Your Rising RPM photos are so much better than all the other photos LOL....

This is my personal camera. I honestly think it's the best camera in the world. With the X20 (next generation) out on the market, the X10 are really cheap now. They used to be $600.

Amazon.com: Fujifilm X10 12 MP EXR CMOS Digital Camera with f2.0-f2.8 4x Optical Zoom Lens and 2.8-Inch LCD: Camera & Photo Amazon.com: Fujifilm X10 12 MP EXR CMOS Digital Camera with f2.0-f2.8 4x Optical Zoom Lens and 2.8-Inch LCD: Camera & Photo

It's basically a high-end point and shoot. These are some random sample photos I took:







Now imagine the photos you can take for your baby FC.

Awesome cant wait to get it umm the neck I will recieve can it face straight towards the front of the car?! That would work best for my custom v mount set up?! Also how do you like my build so far?!

Small update!!! So had a few hours to spare so I went and worked on the fc!! Im modifing the rebar face plates with thicker stainless steel and will have a bolt on design tube re bar!!!. The plate is not welded on in the picture, just let it sit on the frame end to see how it fits, have to drill holes and weld nuts on the back before I can weld them on!!!!

Will hopefully post another update later on depending if I get some work done!!!

Thanks!

Aleight guys I got a bit bigger of an uodate today. So I finally put the fc on the rotisery with my best pal joe from function racing/sigmatimeattack!. Gezz guys let me tell you this.. the chassis rotisery works great but had to modify alot of the mounting points in order for it to work for my fc. I made the front frame plates which I had to cut and reweld the mounting brackets, extend them and such for it to sit flush and sturdy!! Once again thank you Andrew cassidy for lending me the rotisery. So I was working on the fc till 3am on friday right after work, went home slept till 6 630am and went back to finish so yesterday me and joe start installing the fc on this cool tool and thinking and re engineering the rotisery to fit my fc chassis so we started at 5 pm 530 and finished the whole thing at 135am... crazy night of fabbing and making it work so now its time for bed goodnignt rx7 club and enjoy the journey of my time attack build!

Will post some awesome pics below

Heyooh rx7club,

Got a small update for you fellow rotor heads!!.

So I started removing the under coat and jesus its a killer.. best way to do it is torch, flat metal scraper and wire wheel to clean it off after!!

Also I worked on my rear areo, I cut out the back part of the 1/4 to make it flat so the wheel turbulence can escape through a custom diffuser I will be making, I looked at it 10000x before I started cutting stuff off and to me its honestly the best thing I can think of to reduce rear wheel drag!!

Let me know what you guys think

I will buy some diebond this week so I can make a rear wheel well diffuser.


Thank you guys

Beat regards Pat burdon / 13bbackfire
