seti: that was great.

kinder: anything is possible if you've got the time and the money. and then maybe some more money after that...enter full restorations of crx's with k20 engines, b series with massive boost, and you can't forget the few crx's that have had a v-8 and a blower put in and you can barely see forward out of the windshield.

definate that supra tail lights are mandatory... :lol:

There are many more efficient ways to make power out of a crx, though still, i'll give you points for Originality...

what was the old reply to these types of questions?

Show me 10 grand, you're engineering degree, and one other thing, and then maybe, just maybe it would work

If you've got the money...........

This'd be a very possible thing to do though.

And guys, enough of the F&F quote crap, and retarded replies when questions like this come up? Why can't a serious answer just be given? Its easy, and it won't make new members feel threatened to post questions... Think about it. It may be retarded to you, but it obviously isn't to the person asking about it. Chill out, and have fun, and think outside the f-in box..... If everyone was as close-minded as you guys, thered be no swaps, no k-series anything, and we'd all be driving around in bone stock cars that all look exactly alike.

:roll:

It could certainly be done I think. I'm just wondering if there were any front-drive rotary cars, or if the engines would bolt up to any of Mazda's front drive trans.

If you can answer that question, then fab up mounts and figure out the wiring, you'd be just about done. Certainly not easy, and you don't have the benefit of people doing it before, so you're pretty much on your own.

Having Measured a 3-rotor with the idea of getting something like this to work, it could definitely work with a 2-rotor. There would be a couple of insignificant, and very easy things that would need to be done. One, would be custom axles, and a custom intermediate shaft bracket.... no biggie if you have the skill to pull this swap off. Also, you'd have to build an adapter plate for a tranny. your benefit, is that since it spins a proper direction, you could literally shoose from almost any tranny you wanted to use in any car... after all, you have to make new mounts for it all anyway...

The biggest drawback to this car, would be that it'd be for fun only... there are no sanctioning bodies out there that are pleasant to cars that have motors in them from other manufacturers (unless it is an older toyota with a rotary in it, and rwd... lol!).

If you can -seriously- fabricate/weld, and are comfortable with it, then i'd say go for it........ however, if you were that comfortable with it, then you probably wouldn't have asked the question in the first place.... but i'll still try to answer it anyway. lol!

In all honest the idea isnt that far out there if you look at the majority of the top end auto-x cars in the modified divisions at championship levels they almost all have rotarys due to the power to weight that they have it is a good idea but as far as practicle, only if you have your own shop a lot of experince and a very big budget
