Nice. :) Ill bet that she goes like mad with that engine.
Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Brilliant! :D
At the end of the day, it\'s meant to be fun - not a political movement! :burnout

My neighbours have a blue bugeye which they race, often comes charging past my house. Would be great if that were a Rotary!
Great Project :)

Thanks Phil, the sound of the rotary and the looks of the Bugeye make people wonder what the F is that.  It\'s been a big hit at the local car shows, most people here never seen a rotary or a Bugeye so it\'s a perfect union.
