I thought this was pretty cool. I doubt there will ever be much production like the Wankel, but time will tell.

Very cool! At first I thought it was going to be similar to the OX2 engine design, but it is quite different.

Very interesting, i wonder how the engine does on Torque?
Wankel engines are very low on torque but make up for it with higher RPM.

I wonder what applications they designed this engine for?

Wankel engines may not have much torque, but they have plenty of power. My first car was a Mazda RX-2 and even though it was small, the engine pulled really well. Now, the backfiring was another matter; the exhaust system had a "breather" tube to help alleviate that, but it was only moderately effective..

I hear that the backfiring issues was to do with the exhaust temps being very high?

Hmm the rx8 was like one hour epoxy - mix equal parts petrol to oil :-) my brothers example and all the others I have seen use oil like it's going out of fashion !
