But that's murder... plus, you'll probably kill the thief in the process.
That is the idea. Beware, RX-7 thiefs get blown up.

I guess another idea would be install some gas that would knock him out and then have GPS to call the cops to arrest him.

woot woot i like the idea of that... besides how many times does it actually have to happen before thieves think twice before stealling a RX7, is the car worth blowing up for? i mean i could see maybe a limb loss for an RX7 but thats about it... ::hardcore::

long and the short of it, i believe having a fuel cut switch and keeping your face shut about it and its location is the best bet, i loved being the only one knowing the "trick" to starting my car, all others just "arent qualified to operate my RX7 and the car knows it" =D

worth looking. i have one of these in my car that i bought long time ago. I use it to lock my gas pedal whenever i have to park at a shady neighborhood. I do have alarm on my car, but imo, alarm are only good for unlocking doors ....
I had one of these on my civic....when it was stolen.....when it was found the autolock was no where to be found, and the pedal was still intact, so there are easy ways around it apparently.

You've tried lowering the rev limit to 500 rpm and trying to start the car? Mine won't start.....needle climbs up to 500, then back down to 0.

There was a recent article in Modified magazine about the Blackline GPS snitch, which looked promising.

FWIW, i just ordered a NRG quick release adapter with short hub and steering wheel, and im looking into a steering quick lock for the release adaptor and a battery kill switch. I have a Viper 2way alarm (791VX) and Lo/Jack, as well.

even with all this, i still dont think its enough. its not that i live in a bad neighborhood or park in bad areas; i just never want to wake up or walk outside to find that my pride and joy has been boosted.





(knock on wood- just in case.)

Screw that, I'll just hire the DC snipers to follow me around to watch the car, no other anti-theft device needed!

I have a Wireless IP Camera that sends Video to an FTP site, when it detects movement, in my Driveway / Garage so if it's gone I have evidence...

http://www.trendnet.com/products/TV-IP100W.htm



Which works great for home Paranoia, and they have some of those "Race Cam's" maybe there's a way to re-program them to only record when they see movement, and then send it via FTP to your home PC ? If you want to go real crazy

I'd say Lo-Jack is another great tool as it covers your $500 deductible if they can't recover the car within 24 Hrs. of being stolen... Which covers you should they find the lo-jack before you notice it's gone...

The stock alarm is in CPU #2, which contains a bunch of other components so is unlikely to have been removed. If your car starts without pressing the clutch it is likely that the clutch switch was jumped. I would not worry about it. The stock alarm is pretty much pointless too, so I would not worry about that either.

Oh - just noticed the RHD thing: I think the clutch interlock thing is purely a USDM inanity so the behaviour is probably stock on your car.
