Everyone Scared to run RX-7 last night

Last night i went to this streetracing made safe event

StreetRacingMadeSafe.com

and decided to see how my car stacked up against othercars... Decided to run low boost considering im still getting used to the car

1st up Was a Black 550hp Ford Lighting that i gave the Hit from 20.. & before i shifted to 3rd already had 3 cars ahead.


2nd was a little bit faster. A 650hp Blue SRT-4 with DR's in the front... Instantly pulled. But didnt want to go another run.

3rd was a 175shot 7-800hp Camaro... Spinning tires while going sideways & still put a car ahead... wanted to go another run but wanted to go for money.

4th was a 600hp civic which Perronrx7 drove while i filmed... Car bogged but still managed to pull away... No rematch

5th was a nitrous CLS63 amg (unknown power). Pulled ahead at the last min as he put his hazards on. Car bogged (to low rpm to boost) & gave him 3 cars and still passed him.

11pm hit and while i was sitting there waiting to run anyone for 5 min at the line. No one wanted to run against me (this blows). So I went home Undefeated!

will post vids later.

Awesome! A 700 whp Rotary is no joke though. You really were out of their league.

your saying you are at 120 mph in 2nd gear ?

I find that really HARD to belive due to our gearing....

Please educate me how that is possible. Thanks

in fact look at the video with the civic.... See how when the shift light comes on how the needle is in the 120clock position... The shift light comes on at 9krpm's... so a 9k my car is at 95mph.... If im wrong correct me

NOT hating. He had some GOOD runs and the car sounds nice.


But let's be honest. What FD have you ever heard of that can hit 120 mph in 2nd gear on STOCK tranny and rear end gearing ? The math isn't possible.


Must be a special tranny and rear. He must have magical pixie dust or something.

I'm HATING..... That is ******* hilarious....

Guess you haven't seen my FD .....

For one, its nicer than yours.... and secondly.... I DON'T have to rebuild EVERY year ...... I believe you have been thru 3 motors and I'm still on the same one..... and I'm sure you will blow yours again before years end...

Let me say this AGAIN since people can't seem to comprehend what is being said...

Your FD seems to run HARD and sounds NICE..... congrats !!

but the simple fact IS that the stock FD transmission gearing and rear end gearing are NOT setup to give you the speed you "CLAIM" you are achieving in 2nd gear.
If you look at any chart ever listed for the FD, 2nd gear can ONLY achieve a speed of 68 mph....so your telling us that your FD can MAJICALLY produce twice the engineered amount of speed our gear ratio has been designed for....


So again.... congrats...your car is finaly running GOOD..... Just STOP listing false info that isn't physically possible...

I'm DONE trying to educate you !!!!

Oh.... and by the way..... 120 on our speedometer is located at the 2 O'clock position of a clock NOT staright up.....ALSO..... Last shot of the speedometer on your video shows him at 80 mph.... PAUSE it at the 21 sec mark so you can see...

You should WATCH your own video...

Now 120mph at the top of 3rd gear is MUCH more believable....


P.S.... I think your TACH is off also..... shows he was at 4K and the car was barely moving (14 sec mark ).... You might want to get your gauges FIXED...

WOW.... come one man.....your speedo isn't calibrated and your making claims like this....

YOUR KILLING me Smalls....

You just PROVED my point..... There is NO WAY you hit 120 mph in 2nd gear...


Now that it's ALL cleared up, We need to get all our FD's to the track and do an invasion...and shut up all these V8 motors..
