I know a guy with a 2 stroke one out of an old sled, but they are gutless and noisy no real point to using one of those types of rotary...and really old, read no parts for them I'd guess. I found a really cool one they run in gokarts that makes the power, but very expensive.

No such thing as a 2-stroke rotary.

Default Re: Has anyone done a rotary engine in a cart?

I recently bought a 1980 ish ezgo gas golf cart. As far as a 2 stroke rotary, well Arctic cat had 2 different rotarys. A 303 and a 295. The 295 made more horsepower. Evinrude/Johnson also had rotaries. a 35 HP and a 45 HP model.
I have a 35 HP model, and am planning on installing it in my cart. As far as noise, the Sachs engines in the Cats,were loud. But if using the Evinrude with its exhaust, its incredibly quiet.

No such thing as a two stroke rotary. Wankel is a 4 stroke cycle.
