you are so annoying
Really? Look at the mountain of money they threw at the RC45... mind you, may be they have since learned their lesson, lolRotary would not be fuel efficient and the development costs would probably be more than even Honda could swallow, much less Norton.
Well........to be fair, the RC45 did win 1 WSBK championship. Despite getting it's ass completely beat in 6 others, that 1 should qualify it as a success.......no?Really? Look at the mountain of money they threw at the RC45... mind you, may be they have since learned their lesson, lol
I fear Larry (or his Downunder disciple Aushole) may have hacked into 916's account....
Yup and the issue was never ability to compete but the disagreement among manufacturers as to the "true" displacement of a rotary. Rotaries don't need to enter MGP to have a successful record, esp. compared to the V4, their the only Japanese motor to ever win LeMans with Mazda, hardly the largest of the manufacturers.The rules against engine with non circular bores has been in effect for YEARS and YEARS.
No more quasi 4-cylinder 8-valve Siamese piston NR500/750 type stuff here...or rotaries. Or super/turbo-chargers/NOS.
Nothing new here folks.
