  • Time for a rotary in the mix

    This will be a fun season!

    I will be bringing my 81 RX7, with an 87 Rotary Turbo II swap, out to play in 2011. My car is completely stripped down, just me the shell and a fuel injected, intercooled turbo! The car weighs in at 2032lbs with approx. 240 rwhp.

    From the looks and sounds of some of the real nice cars that other "newbies" are bringing, this will be good!!

    Cheers!

    Welcome Steve! - that combo sounds like a recipe for a wicked-fast car.

    There are a couple other rotaries in the series but none which have lost that much weight!

    Have you classed it yet? Where did you end up?

      I did a quick run through of the PIP and it said GT1.....I'm going to have a closer look and maybe ask some questions!

          The emission stuff called "the rats nest" was removed, but the motor, manifolds and turbo are all stock. I had to put in a basic ECU chip to keep the turbo at stock PSI and not spinning off into space because of some of the vac stuff removed.

              Thats great Steve. Do not forget about the tire bonus and enter your car into the CCDB to verify where you think you will be.

              I hope you are still coming to race also!!!

                      $9K if only! I'd feel like I'd gone to heaven. Thank goodness my daughter now has a good paying job and I'm off the hook.

                        That is way too much for just 1 HP. My daughter rides and it costs me less than $2500/year.

                        Which by the way is the cost of a set of rims I would like

                            Hi Steve,

                            Welcome aboard! Sorry to highjack the thead back to its original topic... Just a thought about sound levels if you're running a straight pipe without a muffler. My experience so far is that rotary engines with this setup are quite loud. Since Mosport and Shannonville don't test for sound that may not be an issue however I think the rule book lists some db limits per track, I'm not sure. The rule book link is currently down so I can't check on it.
