Question type: Car Customization

Howcome rotarys have such low torque but they supposedly have a longer stroke?

3 Answers

Wtf are you talking about? Stroke? Rotaries make low torque because they are low displacement engines.

no I mean low torque in relation to their hp. Not low torque in general.

205

because they go round and round and not up and down. Piston engines have more leverage.
