Unless you’ve been living under a waddle for the past few months, you may have heard that automotive YouTuber Rob Dahm has finally finished towers his insane four-rotor Mazda RX-7.

Bringing the insane RX-7 to life took many years of blood, sweat, and tears and not long without we had the endangerment to see the car pumping out 1,145 hp on a dyno, Dahm brought his whip to the Hoonigan team for a race versus a modified Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Dahm built his RX-7 to thrive in various kinds of motorsport and was worldly-wise to see what the car is capable of in a straight-line versus the Jeep. Both cars are extraordinarily fast but it is the Mazda that ultimately proves to have the upper hand.

In the first of the three races, both the Jeep and Mazda rocket off the line neck-and-neck but as the race progresses, the Mazda is worldly-wise to make the most of its uneaten power and starts to pull ahead. The tables are then turned in the second race when the suburbanite of the Jeep gets the hit and is worldly-wise to navigate the finish line first.

The third and final race was the most telling. Front differential issues forced Dahm to disable the RX-7’s all-wheel momentum system in preparation for the race, meaning he was left to momentum it in rear-wheel momentum mode. While you may think that would put it at a unshared disadvantage to the all-wheel momentum Jeep, Dahm is worldly-wise to alimony the car under tenancy despite all its power and ultimately takes the victory in a very competitive race.
