Rotary Powered Mazda Wagon
« on: July 29, 2003, 01:13:25 PM »
I took my brothers Wagon for a run today around the block.  

It is the fastest car I have ever driven!

The acceleration is incredible.

It was breaking traction in 3rd gear around 3500rpm - just awesome.

Hoping to get it out to the drag track soon, with the right tyres it should easily run 12\'s - possibly high 11 second passes and it is only on 9psi of boost!

Config. is a standard Series 5 engine with a rather large TO4, Microtech fuel injection - soon to be MoTeC :)   Toyota 5 speed, custom Ford 9 inch diff.

Pic here...

Thanks,

I\'ll dig some out - it is quite different to what you would expect to see.
Thanks,

Pic4 - not enough room for the wastegate to go on the bottom side of the turbo, so she is on the top!

Cool  ... thats one quick car

Hey just noticed it has K-MAC top mounts ... I hadn\'t heard of the company till i bought a S/H anti roll bar kit for my RX-7

What else do they make ?

Mike,  I thought I had replied to this, see http://www.k-mac.com.au/  - they do quite a bit there.
Thanks,

cool , I\'ve e-mailed them as I need some bushes for my anti roll bar (they are new but 20 years old and the bushes have been lost) Hopefully they will get back to me otherwise it\'ll be a custom jobbie from superflex or boring out the PST ones I already have
