1st generation RX-7's / Front control arms
« on: March 20, 2010, 08:30:39 AM »
hello,
 
do not heat anything,
 
all you do is use a hydraulic press, press out and clean, then press in
 
do not heat as it will be unsafe, its not the type of arm you heat

Old school Mazda's / looking for an rx3
« on: February 01, 2009, 04:10:31 PM »
howzit :)
 
to be honest value for money youd get a better car from aus, rust is a big problem in uk, hence why not that many old skool rotaries
 
if your into hp then an aus built rotor is way to go, because of the small market in uk for rotaries and japs, parts etc is very pricey
 
all the best with getting a car

no wories,
 
yeah it would pay to keep in touch with nz, as you can use the knowledge and experience from there to build some fast and powerful drag cars with all types of engines, 2/3/4 rotors etc
 
thats my mate nyle in the white toyota with the rear wheel drive corona, he had just built it before i left, was doing 10\'s when i left, now 8\'s im well impressed :)
he also works on the blue rx3 of tonys

I used to live in NZ (Where I got into rotaries)and would like to hear about the current scene back there.
Regards
Carl

hello,
 
since you asked :) bit off topic, sorry
i think youve missed the boat abit carl :), you should have been back in nz 5 years ago, it would have blowin your mind what rotor cars were about and what horsepower and setups they used in drag racing definately but also circuit racing,
even street cars, there were alot of 11/12 second daily drivers rotors and pistons about nevermind racing cars
i remember seeing mazda/ford vans towing rx2/3 etc but the van even had a rotary engine :)
it was an industry in its self
but now you wouldnt believe what there doing and the amount of cars that are modified, and how they are modified
 
i would define look up you tube
just a couple :)

Anything Engine/Performance/Tuning related / engine transplant

hello,
 
13BT engine into a first gen is relatively simple, the engines i use for the conversion are series 4/5 (FC) or the cosmo 13BTT engines,
i can use the series 5 turbos in the conversion and an easy 300hp is achievable
you do have to upgrade the fuel cooling systems etc to have the best result
 
and rotaries are very reliable as long as setup correctly, any engine with a system not working correctly will blow up and be unreliable
dont read and accept alot of internet threads to be the truth, ring and talk to the correct people ie a rotary shop, dont listen to hearsay :)
 
you can use first gen gearboxes or use series 4/5 (FC), i can also do the brake upgrades on them too
 
do you want to do it yourself or do you want someone else to do it for you ???
 
i can do the conversions but im in northern ireland and you would need to bring the car over if you wanted it done
 
i think if you search on this site alot of threads are similar to what your asking

ps i am currently working on a 13BTT with a S5 gearbox in a series 3 rx7, gotta love power to weight

2nd generation RX-7's / EGi compatible diffs?
« on: March 03, 2008, 12:34:43 PM »
hello,

sorry but your outta luck if you want a different ratio :( unless you get a factory mazda or aftermarket made crownwheel and pinion

reason, the pinion on the fc is really really long and no other diffs have the same length pinion, so you cant change ratio because you need both the crownwheel and pinion

i havent found any aftermarket for the fc, and to get made would probably cost more than the car
try a search for aftermarket crownwheel and pinion, if you find anything post up :)

you could use the crownwheel from another model car, if you got a longer pinion made up same as the short pinion teeth, to suit the crownwheel

hope info helps

Overseas / Why no more Gen 3\'s in NZ?
« on: February 07, 2008, 10:26:44 PM »
howzit :)

its nothing to do with emission laws, although they are tougher in nz and you have to have a cat if the car came with one factory,
the cars being imported can not be over 7 years old, it is to do with the frontal impact laws :(

but....... if you wait till it is classed as vintage car then you can import it :)
but nz vintage is 30 -35 years old not like uk classic which is 15 years old
dont quote me on years as its an approx

when i was last in nz 4 years ago you couldnt import series 4 rx7\'s :( to put on the road that is,
you can import anything if its not to be used on the road, hmm track/drag/drift car :)

what about lion red :)

nz rotarynut, their not into old skool cars like aus/nz that ive seen, a very small percentage is due to them being so rotten and the very small uk market in mazda rotaries

2nd generation RX-7's / turbo to buy
« on: January 24, 2008, 06:10:25 PM »
hello,

yes there is a calculator for injectors to horsepower, you only really want to go 80 percent duty cycle on your injector and dont have to high fuel pressure otherwise your spray pattern will turn into droplets and be worse off

do who do 12A turbo ?
