The Wildest RX-7 Build Ever? Visiting Rob Dahm's Rotary Palace



800 484 Views340

    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. Hoonigan

        How do you make that with your hand?

      2. Anime_God Minecraft

        nah the universal sign for rotaries is the mazda logo.

      3. Mac J

        @Richard Herring more like the illumarito. Also--- the illumarito (aka the world's first glow-in-the-dark burrito) would be an awesome food truck item at music festivals. Who wants to go 50/50 with me onan illumarito dorito-powered food truck? Hey, Rob!

      4. Richard Herring

        HertLife doritonati then?

      Looks like he made it out of Area 51, this must be Top Secret stuff right ?

    4. Sadist Fish

      Rob my rotary hero

    5. lachlan westrupp

      Good luck getting any reasonable amount of air through those air intake runners with the 120 deg short radius bend in them

      Hi Hoonigan ! Hey people! My dream is a motorcycle. My name is Dmitry, I am 25 years old, and all my life I have been fond of motorcycle topics. But at this time, I can not afford to realize my dream because of a lack of money. And I decided to try my luck by writing here, maybe someone can make one dream come true for one person and stay in my memory and in the memory of my environment for life! Motorcycle - Honda XR650. For me, this purchase needs to be saved for a long time, for someone it is quite feasible. I really hope that I will find such a person, because we live once and I would like to be part of such a story, if it happens.

      This some carhead shit frfr.. 2000hp yo?.. that's what happens when u get used to 800hp, then 1000hp. Ya tolerance keep going up 🤣 next thing you know u go broke af tryna build a rocket.

    13. Huss A

      Lame, cringy video. Click bait

    14. nsrracing1

      Go figure the same issues they had over 50 years ago are still going on now

    15. Bear 23

    16. King Ave Garage

      @5:24 headlight disrespect

    17. josh howells

      What kind of d bag wants to stretch out a nice pair of shades with his fat head.

    18. Richard Herring

      Spamming at this point but someone needs to hook up #hertlife with a 4rotor, it would be sick seeing him ripping a car that sounds like a 787B.

    19. Richard Herring

      Watching for the hit markers, that shit killed me. Btw seemed like y’all had a good time talking bout Dahms shaft.

    20. Jackson

      The small amount of time this car has spent actually running over like the last 5 years let's you know why no one builds these things

    21. boats solo

      Hahahahaha papa Hert

    22. DoubleM

      2000 horsepower and about.. 3 torques. All jokes aside this is a sick build can't wait to see it put together and ripping it up.

    23. Kj Stewart

      What the fuck I didn’t know Dahm was on the bachelorette hahahah

      1. Hoonigan

        Yeah... This is real life.

    24. Noah Grant

      who has the other 4 rotor???

    25. Jermaine Lee

      Wild shit

    26. Theninety

      I like this guys style. Now i need to find him so i can build an anti gravity wheel prototype. I got the blueprints i just need somone to level with

    27. Dirty_Furgy 9

      What the hell was that thing 0:40 into the video. Lol was that some outdated Picture device?

    28. TSiSS350

      FYI, and I am probably the only one who cares or noticed, but the rotary NSU engine you pictured is not a rotary but a four cylinder inline air cooled one from a Prinz.

    29. Isaac Pittman

      Rob needs to let Ken drive it

    30. Old Bastard

      Time to LS swap it boys jk lol

      1. Old Bastard

        @Hoonigan lol haha

      2. Hoonigan

        You just gave Rob and Hert their worst nightmares.

    31. Ganganführer Schaich Manfred

      is Hert ok? he looks quite brittle..

    32. Woodz O

      Kiwis go hard all day

    33. Reflex Photography NZ

      Nice Z32 Rob

    34. Work Shop

    35. A Aye Ron

      I’ve been following this project, I can not wait to see the finished product! Incredible 🤦🏼‍♂️🏎🖤


      I live in New Zealand and I know some crazy rotary builders but John is a smart man when it comes to rotarys id say he’s definitely up there with nz rotary builders if not better than some of them

    37. Ethan Fortune

      That guy is extremely intelligent. 🤯🤘💪

    38. 4Door Boogie

      funny ur reaction hahahha trade you he said? hahaha

    39. Timothy Luker

      They changed the bell to an option of personalized or all for notifications... lucky I'm a rotary fan I switched it back to all!! Miss the videos back to watching now👍

    40. C P

      How long has he been building the 4rotor for?!?!

    41. mor3idscream

      I never believed in love at first sight, then I saw this rotor...

    42. Roberto Hernandez

      I’m ready to build another FD after watching these videos

      Dahm has a bunch of cool shit, but he's brutal to watch.

    55. Kane McIntyre

      Yeeeaaah boiii! New Zealand smashing Puertoricans at the rotary game 🤣🤙

      1. Kane McIntyre

        @Te Angawaru Matetaka 😆

      2. Te Angawaru Matetaka

        @Kane McIntyre lol crack up

      3. Kane McIntyre

        @Reflex Photography NZ Pssshhh, buzz kill! I didn't wanna hear FACTS! Leave me with the hope bro 😆

      4. Reflex Photography NZ

        We good, but we ain't that good. Their rotangas are faster than ours, their 13bs are going quicker and faster than Brent Curran's 4 rotor

    56. Nitous Infinitarius

      Rob your the man, dream chasing fool that I absolutely respect. You guys are all so bad to the bone, in a good respect. Keep it up guys.

    61. hanse81

      Let's see that 2000 hp dyno test when the car gets done in 2025...

      1. Stein Elgaaen

        2000hp, also optimistic

      2. TURST67 / Zäa

        2025 is a bit too optimistic I think.

    62. Vincent dimatteo

      I hope that motor gets put to good use honestly. Not just put in a drift car used to simply spin the wheels where he could do that with 600hp easy

      1. Ask to seduce Miss

        I swear Rob is like a rotary mad scientist

    63. Anonymus

      If you would build cars like the ones you have in Germany the Police would take your car away as soon as it touches the street.

      13:30 the song reminds me of a rotary idle

    68. Emily An

      when Hert said "Let's talk about this car" (the red fd) with the donut garage in the back, it brought up some good memories from the early days

    69. Adrianzx

      Doesn't even run but makes 2000hp?

    70. SwordQuilava

      Those fender mirrors on that FD.... dang. That looks cleaaannn

      1. Emily An

        great video, keep it up. cheers!
