i've been checking on here for a rolling chassis for about two weeks now, but i haven't found anything interesting. i might just end up with brandons supra.

cool i just spent all day getting it going it turned out to be the ignition control module the motor runs very smoothly

so the only problem now is that when you press down of the clutch pedal it extends the slave cylinder and doesnt pull it back in so now im thinking they didnt install the clutch and throw out bearing correctly but who knows im not even going to try to take that tranny out so ill probly end up taking it to a tranny shop

where you watching the fights at?

It is also friday fun night (first time, not sure what it all means) so yes I will most likely go again. I wanted to find out about some rules before I drove my 7 all the way up there just to be told I cant run. Not sure about my fuel pump location, and my 2 stroke reservoir leaks a bit, as well as my oil pan gasket. They are minor leaks, but wasnt sure how picky they get on stuff like that. I will have to track you down. I will PM you my cell number.

I dont have much of a basis to compare or anything but it seemed like there were a shitload of cars there. You should have gone, it was a good time. My GF Angie and I were there from 7ish to about 3:15. I took a camcorder but didnt record anything as I was too busy watching all the nice cars.

Can someone get me the phone number of that dyno place down the road? I need some carb fine tuning done and this seems to be the most cost effective/time effective way to do it.

We should have a cruise sometime. Let me know and hopefully I can get the time off. Sundays are best for me if on the weekend.

Oil on the battery is bad.... Just wanted to throw that out there lol.

hmm.... oil goes in the engine not on it like most rx7 owners tend to believe

I'll be interested also as my car is now getting close to back on the road (engine running).

Only IC, exhaust, and foot work to do.
