No pics of the rotary in the mag...just checked the website too, hadnt seen them on their either.

It is however, a 228hp turbo, six speed and brakes taken from the rx8 too. it'll be at the Essen motorshow

Good thing since the stock NC units are terrible.

Whats with all the arguments lately?
Are the planets out of some astrological alignment with certain starts or what?

The Renesis engine doesn't suck from what I can tell. However, Mazda did screw up when they claimed 240hp and it didn't even make 200. But thats hardly the engine's fault.

If they were smart, they would have mad a version with a 20B in it.....lol

I really hope your kidding
You got a problem with rotary engines? Maybe you can enlighten as to what is so funny?
No I don't. The RX8 engine is a joke, quite literally.
Why don't you present some factual information to back up your opinion of the Renesis instead of just posting inane negative comments?
Back up my opinion? There wasn't any accusations to back up really, but if you want a dyno plot of a stock RX8 Renesis here you go :?:
