My DS helmet is going in the mail today! I'm thinking a single horn, unicorn style. Would that make me a bullicorn? :

Wankles always put on a good flame show, the Mazda race cars use to throw out a garbage can size flame out the side pipes. The super hot exhaust keep the fumes hot enough to ignite when the exit the pipe and hit the O2 in the air.

Seems like an indication of highly inefficient combustion....

That car would be illegal to drive in MI. State law prohibits vehicles that emit heavy smoke or flames.

It's not really as large a flame as the pic implies.

Yes. One of the reasons the original wankels went away. The new ones are better.

Ohio State Patrol hasn't got a lot of humor, either. Whether MI will enforce their laws is unknown.

I never see much enforcement here in rural areas. Just stating the law on the books. BTW, modern electronic fuel injection eliminates off-idle torching.

At risk of creating more talk and less pitchers, I have a question about the Mazada.

How come it appears periodically that the flames come out one exhaust and not the other?

Is this a wankel thing or do all dual exhausts(that emit flames) do this?

Thanks.

Except when you're running a ton of anti-lag...
