Can ANYONE beat @RobDahm!? His 100% custom 4 rotor engine beat the Hoonicorn and he’s been wrenching hard ever since! Omar’s “work truck” slapped a Whipple supercharger on the Coyote block to move some thick Hoosier slicks and make those Magnaflow pipes sing, but will it be enough??

Ik these have all been filmed in advance, but bring back the staff interviews in the next shoot. The best part of this show was watching the boys talk about the cars and mess with the guests

Gotta ride that bleeding edge. As someone doing a 99 cent store version of this, being a designer, engineer, builder, (occasional) fabricator, tuner, AND driver is unbelievably difficult. Dahm will always have my respect for risking it all for the biscuit

Seemed like more of a tuning issue, not necessarily broken.

@@Ontheregz ja, getting all that stuff ironed out is tricky. Idk how you 2step on a rotary, but on traditional motors you do heavy ignition timing retard to help get that turbo hot

The car didn't really break, that was just the launch control freaking out, a roll race could've been interesting.

I feel right now it's more of an it wasn't quite ready thing, like he did one drag race in advance and now instantly went to 4 rotor vs the world, i wouldn't mind if he took a bit more time to really dial everything in, but this is rob and he always got shit to do so dialing his car in probably just doesn't really fit in the schedule yet

@rrt5000 Year ago
Rob breaking his car reminds me of the stories my dad would tell me about his 22 years of drag racing. He broke most of the time his first 5-10 years. Then, once he figured out the problems, he learned to make what he had work, then he started to win most of the time.
@TrompKramer Year ago
If nothing breaks you learn nothing as a builder. Dahm is the ultimate builder, he wants to do everything himself and learn as he goes. And doing all that with a 4rotor that isn't the easy road to take. All other builders have tons of forums and manufacturers that do all the engineering for them. They are just really bolt on boys on steroids. Rob is the ultimate dream builder/tuner.
@rrt5000 Year ago
@TrompKramer I agree. That's why I say he reminds me of my dad. My father built his own four link back in the 70s before you could just go buy one. Built his own engines and tuned them before you could just go online or go to a dyno shop and find out the best tune easily. He did his own fabricating. Watching his videos makes me miss my father. Dahm is doing a hell of a job. I love watching his journey

There's something about this series that feels a bit better than Hoonicorn vs. The World. The Hoonicorn felt like it was always ready to race, with no problems arising most of the time. With the 4 rotor however we get to see just how many things can (and will) go wrong, along with how much time it takes dialing in a car of that caliber
@jttech44 Year ago
Well that and they rarely put the hoonicorn up against anything competitive whereas with this, alot of things could plausibly beat the 4rotor

@zakshah3480 Year ago
Yeah, the Hoonicorn was only really challenged by other no-prep racers like that R35 GTR that beat Lia. They've had full on drag race cars on no-prep surfaces, and surprise surprise, they didn't do as good. Plus, the Hoonicorn has the R&D behind it that comes with millions of dollars. Rob has....himself
Any time you could giggle at a rotary owner for their over confidence and excuses for loosing afterwards is priceless
