Rotors are 12.7 in front and 11.9 in the rear.

Thanks Natey, but I should have been clearer is 6th in the manual a 0.70 overdrive top gear ratio? Must be a tall gear to help with CAFE I would think.

Thx so much! Must admit I stopped buying new car magazines regularly after the FD RX-7 was dropped. Kind of missed out on the RX-8 era, lol.
