2nd generation RX-7's / Moving to Spain with the vert
« on: October 19, 2018, 10:38:56 AM »
Good morning Folks

I’m planning on becoming resident in Spain in the new year. Which means I have to take the vert with me or sell her. I prefer the first option

In order to import the car, I will need to adjust the headlights for driving on the right. I know the current lights were imported from the USA by a previous owner. Does anyone know if the fc lights are easily adjusted or will I need to order a LHD set of lamps?

2nd generation RX-7's / Wanted - Light switch unit for FC turbo 2
« on: June 16, 2017, 04:02:19 PM »
Hi folks, does anyone have or know where I can get a replacement light switch unit for a turbo 2? My lights have stopped working just in time for the mot. Looks like the switch unit itself has broken down. Ideally I would like to replace all of the switches and the housing if anyone has the complete set

Thanks in anticipation Chris

Anyone thinking of setting up a tribe for the club? Happy to help start it if you think it's appropriate but don't want to tread on any toes

1st generation RX-7's / Ferrari Yellow Rx7 FB Series 3 1985
« on: July 14, 2015, 06:17:37 PM »

 
A few weeks ago I was having BC coilovers fitted on my FC by Dwayne at Silver Fern Performance. While I was collecting the car, we got talking about his plans for the yellow FB sat in the corner of the workshop. So to cut a long story short, I am now the proud owner of another RX7, this one being a  FB series 3 in Ferrari Yellow.
 
My initial plan is to create a road legal track car with a view to progressing towards Time Attach when funds and ability allow.
 
So phase one of the plan is to get the car mobile and road worthy. It currently needs an engine (Original went bang), new seats (I can’t get my backside in to the once currently fitted) and new rims and tyres. (one of the wheels is damaged)
 
The car originally had a 12a installed. So I’m going to replace like for like with an enhancement of a half Bridgeport.
 
So that is where I am at, will let you know how things progress, especially with the engine .

New to MRC - introduce yourself / Joined Today!
« on: June 01, 2015, 07:38:56 PM »
Hi Everyone,

Just joined as a full family member so best introduce myself. Having owned a RX8 R3 I was a member of the RX8OC. Funny how a rotary engine can take hold of you. I thought that the 8 would be enough to satisfy me, but alas I took my family to Rotastock back in 2013 were we spent the day chatting with a few of you guys and admiring the variety of cars on show. My R3 was one of the newest cars on the stand, so I left envious of the older vehicles.

Anyway on June 30th last year I took ownership of a RX7 FC TII Vert (H1RXY). A lot of you will recognise it and no doubt tell me it is mint. As it turned out, it wasn’t and I spent a lot of money and a stressful time sitting in the waiting room at Group B motorsport awaiting my fate.  Don’t want to go into to anymore details just yet, let me save that story for another day. So the upshot after 11 months is I am now loving my car. I recently had to chose between the FC and the 8, strangely I chose the FC. Even though the 8 had only done 15K there was Something special about the 24 year old machine and it won hands down.

So What next? Well it’s going in for another service and MOT on Thursday with Dwayne at Silver Fern Performance on Deeside. (Dwayne has just started out on his own this last year. Really helpful and talented guy who knows his rotaries). But in addition I have caught the modding bug. So Dwayne is installing my new BC coilovers. Really looking forward to that.

Will let you know how it turns out.

Anyway that enough for now. Hope to see you at an event shortly

Chris
