    I've just found more rust than i'm comfortable with and don't want to fix it.


    the plan right now for car #2 is swap a rotary engine into something else. Probably a BMW just to anger Duerden.

    needs a funeral of some kind, or to be blown up, def needs something

    meh, it's the charger. It's never run a race, and all i've done to it is change brake lines. I'm selling it. Going to ask 1200 so that I get about 900. That will give me the money to go and buy the donor BMW.

    The daytona on the other hand is sticking around for a long time more.

    no. I have too much money/blood/sweat/time into that car. I'm going to build a faster car to keep us entertained, and we'll keep the daytona as the weird "competitive" car. I want to win IOE and C-class with the daytona. Then do things like twin charge it. The new build we have no prayer of winning overall, so it's just for fun.

    It absolutely is a made up name, but is 100% accurate to what I plan on building.

    You really are a glutton for punishment Chris.


    If you haven't had enough punishment with this new project, let me know and i'll put you in touch with my ex wife.

    Seriously, what's wrong with a rotary? Plenty of teams run them without issue. Just keep the NA versions cool and they last a long time.

    What kind of power do you get from an NA rotary?

    About 146hp, which is more than enough when you're running a stripped out late 80s bmw.

    Duerdens e30, with a "chip" and exhaust dyno'd at 101whp on the original engine

    So, yep you're right

    The NA RX7 i drove in CA was fantastic. First time i've ever been able to pass people with ease. This build should be similar.

    Going to keep the new build registered for some street driving. should be fun.
