    Thread: Project L33T: 1981 Mazda RX-7 FB

    Nah I was in the RX-2 this year (again). Was only there from about 8am to 2pm on the Saturday, saw what I wanted to see then got bored and left. Not really a fun event in an original car, I probably...

    Thread: Did reddit kill GPforums?

    The concept of Reddit is just as broken as Facebook, in that ultimately whatever the owners and advertisers allow is what gets debated, and the success of a post is determined by clicks which in turn...

    Thread: What did you do to your car today?

    Haha yeah, it's actually quieter than my stock RX-2. Helps to have a massive turbo blocking the exhaust and three huge stainless mufflers. And thanks, good to be back in NZ _b

    343HP @7200rpm, 10.4psi boost. Bit more work to do on the cooling, then will turn up the boost to a more respectable level... :D

    Thread: "A" and "B" in rotary, what does it mean?

    Thanks for the epic bump - saw this post while I was up a hill today, pic attached. Checked the engine and you're right, it's a 12A. Couldn't have done it without you.

    Thread: Car ownership in UK

    Every workshop here in Ontario has an oxygen/acetylene kit on the floor. Everything under the car more than a few years old gets cut off and replaced.

    Thread: rotaries

    That's really not the case. I have a 13B engine in my rx7 that should manage 500rwhp for the better part of 200,000 km. They are reliable engines when treated correctly. But I guess even in 2018 us...

    If you're having that much trouble after soaking it, probably best to tear it down. Chances are it'll need new seals anyway. 12A stuff is getting really hard to come by now, so if the housings have...

    Thread: rotaries

    Pretty rare for a factory 12a to sieze while running unless it's been neglected, and you'd have fair warning even then. Most likely fuel or ignition related. If you can't bar it over after soaking it...
