See Thru Rotary Engine in Slow Motion - (Wankel Engine) 4K

86 893 ืฆืคื™ื•ืช 9 ืžื™ืœื™ื•ืŸ

I Run a See-through Rotary (Wankel) engine and Film it in Slow Motion so we can see how the combustion process works, aka Wankel Rotary engine.
here you can also see what is inside of a rotary engine (Wankel), while it's running in full view to see just visually witness how a combustion process differs from the piston engine counterpart.
First ever See Through Rotary Engine Series on ILhistory or anywhere in the world.
Have you ever wondered how a Wankel engine works differently from a conventional piston engine then you're watching The Right video, because with my see-through angle engine you can see inside the combustion chamber as the engine is running while I film it with high speed cameras to show you how the Wankel combustion process works.
This is the first episode of the see-through rotary engine series and the second season of The see-through engine series.
So make sure to go to the playlist tag and check out the entire series of see-through Engine videos, the second season starts soon.

    1:44 There is some controversy over how you count the capacity of a Wankel Rotary. Some feel you should double Mazdaโ€™s capacity rating. So thatโ€™s not a 1.3 litre, itโ€™s more like a 2.6 litre.

      Actually Felix Wankel developed the idea intially as a supercharger for a 50cc reciprocating motorcycle. The little Graupner 49PI engine in this video is not Wankel's engine... the KKM engine was designed by Hanns Paschke and Walter Freode without knowledge or assistance from Felix Wankel. Wankel hated the KKM engine.
