ICE cars are dinosaurs going to extension, especially when you see the latest Kia EV6 GT trashing all super cars on a drag race. Still, nothing beats the noise, roughness and rawness if a ICE So yes ICE cars and becoming an endangered species but they'll never go instinct

Well done, for such a project and power definitely needs all of it. Are you gonna have oil level sensor, oil pressure sensor and oil temperature sensor?. Those are which will indicate on right time if something is wrong and save engine.

You should take the 3 rotor to a 2 step battle when it's finished.

Using my oracle senses, I sense this car going on a "drag week" when its ready. At least I hope it does because it would be a great time.

Hey Dahm, I need some help trying to figure out how I can adjust my ignition timing on my standalone. How do you configure the base ignition numbers and is it just knock detection from there forward?

I've got some videography tips for you. Unless you start filming or releasing in 60fps, please refrain from doing the slow sweeping camera shots. It hurts my eyes looking at this with all those jagged frames!

Hah! you finally took my advice (and I'm sure thousands of others) to move over to the Sony for the Auto Focus. I got sick of watching your non-functioning Panasonic GH5 autofocus since last year til now!

I’m not a rotary fan because there is never any content of them doing anything cool cause they are always broke

might be a dumb question but... why not just remake the oil pan if it's all hamburger'd? seems like it would easy enough to figure out what the bolt hole pattern is and just fab a new flat lip for it and weld it onto the tub. just split it along the fillet of the old flange.

It would be cool to see the 3 rotor vs. Mike Vargas’s 3 rotor

Open Wheel Rotary Car = Formula Mazda. Spec Series open wheel class with sealed 13B motors. Has been around for a long time. Big selling point was that the sealed rotaries could last 2-3 seasons without a rebuild while making the same power. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formula_Mazda
