A few of my 2010 AutoX Pics

These are all from different events for the most part, but all in 2010. This year was a lot of fun, hopefully I can step it up a notch next year. Ended up winning Cincy Region XP class again this year. Two years in a row.







Pretty sure there is some air under the inside front on this one.




Just missed a pretty extravagant smoky spin, lol.

Already looking forward to 2011. Made a few suspension changes, can't wait to get it out there.

those are some great shots.

what tire sizes are you running up front? 275s? the car looks like it sticks pretty hard and very little roll while doing it.

The front wheels are 18x9.5 +45.
The rear wheels are a custom job, I took a 18x10 +38, and welded in a 3/4" wide strip so now they're 18x10.75 +whateverThatComesOutTo.

Now, making them fit.
Full version: https://www.rx7club.com/suspension-wheels-tires-brakes-20/fitting-315s-stock-body-fd-904367/

Abridged version:
- Rolled the lips flat
- Air hammered with a slightly rounded flat tappet piece, the metal upper liner, right near where it meets up with the fender lip. Since the tire is so close to the outside of the fender, and the metal inner fender rolled inward, the tire would hit that far before the rest of the tire would contact the metal liner. So in attempt to keep the shoulder of the tire off that location, I air hammered that area to stretch it, and raise it up and out of hte way. That was fairly successful. I gained ~1/4" more room in that area.


For fitting it on the inside:
- Moved lower shock mount inboard by ~0.75".
- Full offset control arms
- More hammering of the metal body on the forward, inner part of the metal. Looking at the drivers side, it would be on the body where the wheel would be at 9:00 oclock.

Agreed. At first I was like whoa, there is some squat in the corners then I realized their 18's so it looks about right for planting the power and balance.

What is the very small cooler in front of the IC for? Also, what is the "furry" looking thing under the car by the diff?
The car looks mean with those wheels/tires! Nice job getting them to fit.

I don't have an intercooler. My car is N/A, so the coolers you are seeing are:

1. Small powersteering cooler
2. Oil cooler
3. Radiator

The furry thing is header wrap that got torn up from going over a speed bump and damn near high centering the car on it. Haven't taken the time to re-wrap that part. I'd like to have it ceramic coated at some point so I can ditch the wrap.
