General Technical / Won\'t start... flooded?
« on: November 29, 2011, 12:11:21 PM »
If its badly flooded the easiest and most time efficent way of clearing it is for someone to tow you for a while with ignition on and in 2nd gear plus.

the gearbox is in the front. not sure why there is 2 shafts (i think one engages and disengages the front wheel drive but im just guessing)

rb engine and gearbox weight is pretty heavy must be if i remember what i was told 250kgs + full dressed. whats an rx about 130 to 150kgs. theres 2 shafts to the rear. the rear diff i assume is heavier also. i dont know too much about it because it hasnt broke down. ill get some measurements.

General Technical / HELP! Engine problem maybe i need a new engine :(
« on: November 21, 2011, 11:02:31 PM »
Also its not unusual for turboed rotaries engines to go at ANY mileage. Id consider 35k on one engine fantastic as ive never had more than 5k out of mine. Consoltaion is you can do a CHEAP REBUILD YOURSELF WHICH IS VERY SATISFYING AND WILL COST YOU ABOUT 600 TO 1000 EUROS. SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS

sounds like a chipped tip. still giving compression but ticking against the housing as it spins. when it fully lets go it will be like a tractor. get a real compression test. the 1st housing was weaker in the vids

yeah grant your right on that.
 
aside from the pwer and weight ratio. the fd would probably benefit with a..
lower COG,
shorter wheelbase,
better aero,
better weight distribution
 
this is all cloud talk btw id only attempt to do it if i retired came into some real money and my girlfriend did a dusty roads on me.

V8 beats RB any day.

not with the atessa system surely.
 
i love the fact i can lay a full 520 plus hp down at the lights on a soaking wet road and get ZERO wheelspin. its hard to get your head around. then as car realises it doesnt need power to the front  the bias moves right back to the rear of the car with near no tourqe to the front wheels. im thinking about this more for the atessa than the rb block. i have the Nur N1 block in my r33 and i have to say i find it phenominal for it only running 520bhp which is pretty conservative and should at 1.4 bar run forever (much more forever than any of my fd blocks should have run anyway (just what i need) . i have full boost low in the rpm all the way to 8000 rpm. I do howver have to put up with the extra weight. i think that extra 300-400kgs really slows the car down past 110 mph the fd would climb quicker here. the only solution to that is 2 slightly bigger turbos and 1.8 bar = 700+hp
 
that in a track prep fd shell would be the drive of your life.
 
lets see off the top o my head
 
fd track prep car shell with blown lump
=10k
700hp skyline with damge (or similar)
=10k
splice em together
=15~20K tops maybe less, doing work yourself
 
35k to 40k maybe less
 
what around a track would beat that for that money with a roof for under 200k (atoms and alike aside) providing you can keep the weight low. near stock fd.

Anything Engine/Performance/Tuning related / is this turbo fracked?
« on: November 21, 2011, 04:58:31 PM »
i think you can balance a turbo by shaving off any part of the heavier side.

How would one go about this?
the target would be 600 hp on twins with a total weight under 1300 kgs.
I have a skyline now and im thinking the fd would be awesome with the atessa 4wd system.
 
ill also ask in the skyline owners too.
 
has this been done before?

3rd generation RX-7's / What power would i be getting?
« on: November 15, 2011, 10:29:29 PM »
324.3 at the fly at .8 bar but your maxing out the standard fuel system. so you need an uprated fuel system and then another mapping session. may as well do it the expensive way.

watch for the "slight" gear box oil leak when you pull the prop shaft out of the g box
