Freddy\'s 1999 Spec Fukouh Prepared HKS T51R Kai RX-7
« on: July 13, 2009, 10:18:04 AM »
Fortunate to drive one of the FD\'s after a long while at the weekend. Drove up from London to Manchester on Fri, picked up the beast and then down again for Rotorstock the same day. Worth the wait seeing as the car won Best FD trophy at Rotorstock. :D

Still amazed just how well a sorted FD handles, excellent grip and feels as thou its on rails around the bends. After some 17 years, there are a few cars to come out of Japan to provide a similar feel to drive.

Anyway, took some novice pics yesterday. No full spec list and just pics of the exterior. However, to summarise - Car is a very low mileage 1999 Type RS model with bigger brakes etc in Mazda innocent mica blue. Strapped to the large ported engine is a HKS T51R Kai turbo with other supporting modifications allowing it to enter the 500 BHP + member list. :cool

Look forward to all thoughts and comments guys, meanwhile I\'ll be uploading interior and engine shots later today. :)

I love it, I even like the back end, seems to really suit it.

Any night time/ evening shots Freddy? may change people\'s opinion on the rear end.... very different but nice.  I bet you get funny looks from people while on the road not just because of the car but that company decals:Laugh

Nice matey! But yeah have to agree on the decals front, just kinda looks like your trying to be witty/rude or something like those scallies do, heard several people asking why you had \'fukuoff\' or whatever interpretation they thought written on what is an otherwise smooth car.

Thanks for the comments guys! Still getting used to the new camera. :)

No night time or evening shots but will get some soon. About the decals, it had a lot more which I removed but decided to leave Fukuoh seen as they did most of the work. Although that does leave a fair few passer by\'s thinking it to say something else! :Hammer
