RX-Wiki is a place for technical and historical information about the Wankel rotary engine and they machines they power.

The Wankel rotary engine is a type of internal combustion engine using an eccentric rotary design to convert pressure into rotating motion. The rotor, which creates the turning motion inside an epitrochoid shaped housing, is similar in shape to a Reuleaux triangle, except the sides have less curvature. Wankel rotary engines deliver three power pulses per revolution of the rotor using the Otto cycle. RX-Wiki aims to be the most comprehensive resource on the internet for rotary powered cars, trucks, motorcycles, aircraft, boats, snow mobiles, go karts, tractors, lawn mowers, and seatbelts. It is a place for technical specifications, troubleshooting/repair procedures, DIY upgrades, manuals/documentation, OEM and aftermarket parts identification, historical information, pop culture references, and more.
