The Redbull RX-8 is a four-rotor as well. Not sure about the Nexen car.

Good pictures. The 8's were well represented this year, but did not compete all that well. Hopefully next year we can get some in the top 8 or even higher!!!

Add 20% to the price for the current exchange rate. $80k USD for a motor? There are a few cars I'd buy before dropping that much cash on an engine

that turbo is nice but on a renesis you would blow it sky high trying to push the power that that 20b and the quad rotor are pushing. the redbull quad rotor is the same setup as mad mike and he is pushing 666 wheel at 11psi, and joon maeng has a 20b pushing 600 wheel at 13psi. and as far as kyle mohans rx i would imagine it is similar to maengs. either way it would be nice to have either setup! i am thinking of going 20b when my car is paid off
