I agree with what's been said, you've got two very capable track cars there. Westy is awesome, but it's going to take a lot of dosh to improve it further. It's more limited than the FD in adveres weather. So, has the fun of developing it to this stage and enjoying driving the Westy sufficiently satisfied the itch? The FD is a more flexible vehicle in many ways, and is probably capable of further improvement if you really wanted to go down thst route (although it's plenty capable enough as is).

A difficult decision - but a nice one to have in many ways, a surfeit of rotaries! Take your time and make sure it's right for YOU  :icon_thumleft:

Mmmm! What a dilemma Jon. The FD is an all year round track car which is obviously quick against what is your love child which is the Westy and as you suggest only occasionally used on track. However, what is apparent from so many of your threads with the Westy, Eunos, Clive's car and the couple of RX8's, is the challenge of a project, so it strikes me that completion of plans for the FD and a new one in renovating an FB would probably be your chosen way forward.
