encounter during daily driving. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
