each rotor is only 600cc I thought?

True, but for some reason I always read they were classed as a 2.6, or maybe that's the RX7 and they double it to take the turbos into account, I forget :confused:

*edit* found some stuff on it:

Renasis is 1.3 (2x 653 cc rotors).

"Cant realy be compared to a 1.3 cylinder engine though. It Breaths as a 2.6 petrol. Each rotor has 3 combustion chambers and fires once each rev instead of once /2 rev."

and

"It's a two stroke engine, thus each cylinder does a 'power stoke' (as it were) twice for every single time a cylinder would in a four stroke. Therefore in comparitive terms, the engines capacity could be considered in the real world as a 2.6 4-STROKE!!
This is officially classed as a 1.3 2-STROKE, and thus gets taxed as such."

So guess it's down to the way the engine works rather than physical size, but yeah I got it wrong and they are two 600 and a bit cc rotors :)

Nice to see you all even though I still don't know who half of you are :D

On the way back I was following Conanius and Fakesnake and cruised past them as they eased off. By the time I realised why they had eased off I was about 100m from the white lines doing a ton, at least I know my brakes work :p

Looking forward to the next meet!

I need to offer my apologies - I was all set for a quiet weekend, and a blast across the moors....when the house I'm moving into in July fell through, and I had to go and see another one at short notice...

Ended up spending Friday/Saturday driving from Exeter to Marlborough, then to Bath, then to Portsmouth, then to Marlborough, then back to Bath via Bristol...

Think we got a house sorted out now, looks really nice, but was a shame to pull out, especially without being able to give advance warning, sorry guys!
