    Some of you may remember Rob Dahm when he visited us here in the studio for Hertbreak - or you may know him as the man who's been working on one of the wildest RX-7 projects we've ever seen attempted. We're talking about all wheel drive, sequential, four-rotor turbo havin', 2000 horsepower pushing madness. Along with some other past, current, and future builds Rob is working on. Either way, we're always hyped to squad up and roll out to our buddy Rob's place to see what he's up to.

      That’s a Dorito hand signal, the universal sign for rotaries. I don’t even know what the Illuminati is so stop coming at me with that crap 😂

      1. donnie baker

        And please try to deal with mine voice to text this phone I'm using is so corrupted I can barely understand what I just sent you

        @Hoonigan I hate these comment boxes are there only a one-way line of communication tow lot of misunderstandings come out pretty quick and I have no idea how you're controlling engine wear has been too much bad about the wipers on these rotors so just for ship and giggles has anyone Everett youth two-cycle mix in the gas and the only one I would ever try is Yamaha Yama Lube two-cycle oil 50 to 1 I wish you could see what the inside of an engine looks like this been running on that stuff mechanic on a team one time we had a 125 to go to Loretta Lynn's with your bike has to be stock no mods at all we ran the yamalube and I was getting worried after a month of racing should I pull the engine down no deposit nothing not not even any traces all the engine parts look like you taking them out of the box there was only a hazy blue film on everything as the oil evaporate the other gas it doesn't burn it all of course we know this is not something you want to run around the street with constantly mixing oil whatever but it might be the cheaters dad's keep it under your hat the next time we're out on the track running the shit out of that thing one more thing 1979 I bought a brand new Elsinore with no sleeve in the cylinder instead it had about two thousands of an inch of chrome plating on it and we're all freaking out how long is this going to last you know the whole thing 7 years later I traded it for a Harley there was nowhere in the engine cylinder at all but religiously I clean the air filter every time I took it out. Now there's some kind of a new ceramic I don't know what it is plating they're using instead of Chrome on aluminum that's supposed to be much better first time I heard of it I thought of the Mazda engines with their modular rotors stack together criticize play if you want I'm going to do or say anything to get these engines back into production far as I'm concerned you guys are the Pioneers the leader of what we should be able to buy in production

        The Illuminati invented the rotary engine to get us addicted to triangles...It worked!

      4. michael jackson

        HertLife get a four rotor hert copy his as$

      5. Alex Sanchez

        HertLife but that’s what everyone in the Illuminati says...🤣

    2. Hogan Totorewa

      Yeah I'm nz rotary life hard grew up in the midst of it genius engine builders pulse performance

    3. James Sanders

      Rob, For Safety, you need to put static ground on the fuel barrels whenever transfering fuel. One little static spark and well ... you guess how it turns out. Love your channel and wish you the best. Be Safe, James

    4. Dylan Ernst

      he should put a rotary engine in the diablo.

    5. THE NICE ONES

      STIFFLER's back!!!!!

    7. Khyl Brekelmans

      An it didn’t even mate it to dyno before it fucked out

    8. G. Brai

      This is the first time I'm actually seeing him talk about it this way.god,what an insane amount of work in this car.he puts a new meaning to the phrase "built,not bought"

    9. Cliff P

      I am VERY! Disappointed in how Hert was talking to one of his friends over a set of “glasses” I HATE! When people talk to their “friends” like that. I really wonder where this “other” side of Hert comes from. It’s the most annoying DICKISH attitude! Yes I just made of dickish! He’s being dickish over his friend wearing the correct way!! His glasses!! Please Hert don’t let stuff like that get in to the editing!! It make you look sound and your most likely a PENIS! You know penis’s are way smaller than Dicks! As much stuff as Hert has broken because of his inability to change ever so slightly his driving to not keep on breaking things as he is so famous for. Let me give everyone a clue!! You don’t break that much stuff if you really really know what your doing!! Why can other rip every weekend but Hert!! Hers a lap! Now I like him! I would like to chat with him some and maybe see why? And adjust his driving but he’s a grown ass man and would never listen to someone on how to change anything. Old dog new tricks don’t work! Just keep peeing in the car there Hert.

    12. Алексей Пантюхин

      Все круто все грамотно, но турбину я бы поставил по больше)

    13. Jay 0711

      Rob was on The Bachelor? I will never look at him the same. You will always be a little less of a man after doing something as lame as The Bachelor.

    19. Explicit Stoner

      The best Mazda is Mad Mike's Mazda Rx-7(Radbull) Period. It's a monster drift car with a 4-ROTOR + huge GARRETT'S TWIN TURBO! and can be easily setup for a circuit track racing ready to attack the Apex with maximum speed and accuracy

    32. David Bern

      Looks home built 😒

    33. Julian Parra

      Watching this again cause damn

    34. demonic477

      585 cubic inch 9.6 liter rotary would have been huge . I'm talking big block drag engine huge 585 cubic inches is the kind of displacement that takes a full size car in to the 9 second in the 1/4 mile range. the rotary corvette would have beat every car out there at the time including the Hemi darts and the 427 mustangs that were on the streets at the time hands down and a staff change in the upper rank's of GM killed the project . they said it was economy but GM had fixed all the problems with the Apex seals and all the other gremlins in the engine and were ready for production. but the man heading the project died and a new boss came in killing it saying we have plenty of V8's to power the corvette .

    35. metalman timco

      I'd probably slap him for slapping my pop up bro. See if I could make onr of his eyes not open all they way too.

    36. Arlequin

      Robs a smart dude, used his 15 mins of fame and transformed his brand into something he's passionate about. Respect, he's living the dream.

    41. P S

      Does Rob have a US-new channel???

    42. takanara7

      Annoying rich guy. "I imagined it and now it exists." like he's the first person to ever build anything. It's not like he's doing his own machining or anything, just a little welding/plasma cutting on the body.

    51. jake welder

    68. Lipi19821

      take off the glassess..your face sucks... ....ooops your glasses just broke in half....

    69. Liten Fara

      Dear Rob! Maybe I missed an episode, but why is the turbo charger so far away from the engine? How cme so long pipes? Wouldn't the system react more spontaniously if the turbo was next like in a BMW turbo diesel?

    70. Roger Halt

      Been following Robs channel for soooo long. Legend. Can’t wait for this beast to be unleashed. As he said, he’s doing it right, which means time is not taken into consideration :) One question, when does a car stop being the car if left the factory as? For example, this is like a funny car, complete new car underneath but the shell of a regular car
