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

  • Published on Sep 9, 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!

    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.

    I hope that motor gets put to good use honestly. Not just put in a drift car used to simply spin the wheels where he could do that with 600hp easy
