RXRacing (http://www.rxracing.com)

I basically made mild steel shoes that the Rad fits in, top and bottom and then I bolt the front and back legs of the rad to the shoes.

We just bolted in a TKO 600 into the FD road race car and the initial feedback was pretty awesome. Stock RX-7 gearboxes blow 3rd gear above 400 rwhp. With the green brothers adapter everything went...
