That is some ******* sick ****! I want to know the specs on that engine, but I don't want to read more than I have to on m net. A 13B NB running mid 7's... never would have thought it possible.

Lol @ all the classic rotary hate. Apex seals aren't exactly the problem they used to be. Especially if an Aussie or Kiwi built the motor. Those guys are on the cutting edge of rotaries.

Hey All,

The engine is a 13b turbo. Its running a GT47R turbo with 10 x 2000cc injectors and its on Methanol.

The car doesnt handle corners as good as a stock miata but Im sure it still handles corners better than a lot of cars

Its still a Miata, it just has a rollcage, rear clip with rails and a 9 inch diff, a 13b engine and a big rear spoiler

Its not going to have an issue with apex seals.... The only problem I am going ot have with the engine is if it bogs off the line then it may blow the motor, but as long as I dont do that then its all good...

Im glad most of you like the car
