Yeah my XXX-NT can whoop that thing. And my XXX-NT barely runs. Cool concept though, mabey that will put an end to a $30 gallon of nitro!

Sadly, I actually like my loud, abnoxious, inefficient, clumsy, overly polluting nitro mill!

Mazda have been working on the technology for ages, hydrogen and the rotary engine are actually the perfect pair. When I did a research project on alternative fuels back in High school, hydrogen was not viable in a piston engine. Seems BMW have done thier homework and now it is

I can see it now. One car T bones another at the end of the straight, and a big fireball rises above the track.

It says it can run at 80 km/h thays close to 50 mp/h but 25 min. on equivilent to 300 metric liters of fuel is poor milage. Nice first attempt, but i'd like to see fuel cell technology come to rc as well.
