Hehe yeah I like to think that Supra's, RX-7's, MR2's etc are generally the least ricey imports out there, as they were built to be true performers.

I don't think you can really say one car is better then the other, it all depends on the application.

I guess this just started because Nashman is going against everything that's ever been said about RX-7's. RX-7's are known for their excellent handling, supra's are known for there highway killing. I just don't understand how these could be questioned. Review after review (both amature and proffesional drivers) seem to say the same things.

Woohoo, I'm a post whore today. That's what happens when you get a day off.

Anyways, back to the topic of RX-7's!

What can I do to shave some more weight off my ride without spending gobs of cash? Oh and before you suggest it, I love my PS, so don't even think about it!

I need more power, gotta get that race pipe! I was shocked when that 626 kept up with me. It's a 2 door LX turbo, pretty much stock. Punched cat, K&N filter and running a little extra boost. We're both new standard drivers, I've got a little more experience though. Oh well, he's mine on the high way.

welli may ahve come on strong but no has given any thing good about supra i gave good hoots ot the rx7 i like em but i just don't like the turbos

i whould die to ahve gregs car as long as my supra


each car has it own drive ablity

rex good some places suck in others supra's are good in some places and bad in others


and weight will pull more g's as long as the setion is made for the car wiht of car will give it more g's

teh supra is great race car but i whould rather take the rex to the auto x caues of sharp coners


i never hack or said they where bere in any casues but all in the end if you taly all the points up there just about the same

there was like some mag that test both and said that very thing


if i was ot choose i whould choose the rex for auto x and the supra for raceing on track

and that what that guy said but it is his own 2 cents




now on to the 6262 come on greg you can't let thart famly car get you upgrade do some thig whiht your gearing it so long i find why they did it i do not know but i have bean playing around whiht gears and i can get you car to go bit faster

Didn't all RX-7's come with the same gear ratio except for the Gtu?

How can I get a tighter gear ratio? I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of top end.

Super charge or streetport some day. if my engine blows, I'd most likely get a street port.

I bought a N/A knowing they weren't super fast. I'm happy with it. I just really prefer the feel of an N/A.

u can buy 4.30 gears out of a GTU.. that will help a lot.. ditch the AC , PS = it is so easy unless your a 80pound pussy women.. so easy!!.. ditch airpump and get exahaust.. the stock myfflers weight 50 pounds each.. remove heat shields u dont need.. remove a couple tow hooks on the back they are 20 pounds each.. shit like that!!

It might be harder than you think to get Nashman to do this because I don't think any of us what to do jail time for murder(even though we've all thought about it).

Tyler, maybe you might want to pick another CART driver that's still alive.

the 88/89-92 Mazda 626 LX/GT sedan/MX-6 GT coupe and the Ford Probe GT all use a 2.2L turbocharged inline 4 with 145hp and 190 lb/ft. they can be very easily upgraded to put out some pretty good power. mmmturbo.
don't worry Greg, my friend in his 300ZX TT was surprised by one a few years back.

that i know of is the 626 has 120 hp and 150 turq plus he is pushign more boost the stock i think cause has screw i find them bad for turbos well at lest for my car but other i ahve no clue


and what i ment by i don't care for the gears is there to bloody long shorten em bit and use 5 th may free some turq up that how honda's do it


the type s rsx is 6 speed and the reg vertion has 5 speed

and power diff between the cars are not that much


4.30 whould do alot free up lost turq but your zero to 60 time will drop but the 1/4 mile will be the same



i have 4.30 in my car and walk away from most supra's when i at lower boost as well just caue sof my gearing but there bad point soon as i hit around 140 bang there that other supra right now my tail and most likly even whiht me caues his small ass gears got em there
