Popular YouTuber Rob Dahm managed to break a half-mile speed record for rotary vehicles with his three-rotor Mazda RX-7.
The highly modified Mazda managed to produce 835 horsepower at the wheels on the dyno the week before and this was its first chance to prove its huge power out in the open.
Rob Dahm was able to hit 177mph from the standing start, and beating a previous record by 3mph and despite short-shifting in second, indicating that there is probably more speed hiding in this rotary beast.
Getting this thing to work was far from easy, and eventually it was all worth it. And as the bonus, Rob Dahm confesses that this vehicle is actually the testbed for parts destined for his other build, and that insane all-wheel drive four-rotor RX-7 we saw at the last SEMA show.
With Mazda still absent from a whole rotary thing, it is great to see the Dorito enthusiasts keep building awesome cars. Watch the video below and enjoy.
