That problem was solved 20 years ago, where have you been?
My Rx7 is twenty years old and the engine is perfect, besides replacing the Apex seal and other rings and seals is a one day job including removing and puting back the engine in its bay. I rebuilt a friend's rotary engine in my garage in under four hours for a total of $300 in parts.

I have heard its a problem with Turbo RX7s when the boost has been turned up but the Ceramic apex seals take care of that, also many other non-rotary people continue to talk about it. My original statement was intended to be sarcastic.

Ha ha, I like the question posted... "does it have a flux capacitor or similar" Maybe it runs on bananna peels and beer cans too ala "mr.fusion"

It is an interesting machine. Doesn't seem too efficient though, and from the videos I have seen, it is noisy as hell.

I feel kind of bad for the guy, I can't imagine any of those bidders would be serious.
