Honda HSV-010 RAYBRIG - Honda's next gen. NSX-GT
"Honda Music" is back!
This is Honda HSV-010 GT, the successor of NSX-GT. Due to too strong a
downforce, the top speed is slightly lower than the rivals such as Nissan
GT-R, but it's an ultimate cornering machine ever! And the Exhaust sound is even better than NSX-GT. I
miss the old NSX, but now HSV is becoming my new favorite Honda.

2010 at Sports Land Sugo, Japan.

Rotary Rotational Demonstration
A little video for all those folks that refuse to accept the "3:1"
principle of planetary motion inside the Mazda Rotary Engine.
EDIT: For you people that are hung up on my comment at the end of the
video, I suspect you are probably one of those at which the comment
It never ceases to amaze me how many people will see this video and
continue to argue that there is some other relationship other than 3:1
between the inside and outside worlds of this motor.
The Mazda Rotary Engine Part 1
Educational film by Toyo Kogyo about the Mazda Rotary Engine. Shows how the
Rotary engine works with comparisons to the Piston Engine. Also shows the
Mazda RX500 test vehicle on a banked circuit and the Mazda Cosmo Sport (or
110S). Originates from the late 60's.
Rotary Engine Breakthrough?
The Wankel engine always held out a lot of promise, but never was able to
fully deliver on those promises. It was never very fuel efficient, and the
Exhaust temperatures were very high.
But now an independent car tech thinks he has stumbled onto what held that

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.

What its like owning a 3 Rotor 20B RX-7
I have one of the most amazing custom RX-7s in the world. I want to share
my experience of owning and driving such a unique car.

Mazda RX8 R3 - Sound of the Rotary Engine
This is just a quick demonstration of the unique rotary sound within the
cockpit. This is NOT a 0-60mph / 0-100kmh demonstration so don't go all
"omgz so slow" as I didn't try for that, it's solely for sound.
I'll post a 0-60 in the upcoming weeks.
