    Mazda Rotary Engine

    armilite, Nothing is free, but if you want cheap rotary and light, go a single rotor, fixed ignition, belt reduction drive, carburetion, and P port. 100 HP or 150 HP with a turbo but that complicates a simple system, increases weight and cost. All these have already been done, but depends on...

    Reduction drives

    Erik, The tracy PSRU is in the US, so freight becomes a huge issue for price. I have already mortgaged a kidney to get it there. Still I have a few options re redrives. I have a prototype here that eventually I will get together. It is one of the originals where I used bronze bushes for the...
