Rx7 Holds Unlimited Rwd Record At Buttonwillow

Just to let everyone know Twins Turbo RX7 driven by Jack Mardikian ran a 1.48.3 and came in second overall only to be beaten by the HKS carbon EVO. This was at the super street time attack finals. Here are a few pic's. Eric from Twins Turbo will fill in the details for everyone later.

Yes, I've seen this FD at a lot of NASA events this year. When it's up and running well it's really fast. Nice crew too.

Sick lap. Loved that catch at the crest of the hill when the car went airborne.

How much does the car weigh? Are you really using Tokicos? The car looks quick even if starts looking a little unstuck later in the lap (are those A compound Hoosiers)?

Nicely done. For a second there I thought it was an updated rotaryracing and reliablility car...well maybe it is Just saw Jack was driving it.

Any comments on how well the chassis is compared to other cars your raced in similar configurations?

Def not an updated RRR car..we took her down to the white meat. we started with a block. every nut and bolt, weld, wire, custom coolers, plumbing, fabricate everything, dyno ect..everything is Twins Turbo now. Not that i'm proud of her, LOL..
we have some pictures of the build on our site www.twinsturbo.com in the project car section.
