So, what kind of speed are you looking for going down the Mulsanne straight? 220? 230?

Done....I read this entire thread in 1 day. I think I deserve a reward or something, but I guess the entertainment value of the thread was reward enough! Excellent job, read every post, looked at every pic, and watched every video.

Been debating getting another brap machine and going with a turbo 4 rotor, so this thread has been an excellent eye opener, to read through the trials and tribulations, and the rewards that come from such meticulous and passionate work. I was wanting to do a RHD version, but I don't see how that would be possible....may have to rethink my strategy. Anyways, just wanted to drop a line and thank you for keeping this post alive and interesting to walk through over 2 years of dedication to the arts! My hat is off to you, your friends, and the team working behind you to make your dream a reality!

I specifically dedicate this to a specific local who said I would never be able to do a quality paint job without professional tools and experience, that I would never get anywhere real with achieving goals in rotary community without him specifically, and that mocked my failures and set-backs and called me a con-artist publicly. To you my friend, here's my running 4 rotor rx7, surrounded by my real friends, painted outside, rebuilt a 2nd time in under 2 years, enjoy your words.

Thank you to all of you that do support the effort, and thank you to my close friends for your help and those who have performed services in this rebuild. JD Durham from Krowrx, and Brandon Davis for detailing the paint.

Awesome!!!!!!!! Funny what haters can push you to do! Great work and congratulations on achieving your vision. I'm pumped for the dyno pulls and random videos of wide eyed people in your passenger seat LOL.

You did it.
You did it right.
You did it your way.

I can't wait for passenger impression videos!
Probably going to blow out my ears or my Sony Bass Boost headphones, but I will never turn your videos volume down.

If one word describes Zach's car for me, it's "outrageous". I don't think there's anything even remotely like it. There are other 4 rotor powered cars, but none are as complete and thorough and thought out as Zach's. None are finished like this. Can't wait for how it performs and more of those driving videos.
