I've been toying mentally for years with finding a good way to do a rotary valve system. Interesting method they have settled on. Thanks for the pointers, Steve.

It's a neat idea because it eliminates all of the rpm limitation imposed by an engine using a standard poppet valve. The problem they've always had is the expansion rates of different materials causing the rotors to seize up and sealing the rotors to the chamber. A company in australia supposedly made a V10 version for F1 that was supposed to be more efficient and powerful but F1 changed the rules to ban it. If you read the article on yellow bullet it tells of how this is a father son project so I wish them all the best with it. But I don't think it'll amount to anything more then a conversation piece.

approach by the looks, concept brings more issues to the table than removes from same table
At some point in the brainstorming process, the team should look to evaluate and shelve the impractical ideas, I think they forgot to do that step.

I remember a long time ago reading about this type of set up and how difficult it was to get right but now i think it could be a lot easier to perfect with the advent of some help full tech improvements being modern ecu's variable valve timing and dfi direct fuel injection all now found on modern vehicles.If the rotary valve was to only handle air and cam phaseing and dfi was electronically controlled it would make it a hell of a lot easier,also trying to remember where i read about a camless engine running electronic activated valves with no springs and dfi ,no throttle body the ecu would vary the lift and duration of the valve to increase the rpms with the dfi squirting in the fuel might have been a tech thing from hyundi ill track it down if i can .
