    Just thought I'd throw off the flow a bit and say that a supercharger that does not have a clutch, or some other un-linking method, will actually generate vacuum and sap power at certain moments. I can't remember when all this is, but I'm pretty positive it's at low RPM. So where a turbo is generating no additional boost at low RPM, a supercharger is actually robbing power.

    The newer Mercedes kompressor cars have a clutch assembly in the supercharger to prevent this. It can actually disable the supercharger at times when it's not needed, helping both power and fuel mileage.

    I personally think the guy with the FD who started this thread is full of $$$$, but you're full of $$$$ too.
    Hey, thanks for the vote of confidence.

    Anyways my point is that even a tricked out car is not going to turn 30K RPM. You talked about an F1 reaching 20K RPM which is far more believeable than a rotary engine. But were talking F1 here which cost like a million or more. Cmon guys lets get real here.

    I'm done right here. This thread probably needs to die soon cuz I'm sick of seeing it. 30K RPM is bull which was my point in the first place. As far as debating over some crazy rotary engine I really don't care cuz I'm not interested in them at all. Never have liked Mazdas and never will.

    Look i own a 93 R1 Rx-7 and you are so full of $$$$ it makes me sick. I am a member of nopistons.com al well and you dont know jack. you said your qt time was 11 sec at 160 some mph. a 11 sec qt is around 120 mph at 160 mph you are pulling low 7s. You need some serious help. And as for your turbo boosting to 45 psi i have never seen a rotary turbo ever that coudl push 45 psi. and i know every turbo from T04E - HKS T51R kai's. Once again you need help Rod. Any rotary woudl blow up at that. You dont even mention upgraded secondary injectors which you need to run high boost. I bet you didnt mention em becuase you didnt know about them. Also to run higer than 17-18 psi it's a very good i dea to use water injection. Abel is the fastest RX-7 driver around and he has never got a 6 sec qt. There is rumor of 1 6 sec RX-7 but no time slips have been shown. So dude grow up and get a life. You have no clue what you are talking about.

    You do not. Quit trying to impress people, they don't believe you.

    >Abel is the fastest RX-7 driver around and he has never got a 6
    >sec qt


    Abel's a wuss. The reason he's never gotten a 6 sec qt is because
    he sucks at what he does. Tell him to take up a different hobby,
    because he's wasting his time with cars. Maybe he'd be more
    suited towards knitting.

    >So dude grow up and get a life.

    Says the person who's arguing about Nissans.

    >You have no clue what you are talking about.

    Neither do you. You don't even make sense. It just so happens
    that my turbo boosted to 50 psi yesterday. My rotary never blew
    up, not even close.

    My car is better than yours. You're car sucks, junk it.

    You know the world is screwed up when my brilliant, thought-provoking
    Thread Sandwhich gets 4 replies, and a thread about racecars
    gets 112.
