The Wildest RX-7 Build Ever? Visiting Rob Dahm's Rotary Palace

  • Published: 09 September 2019
  • Some of you may remember Rob Dahm when he visited us here in the studio for Hertbreak - or you may know him as the man who's been working on one of the wildest RX-7 projects we've ever seen attempted. We're talking about all wheel drive, sequential, four-rotor turbo havin', 2000 horsepower pushing madness. Along with some other past, current, and future builds Rob is working on. Either way, we're always hyped to squad up and roll out to our buddy Rob's place to see what he's up to.

    That’s a Dorito hand signal, the universal sign for rotaries. I don’t even know what the Illuminati is so stop coming at me with that crap 😂

      @Richard Herring more like the illumarito. Also--- the illumarito (aka the world's first glow-in-the-dark burrito) would be an awesome food truck item at music festivals. Who wants to go 50/50 with me onan illumarito dorito-powered food truck?

      Hey, Rob!

    Good luck getting any reasonable amount of air through those air intake runners with the 120 deg short radius bend in them

      Hi Hoonigan
      ! Hey people! My dream is a motorcycle. My name is Dmitry, I am 25 years old, and all my life I have been fond of motorcycle topics. But at this time, I can not afford to realize my dream because of a lack of money. And I decided to try my luck by writing here, maybe someone can make one dream come true for one person and stay in my memory and in the memory of my environment for life! Motorcycle - Honda XR650. For me, this purchase needs to be saved for a long time, for someone it is quite feasible. I really hope that I will find such a person, because we live once and I would like to be part of such a story, if it happens.

                            Spamming at this point but someone needs to hook up #hertlife with a 4rotor, it would be sick seeing him ripping a car that sounds like a 787B.

                                              FYI, and I am probably the only one who cares or noticed, but the rotary NSU engine you pictured is not a rotary but a four cylinder inline air cooled one from a Prinz.
