I actually have a set of these on my FC. I didn't know what they were until now. It's just a daily, but I believe the previous owner was drifting it. I don't know what kind of improvements it has.

I have a set on my corolla and really like them. They improved brake feel a surprising amount. but I imagine rx7s are a good bit stiffer than my corolla was stock.

let us know how you like them.

Haven't tried them in an FC but on some cars they make a noticeable difference.

They usually do make a notable difference, at the expense of the driver in a front end collision. That is the front impact crumple area where the force of a front end impact is dissipated into the car instead of your internal organs. So, yes they made a difference in chassis stiffness and handling, but if you're in a front end impact much more of the force will be transmitted into you instead of the chassis. Your decision.
