    so why do you faggots have giant boners over rotaries, they're literally the worst engines.

    They have their own set of advantages and disadvantages like any engine. Its up to the driver to choose what style best compliments their driving technique. No style of engine is truly bad, only some instances of it are.
    I personally do not prefer rotaries but their definitely a force to be reckoned with and most certainly shouldn't be sold short.

    -edit-

    Rotaries have a high power per liter, fewer moving parts and they typically sit in the higher rpm ranges.

    However they burn gas and oil at an alarming rate, have critically low torque, suffer at cold starts way worse than a normal piston engine, and the parts for them are very expensive.

    Honestly, not really.
    They're underpowered, inefficient and sound like vacuum cleaners.
    It's the Mac of the engine world.

    I agree, this is why I prefer piston engines.
    However, the fewer moving parts should reduce mechanical stress, its tendency to stay in the high rpm ranges should definitely suit some drivers.

    I wouldn't call them underpowered, but they are INSANELY inefficient.

    The best economy-tuned 13b rotary will get HALF the mileage of the equivalent piston engine.



    But take this into account: 1.3 liters of rotary can produce as much power as piston engines with sometimes a liter more displacement.



    The problem is, the more that the rotary engine is pushed (bigger ports, boost, etc.) has a much more significant effect on its durability. ANY rotary guy can tell you that the bigger the port, the fewer miles it's going to take to wear it smooth out.

    Piston engines aren't the epitome of efficiency, mind you. But they are much moreso than the rotary engine. Despite all of the moving parts and things that can go wrong, two engines taken care of in the same way, over the same period of time, making the same power, but one being a rotary -- it will always be the first man down.



    I'm not knocking the rotary engine at all, it's a cool principle. But it's far from perfect.



    I mean, think about this, the 3T which was an equivalent piston engine in the days of the 13b, has pushrods and I still see people making more power out of them than the 13b. Especially those puerto ricans. They go crazy over the Toyota T motors. I don't know why.




    Anyways, rotary isn't someone's choice because it's better -- it's their choice because it's different. Anyone who says otherwise is lying to your face.



    If I got an RX-7? I have always had an engine in mind for a swap. Something cheap, easy to work on and reliable. These things made 115hp on ~7PSI through that tiny turbo, out of 1.5 liters. And still got better fuel economy than the Wankel. The 13B-RESI may have had 20 more horsepower, but the E5T has tons of potential, considering they are an iron-block engine and have a pretty good breathing head.

    Actually, I think I.... I think I have a 5T sitting in a shed at a friend's house that was supposed to be mine a long time ago. I might see if he still has it.

    You ask them, One has said you're annoying. One has said that he doesn't believe it. Bitching every time we played a game isn't a great way to keep friends, every time any of us joked you quietly said in the background "Oh my god" and then huffed a deep breath because someone mortared your fucking base on RUSE or spun you out in TDU2. Becoming a social recluse is a surefire way to lose them. I called you out for lying about your drag races and you pitched a hissy-fit that nobody believes your fairy tales. I didn't want to take it this far, but you wouldn't accept that people don't believe your lies. Nobody believes that you beat brand new muscle cars in your slow anti-econobox.
    I've tried to be nice, you wouldn't allow it.
    I honestly wasn't even being serious, I was just trying to get a rise out of you. But seeing that you are an egotistical douche with ultra-huge self entitlement, I've become completely serious.

    Also:
    I'm saving up to move to HK with him, so shuushh.

    You've tried to be nice? Really? The only one that wouldn't allow it was you when you constantly pulled the same fucking shit you've pulled today ALONE in both this thread AND the photos thread.

    And what the fuck did you expect from trying to get a rise out of me? You got a rise out of me. BIG FUCKING SURPRISE THERE. If you egg me on and egg me on and egg me on, of COURSE I'm going to act like an egotistical douche with ultra-huge self entitlement, WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU EXPECT?

    This isn't the place for this. Grow the fuck up for christs sake.

    Going to DMV tomorrow hopefully to pay off the fees for the 240sx title.

    If everything goes smoothly, I can finally drive the thing home. I am unemployed so my dad had set up a payment plan with the mechanic which shouldn't put too much of a strain on our finances. The windshield will hopefully be covered by his insurance so it's free. All the other stuff like steering wheel and interior stuff, I should be able to order soon. I'm currently looking for medical agencies so I can get hired as a medical assistant to pay off stuff for my new car.

    Also, I got pulled over tonight by a ninja police when I accidentally tapped the headlights off of my dad's Mazda when I was driving home. They're nice enough to tell me to turn them on, must've did it when I used the turn signal. You don't realize the feeling of anxiety when there's red and blue on your tail until you get it

    Oh wait it's just people bitching again. People drive other cars, with different engines, made in different countries. Stop being a twat just because it's different and appreciate what we're all here for, cars.

    Apart from diesels because they're gay.

    If fuel didn't cost the equivalent to $9 a gallon in the UK I'd own something like that.

    It's really a personal thing that shows its ugly teeth out in public sometimes.
    Both of our cars were made by Japanese companies. I have no idea where mine was actually made though.

    Saw that... sorry about your loss, Justin. Hope everything works out.

    On a side note, I picked up a legit Sparco Torino II racing seat yesterday used for $140. These go for $500 new, I'm stoked! (sorry for the terrible cell phone picture, it's very clean, the picture makes it look dirty)
