They become a pain in the ass with high miles... Low compression, hard to start cold, etc. They do have potential though for small displacement.

they are a "neat" motor, but it's just not for me. seem to be kind of unreliable and plauged with problems, if you can get good at building and keeping up a rotory then you'll have fun

No torque from what I have seen, seems like a bad combo for drifting IMHO.

Oh yeah, and it's probably gonna blow up.

the reason why they are labeled as unreliable is because people are too lazy to properly maintain them. rotaries aren't for everyone. but if you're a dedicated individual and take care of them they can be almost as reliable as a regular internal combustion engine.

that being said, i am too lazy to own one.
