yeea but why would u want an rx7 over a supra? i mean it might of seemed like i was making an arguement that rx7's r better, but that wasnt near what i was trying to say. id much rather have a supra over a rx7. they are a true luxury sports car. an rx7 is a cheap sportscar in my view. and yea the 1st gen rx7's r carburated if u go to the 79 model which is one of the reasons they r so bad on gas, but they do make awesome backfires :P

well the battle between rx7s and mk3s have and will go on for a long time.... 2 very different cars, it's not really worth comparing.

I did want, and still do in some ways, a 2nd gen rx7. I had a shot at buying an 88 with 90 original k's on it or else my supra. Both were at the same lot and the supra had 62 k miles on it. I still think of what that rex would have been like, but I'm also glad (sometimes lol) that I have my car. I think the main deciding factor was that it's twice as big and I can actually fit comfortably in it!

And as far as supra crap, my wheels will hopefully be going on before I move back down. Also ordered a brand new spec stage 3 clutch kit hopefully it will be here soon as well!
Just a few more little things to fix up and I think it'll be finished - except the engine of course.
I am seriously toying with the idea of selling though... but doubt I can get enough for it to justify it.

not this again...
here's a 510 for ya toby... http://www.rotaryshack.com/CustomPro.../Ammars510.asp

i think the FB on the home page of that site makes 730hp, but the chassis wouldnt handle it.

brakes look good, are those just stock rotors or what? why no slotted/drilled, etc?

powerslot were only $16 more each, but would have been a 3+ week wait, and since that is the parking brake wheels, i dont want it on jackstands for that long... besides, stock is fine for the rears at my power levels...

ya, brake balance is something like that. ive got new Axxis Metal Matrix pads all around, so the only thing left to do is braided brake lines, but ill do that after the car is running.
