I have not been very active of late.. but I figured some of the memvbers might like to see what I have been applying what I have been learning from the board against.
THis is my 1984 RX-7. It was originally a Improved Touring class car.
Improved Touring means improving the safety.. and SOME items of the car.
Strip all the interior except for the dash and controls. carpet, rear seats, door panels (if you have door bars in your cage)
larger fuel lines
large fuilter and 140 gph fuel pump
exhaust.. unrestricted.. but must have a muffler and exit behind the driver
no emissions controls
race air cleaner
radiator and oil cooler are much larger
engine can be rebuilt to factory specs.. inclusing overbores if applicable within the factory specs.
Brakes..... Pads unrestricted. Must maintain factory calipers, spindles hubs etc.
shocks.. must maintain original strut, but can replace it with a factory replacement racing strut.. like Koni Penske etc.
springs unrestricted in original mounting location.
camber caster plates replace top strut perch
bushings unrestricted in original mounting location..
You get the point. Upgrading some of te things.. make it handle muuuuuch better.
Mine is transforming to something stronger...
I have removed the factory brakes and gone much larger. Also from 13" to 15" wheels.
I am in process of getting readyt to assemble a 600+ horsepower dry sump engine.. to replace the 120 is hp engine in it now....
This is over the weekend.. in NC for a Rotary Car Club event called Deals Gap Rotary Rally. Basically 11 miles of road with 318 turns. Picture space mountain at Disney.. in a car. No turn offs no side roads.. no houses nothing. It was an Apache indian trail in the past.. that they paved.
LOT of fun...
