As some of you are aware my old V8 Sprint is back in my possession.
It will be getting a 2007 Mazda RX-8 13B Rotary engine.

I’ll post updates as and when.

Currently having a bit of rust repair done.

There is a Mazda rotary powered Toledo drift car in New Zealand I think. I've seen a youtube film of it drifting around, seems absolutely awesome! Can't wait to see how this one turns out!

There’s quite a few Rotary powered cars in New Zealand and Australia.
They tend to use the earlier RX7 engine as it’s less restricted in standard form than the later RX8 that I have.
Note should of got the earlier engine.
And they love a Big Turbo out there.

Found the YouTube Link
That’s the earlier 12a engine which is smaller.
