    Emilio posted this on Facebook, but I had to share it here, too. Insane SIX-rotor wankel!

    That's a pretty useless video. It's just a big motor making a lot of noise. They didn't even bother to tell us how much bhp it has on the dyno.

    But all that said, hakeem is probably rabid to stuff one of those things in his FD.

    Drive a Formula Mazda around WSIR on a long Friday open test day when you forgot to bring ear plugs. A 2 rotor motor is plenty friggin' loud. My ears rang all weekend.

    When I first got my car. It had no muffler with the exhaust exiting right behind the passenger seat. That lasted one race. But it's still to loud. I could only imagen what you had to go through. But I bet it will never happen again... LoL
