    The RX-7--Mazdas front engine, rear wheel drive beast, is arguably one of the most iconic JDM sports car platforms of our time. From its wankel rotary roots, inspired by the Mazda Cosmo and RX-3, the FB, FC, and FD RX-7, have all shaken up the performance car world, and inspired automotive enthusiast circles globally. You can catch it on Forza, on motorsport reels of the past tearing up the IMSA circuit and 24 Hours of Lemans, racing down Mt. Tsukuba in Initial D--and you'll absolutely find the RX-7 racing through the Fast and Furious franchise. Join James Pumphrey as we trace the RX-7's roots, and answer the question--WHY did Mazda, stop making the RX-7?
    Check out our podcast, Past Gas, to learn more about the rotary engine:

There is this 50 year old dude who drives a lime green rx-8 in my town and he must have poured so much money into it. His engine is constantly banging and popping but going nowhere (my mate in his poverty spec e36 touring can go faster and that is not an exaggeration), so in my opinion, if you like rx-8, you are a douchebag just like him. But fd rx-7 is one of my most favourite cars ever ever.

@12:32. Im so glad you added the ,"UP TOOOOO SPEED" at the and of the ad break, because I was kinda worried I was watching "How to play Mahjong with Aunty Doris" for a while. So glad I'm still watching your fantastic content instead. (Breathes a sigh of relief in "its been a big week, and I have had too much to drink on Friday night ".)

@6:19 you totally missed the two most important models in the Mazda rotary story. The R100, and the RX-2. The Cosmo was very limited run compared to these models, and it seems almost criminal not to mention them. Bad 'Murican, Bad! You totally deserve a smacked bottom for such heinous omissions to the Mazda rotary story... And THEN, you ignore both the RX 4, AAAAAND THE RX-5. OK, I sort of get why you chose to ignore the RX-5. They were pretty chunky and weren't very fast. However, they did still have Dorito power.
