Damn...... Strange how an rx8 can have different characteristics when you put the power plant in something with a third of the weight.

I hope my project the doesn't drive like a pig.

Its just Rotors and GRP

Gonna be rapid, youve got the best of both worlds, roof and little bit more weight make it usable in the wet.

Let's see, I hope I enjoy it,  I'll be so disappointed after the effort.

Anyway keep up the good work on the 7

Jamie, that thing is super fast. I had opportunity riding shotgun at Silverstone few years ago...

First, Jon is good driver. Second, even tho that car is quite stock, its unbelievable. Jon really got nice car for quite desent money...

And Jon, shut up!

Oh why did you have to mention colours............. ????

Its been rattling around my head recently, Im thinking period colours and yes one is blue Jon! , but also two tone.

Im thinking silver roof at the same shade as the wheels but either imperial maroon or ambassador blue.... look below

I know they're Anglia 105e but its that era...........

I dunno for yours Jon, I like street sleepers so id keep it stock colour and confuse people, but then its an RX7 so it was designed to be fast, so yeah, maybe go wild..... I like copper these days, a bit like Tonys old 8, trend atm is copper plated stuff opposed to chrome... Copper n Satin black???

Dunno bud, colour is a very personal choice.
