well, by the simple meathod of transative property, we'll be able to draw a defintete conclusion.
First of all, rotors are subject to rust because of the lack of correct oxygen levels getting to the apex. Those oxygen levels are primarily controlled by the amount in intake thrust multiplied by the CO2 levels that entail direct fluxuation between the outside air and NOS. In turn, that air is breathed through the lungs of chickens, which are slightly smaller then 1/5 of a rotor (each lung). When your car ECU factors in the shape of the rotor to the unique equivalency of approximently that 1/5 of a chicken lung, the results are unianmous...inverse, but yet spontanous stimulation of the olefactory bulbs/nerves in your nose. Those send a signal to your brain representing the scent of iron, which is incorrectly translated as a form of meat due to their similarity of both composition and atomic number. Ironically, that will more then often respresent the whitest meat you've ever ingested...which usually reverts on back to chicken.
Clearly, you can see that the direct variance between chicken and rotors isn't of the smell, but the way is is derived. Are your rotors rusted? More then likely. But that doesn't mean that you're REALLY smelling chicken. It's all in your head. You're really smelling rusty rotors, and probably didn't even know it.
Pour a whole can of WD-40 in yur engine. It cleans that rust right off.
PLEASE NOTE BEFORE READING: This is the method I've used on my 2nd generation RX-7's. I am not sure if it will have the same effects on a Renesis, with its super-computer and all. Anywho..
I'm going to reccommend distilled water...instead of WD-40. The WD-40 causes lubrication for that exact moment, but when it dries, it actually leaves the spot LACKING lubrication. For the brief couple of moments it is lubricating, it could be enough for a seal to be misplaced. But, in that amazingly hot combustion chamber, it will be dry almost instaneously. This would make for some pretty bad situations inside the engine..nameingly lack-of lubrication to the apex seals...
Find a vacuum hole that evenly goes to both rotors, get a gallon of distilled water, start the car, and let it drink in the water. Do about 1/2 of a gallon, wait 3 minutes (or all the smoke to clear) and then do the other 1/2 gallon. You'll need a friend to be holding the throttle at or above 3000rpm to keep the engine from stalling.
