Mazda RX3 (Godfather) & Datsun 1200 drag race.
Mazda RX3 almost hits the wall. The RX3 is known as the Godfather, it runs
a 20B rotary engine. The other car in the race is a Datsun 1200 ute from
Jett Racing, fitted with a Mitsubishi 4G63. Action was captured at Jamboree
2011 @ WSID (Western Sydney International Dragway) Eastern Creek, N.S.W.

Motorvation 25, 2011. David Moulds going for a cruise around the Motorplex.
The night before David qualified 1st place for the Open Class (naturally
aspirated) burnouts. No easy feat considering Motorvation is one of
Australia's largest car shows.
Part 12: 13B Rotary Engine Rebuild - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration
Just as I promised last episode, it is finally time to build the engine!
Part 12 of my RX-5 Cosmo restoration covers the entire process of building
the 6 port 13B Mazda rotary engine. While this engine is a hybrid of GSL-SE
RX-7 and Cosmo parts, the process is the same for any rotary from a 12A to
a 13B NA, 13B turbo, 13B-REW or any
other variant of the 13B. This video shows the whole process of the engine
build, starting from measuring the rotors and covering everything else
including clearancing the side seals, assembling the rotors, complete
assembly the short block, setting the eccentric shaft end play and
installing the front cover and everything underneath it. It's probably the
most complete engine build video outside of what you can buy from the
vendors, and as such, is an hour long. After this one, I'm going back to
videos under 20 minutes. But for now, grab a beverage of your choice, sit
back, and enjoy.
"WONNA GO" firey burnout @ motorvation 25 per
when it got lit up the paint around the tires bubbled D: on the upside,
next time i see this car it might have new paint..... it sure does whip
some wicked nuts with 1000hp being pumped out of the methanol fueled
supercharged drag engine.
