I wish you could have quickly thrown some $$$ and time at the AWD 4-Rotor non RX-7 and raced him again. Both cars fully tuned and in prime race condition, I think you could take him with a little bit more racing under your belt!!!

HAPPY Birthday! ****************** Please visit my Timeline and make comments! I need to hear your participation and interest! GREETINGS and WELCOME! Thanks for being a Friend, come to visit often, contribute often, send all your Friends to visit, please send a membership request to the Dissenter/Disinter Group, enjoy, stephen.erdmann1. ****************************** PLEASE COME AND COMMENT ON MY TIMELINE, I need your participation! *************************************************************** Comments: Stephen Erdmann: Wow! Fakebook is at it again! It says my website is violating their 'community standards' with dangerous material. Go look for yourself at WordPress/Stephen Erdmann! My reply; "Why are you censoring my website on WordPress? it is a not-for-profit site and is bland compared to the many postings on Facebook presently. There is nothing in content than is already on Facebook. I protest, as my site is acclaimed by many members. stephen.erdmann1" Actually, Facebook is wrong in their review: 1) My website is a not-for-profit site and does nothing to increase my profit, other than give free information. 2) It does not require Facebook members to 'like' or force them to 'share' any article without their personal consent, and only can they do this after reviewing it and do it voluntarily. 3) I at no time pretend to be someone else, I fully tell who I am, without disguise or deception. If deception is invoked, it must be Facebook. In reality, the two of my Word Press articles they cite as below or 'above' their Community Standards, were HAUNTING ROSWELL LEGACY and THEY WALK NEXT TO US. You can go to my site and see those articles for yourself. There are only two or three reasons why Fakebook 'hardwired' an algorithm to censor my site: 1) It is competition to them and a threat, 2) And does not line-up with some kooky, crappy algorithm, which they always refuse to give sound reasons as to why take such an illogical stance. Omar Iamone, Trex Smith and others have found this to be true; and still have no gotten clear reasons as to their banning. As I state above, their 'list of offenses' makes a reasonable person wonder exactly what 'Community' they are striving for, certainly not one in which the 1st Amendment and our U.S Constitution can flourish.. To demonstrate their illogical operand and insanity you can still visit their 'scrubber' were it says: 1) They were wrong and they are 'putting back' the censored item ( They have not and did NOT, and have not as yet said 'when' that will happen). 2) They say they were wrong and the items DO follow their Community Standards. Yet, the scrubbing algorithm remains, in as much as I have tried posting Wordpress.. To wit: Your post is back on Facebook Yesterday We're sorry we got this wrong. We reviewed your post again and it does follow our Community Standards. Delete OTHER MESSAGES This post goes against our Community Standards on spam CLOSED Your post is back on Facebook Yesterday We're sorry we got this wrong.

Rob, I know you won't see my comment since this video is two weeks old so I'll post in again when i catch a video right when its uploaded. Despite the fact you cover your huge cocaine addiction by saying you have ADHD (kidding lol) you are one GENUINELY GREAT GUY. I have so much respect for you. Much like myself, i would rather learn through trial and error doing/building/engineering things myself than to pay a company to do those things. You are a true inspiration.

300lbs MORE then the hoonicorn WITHOUT interior and a SINGLE TURBO ROTARY......... WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?!!? Hoonicorn is SAME 4wd setup with a fucking TWIN TURBO V8 and its fully kitted out and its 300lbs LESS?!?!?!??!?!? HOW HOW HOW HOW HOW HOW HOW HNOWHO HW

No I don't think it can beat the hoonicorn ! But a 72 Aussie E49 valiant charger would.
Rulerpaco Valenzuela
I think you would loose just because the 4 rotor is not fully %100 done. now if you got more HP up top were you can make up ground fast then its going to be a close race. hopefully its a good race.
nitrion 5 months ago
Im aware that by the time this comment was posted that the race already happened. But it wasnt uploaded yet so I can still give my prediction. The 4 Rotor is unproven, and not fully dialed up. The Hoonicorn has had plenty of time to get a really fine tune, and it has proven itself. Frankly, the odds arent in the 4 rotors favor. However, Im sure I speak for all of your fans here too, have faith in the car and all the hard work youve done. Keep it up man.

I don’t agree with the tuning comment..Look what the rs3 was able to do against the hoonicorn 👇👇👇👇👇 A manual will never be able to keep up with sequential transmission... the shifting will be the downfall of the rotary

Definitely gonna have an edge. But the spirit of driving. Those physics between the tire and road are key. Feeling where you are gripping every second of the way. It’s amazing that you got to this point and congratulations man. I’m happy for you, proud of you. Keep up the good work man.

You clearly need more time..be smart about it you cant go out first time and give it 80% of power need to start slow start with the launch that alone will take time....then worry about going fast.. Good luck you got this.

What has me alittle on a over observation mode in this beast is that aerodynamic is very important and when it come to deflect and cutting out the wind,when the wind hits the car i see that the wind will go through the over cutted side fenders and the wind will go in the empty gap between the top cutted fender and the tire and that may cause a little holded back restriction ...well if im over observating ughh well just analyzing that the whole car has to have no wind restirction in that open gap.🙂🙂

Race Ken up Pikes' Peak. That would be very Manly. PPV but if you don't make it to the top I want my money back.
Belgian Rotary Performance Maintenance
If by any chance you get close to him. It wi not do it constantly. The Hoon is doing pull after pull after pull....... I have yet to see an other car do that without having to cool down in between runs. Don't do the race... But by now it's too late I guess. I see this ending in a failure.

it will be close. im very slightly leaning towards ken simply because hes had more of a chance to work out the kinks, but its really a coin toss in my mind. i WANT the rx7 to win, but if i had to pick i would lean towards the hoonicorn.

Bro i honestly think you can run him down. He will get you on the hump but too end it’s over. I love kens car but you have him beat all day in my opinion. But I also think you need more seat time as well.either way it’s going to be an amazing race can’t wait to see it...

My comment. I’d hope at the most it blew up. If I was in the same position...The car wouldn’t be my breaking point. My drive would be.
Hoopstick Performance
Man... Sooo hard to call... Imma say this... The 4 rotor definitely has the potential to run out the big end in front. Do you feel like the car is solid? I mean after the drive shaft explosions... Provided you didn't have any ADHD moments every bolt is buttoned up... drive shaft yokes... every fluid is topped off and your execution is on point I think you can take him. I think it's up to your nerves and you're driving the car absolutely especially with the dino numbers it made on low boost pressures

DeGravitized Johnson
The hoonicorn will loose... The rev range of the rotary cant be ignored
DeGravitized Johnson
However if you never road the car and dont know what it can do, adrenaline and anxiety kicking you in the face.... Depends on your demeanor.. Car for car however.. If your car was solid ans didnt break, it should win.. Awd high revving rotary plus decent geared rear end, he cant chase
DeGravitized Johnson
Pretty much... If you get the launch you win... He cant chase you

Yea this is goin to b they best n most epic and in my humble completely unprofessional opinion I think the hoonicorn is goin to win cause it’s proven n the 4 rotor isn’t YET I think another year of letting u learn the weak n strong points of ur car n then I would b able to answer that question cause I feel then it could b the craziest tie ever. Gd luck fam go crush it

The hype and anticipation for the race is so very real, but it is hard for me to fathom that this largely untested 4 rotor project has any competitive chance against the Hoonicorn and pro driver Ken Block. That goes even further when we consider it's a best of 3 race. That being said, I'm rooting for Rob as the underdog and hope you put up a great challenge to him!
