Rotary Fake Engine

Recommended Posts

I wanted to build a Mazda RX 7 FD ever since I finished the NSX...but a RX 7 needs a rotary engine...

So I was forced to make one :)

I have been working on this little guy way too long, and when I finally got it working today, I literally had tears in my eyes :wub:

 

Its still WIP, but I am so happy right now. Hope you enjoy.

Cool, unfortunately it will hard to see in a moc

I thought of that as well, especially since the RX7 is double rotor engine. Maybe I'll just leave the front of the Engine open,like in the Video,  exept for a front support to hold the crankshaft. This way you could at least see the fron rotor reasonably well.

RX7 progress is slow but steady. A twin rotor version of this engine is already mounted, connected to a 5+R manual transmission. I thought aubout going for a quad-rotor engine, but the rear two rotors wouldn't have been visible anyways, so I scrapped that Idea.
