No ****?

The kill was his. Just posted it since there where videos.

He did run a [email protected] on ET Streets. I ran a 12.7 @ 119MPH on 225 Kuhmo MX's. Tire selection has changed.

Fast car around here, I raced a camm'd and tuned Evo that night. Something like 2-3 bus-lengths.

They need to be redone. Too much of a tilt.

It's a bit of a different ball game. It's an RX-7, yes. But not quite... you guys have to start learning to add something special about your cars.

A LS1 RX-7 against a Cobra isn't anything fancy. It's V8 vs V8. A rotary RX-7 vs a Cobra is a whole different story.

I would like to submit to the courts that you've tried to bring more views into this thread by excluding the fact that your RX-7, isn't quite what it is.

^^Should people now put rotary in the thread title so people know its rotary?? lol

LOL seriously, i dont know why everyone is bitching. Let people do whatever they want to their car.

Yes its sad that more and more rx7s are turning over but theres nothing we can do about it. Complaining and belittling the owner/car only makes us look like kids.

When people drop F20's in the AE86, do they say, "o its hardly an AE86, call it an AE862k". People swap engines to what they are satisfied with.

Why is it a different ball game?

It's still an RX-7. The collection of components make the car, not the engine. yes I removed the "unique" rotary, but I did to update my power plant in the spirit of hot rodding. Ironically most rotary guys in person that I meet or give a ride love my car and I receive compliments. I have nothing against the rotary also, I beleive I have more against certain owners.

Most would say I have added something special into my car .

Wasn't meant to impress you. I raced a very quick local car, it was recorded, and I posted. I like any car race between two cars. Maybe you should bring your rotary up here and compete a little, I'll record it, and post it here.

Wow. Honestly, I don't really care. My RX-7 is still an RX-7, still will be if you say so or not. I'm not trying to bring up views, I posted this on a few other forums too, I know I enjoy a good race, just thought others would too.

Techniqully speaking it is not a rx7 anymore. Even though I don't mind v8 conversions (when done right).

According to Moray Callum of Mazda, RX officially stands for Rotary Sports, and always has.

rotors or pistons... Your **** still stinks.


Who gives a **** what engine goes in a 7. People who hate on pistons are just as bad as people who hate on rotors.

****, the only problem i have with his car is his fugly *** tilted gauge cluster, but he allready addressed that.

Ironically I had someone help with that part. They did a bunch of them on old rods and I thought they knew what they where doing.

Boy I was wrong!

I personally prefer rotary, but 400whp in an RX7 regardless of what motor is respectable.

Nice runs
