In one of my earlier posts I said that candy would not let cam tear apart their rx8 till he got them another one. Well now they have the next best thing. They just recieved a fresh renesis from mazda to play around with. It's in the process of being torn down and studdied now. I'll post more updates when I get them.

well I went to pettit today. Their supercharger kit is progressing nicely. I actually held the blower in my hands, so it can't be too much longer.
They have a TON of other stuff in the works. The're designing a body kit....suspension components....plus the engine is getting worked over. They seem to be really excited about that part.
The most interesting news I got from them???
They said they cracked the ECU. I don't know if they just meant that they have a piggyback unit like canzoomers in the works, or if the've actually figured out a way to re-flash the ECU. Either way I might be going back sometime in the next week or 2 to find out. And I'll probably be one of the first in line. D:D
BTW if you're wondering why this stuff is taking so long, when I was there they had about 12 cars they were working on, and they get a lot of the "here's my car and 10,000-30,000 dollars" kind of jobs. So if there's any delay, it's cause the're so damn busy.:D
Originally posted by JimW Where is Pettit Racing located? I heard some very good things about them as well!
The're located in palm beach county. In the city of lake park, FL. About 15 minutes (or less depending on traffic) from my house. Take I-95 to Northlake Blvd. Northlake east to old dixie highway (you'll see a K-Mart, burger king, Hess station, and a Ford dealership at the intersection). Go north on old dixie about 1/4 mile. You'll see a tire kingdom on your right hand side. The're right there by the tire kingdom. Just look for all of the RX7's. You can't miss it.
I have known Cam at Pettit Racing for a long time. He was amazing with the third gen RX-7. I can only imagine what he will be doing with the RX-8. It will only be a mater of time before he builds a tripple rotor renisis RX-8 I am guessing.
How would a 3 rotor renesis be possible? I thought the side ports are what made a renesis a renesis. how can you have a 3 rotor with side ports?
I had to read your post twice to fully understand it, and then it dawned on me. If its side port you can't have rotors on both sides, you can't port to another rotor! End ports no problem, but side ports change everything. My best guess is to have a null chamber in between, which begs the question of instead of 3 rotors, why not go to 4? Mazda won the 95 Lemans with a 3 rotor and the New Jersey shop (don't remember their name) just auctioned off a 3-rotor on ebay for 73k, how did they build theirs?

Didn't take the thought that far along the lines of port implications and meeting the housings together. Taking that into thought, however, I would revert to some of my previous posts where I've expressed more of an interest in a 1.6 version of the 2 rotor or of something to that effect.
The thought of a 3 rotors gas mileage is bad enough, a 4 rotor would be horrendous, and may not fit in the 8's engine bay?
I would expect someone, if not Mazda, to at some point to create a center housing similar to what Rotarygod referred to above.
