I found this on an old hard drive I had from 2003, before the days of youtube. This is not me or my car. Putting it up so everyone can witness the abuse this rotary took before it finally gave up the ghost. If you don't have 10 mins, it pops @ 7:17 and fire chaos begins shortly after.
The Zero F**ks Given RX7 - /TUNED
Would you drive a car built by a teenager in his parents driveway with no
safety features whatsoever? We did, and now we'll tell you why this ugly
RX7 is so brilliant.
Evo 9000 rpm 2nd 3rd gear redline
This is my 2003 evo 8. Im just doing a 2nd 3rd gear pull. As said, I had
the camera attached to my left hand thats why I'm shifting so slow. Built
by Trevtec. I'm actually redlining at 9,200rpm. It's about 40mph in 2nd
gear 5,000rpm. And 105 in 3rd at 9,200rpm.
Motor Blow Up
What a bunch of rednecks do on a saturday afternoon. lol
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.

Engine Blow up at school
This is what happens when you don't tighten the cam shaft bolts to specs.
We took the engine apart and all of the valves needed to be replaced
because they were bent. The top of the pistons all had the indentation from
the Exhaust and intake valves.
Death of a Tempo (Engine blow)
MY old dirt track car I dug it out and fixed just to blow up! The car had
many issues, rust in many places and had been run so hard and over heated
so much that the engine wasn't worth anything to anyone, so I finished it
of before going to the junkyard.
You see the timing messed with a little, the issue was in the Dist I
switched it out with a spare and just tuned it by ear. lol. Also this car
did have water in it. Back when it was still a good race car it had dual
rads in it, one in the front and hoses inside pipe leading to a second rad
in the back, the front one busted and if you notice I have a pipe hooked
between those hoses.
