Yeah... no.

Torque means nothing without revs, unless you just want to break things and smoke tires.

Radiators being inches away from the headers, looks legit.

Dude shoulda ran double 13B turbo motors with 1 giant turbo powering both motors... would have been the first 6 rotor vehicle that sounds like a beast.

I wonder how much fuel those thirsty beasts consume, and is that fuel cell in the back big enough...

Is that a hardtop for another car, just installed backward?

I read somewhere it's made from two karmon ghia hardtops. looks slick to me. That would be a nice kit car with 1 engine.

Some pictars from the 24hrs of Lemons at TWS





My favorite at the race.

The speakers were playing "I can't drive 55" most of the time.

V8 swapped RX-7

So. -------. Boss. I came ten times watching that video. The Group B Quattros always seem to have more turbo noise than any other car I've seen and the spool sounds really unique- more hi pitched. Anyone know why that is?

IIRC those cars didn't use blowoff valves because of the loss of boost pressure. The factory race team didn't care about compressor surge shortening the life of the turbo when they could repair/replace every week. Probably pretty much has an open exhaust and a screamer wastegate dump as well.

13B is a 2 rotor. You probably meant 20B?

6 rotor has been talked about before but never done AFAIK. Kind of like that V16 thing, I'm not sure what the point would be besides bragging rights. I would rather have a properly built LSX based engine than 2 iron block SBC's.
