    If only it was a .GIF of it spinning. That would be orgasmic!

        Shots of a rotary spinning is extremely hypnotic though. It's so bizzare and elegant at the same time.

                  im guessing the red flash is supposed to represent combustion. it looks like a pp housing, with the 2 black marks on the left side, the bottom is located where the exhaust should be, the top where the intake should be.

                  i guess it could be upside down, but then the ports would still be in the wrong place.

                  still cool, just backwards

                      I never read up on rotary technology, but is the shape of the chamber an oval rather than a circle, because it would be hard to completely get rid of the exhaust gasses otherwise?

                        Like you can see it's an oval

                          Well, yes, I can see...

                          Or is that reply your inventive way of saying...

                            ^ You are correct, sir! The shape of the chamber is an extremely important feature of rotary engines. Think about compression. A piston in a cylinder is relatively easy to think about, but watch the rotor in Renesis' post earlier, and see how the size of the "combustion chamber" is compressed by the "fat - 8" shape....whoever originally came up with rotary engines (I forget the name) was incredibly smart.

                              I assume his name is Wankel since rotary engines are also called Wankel engines?

                                ^ Right, that't it, Wankel.

                                  Howstuffworks.com has a pretty cool animation and explination of how a rotary works.

                                  Check it out here: http://auto.howstuffworks.com/rotary-engine8.htm

                                  If you click on the "Click Here for Cycle Breakdown" button in the little Flash animation there is a very clear breakdown of the compression, combustion and exhuast stages of the rotary.

                                    well my opinion on rotary engines, shit , it looks like a washer maching.



                                    pistons pump!! rotarys rinse, dry, repeat.

                                      You can have all the pistons you want, I'll take the washer thank you very much.
