It apparently had a problem where the engine cuts out, might fix that problem before I yank the engine so I can sell it straight on, including gear box etc

Good to see you back Grant :great:,

I'm sure you will know that as it shares the same floor pan as the RX-8 the RX-8 subframe with engine bolts straight up under it.

The NC was  actually very nearly a Rotary, indeed  I remember the day someone from Mazda HQ rang me to say Mazda had gone with the piston option :(.

I  know Mazda Europe (Germany) had a few of the Rotary version NC's out the for evaluation purposes at the time.

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Can't remember the exact place but it was in that area for sure, I was only there for the night working in a Sainsbury's then drive home.

I'm going to ring them up Monday and organise delivery etc

Going to order some of this car caster things so I can push it around easier in the garage to make room for all my other crap.

Got a few things to figure out like, how to swap the fd front cover on my engine over to an fc one so I can just bolt up my fc oil pan instead of making one etc.

Getting the engine and gear box mounted will be the easy part especially if the rx8 subframe helps fit the engine better.

Possibly thinking of getting most of the work done myself and then send it off to get it running, iv got my haltech ecu which is old but still better than an apexi however I might get one of the new haltech as they have so many safety's in them and DBW

I won the auction, yeh you have to pay within 3 days, but seeing as I won it Friday and you can't ring them over the weekend they're going to have to be lenient as only gave me a couple of hours to respond as had to wait for the owner to accept my offer, they wanted 950 for it but I stuck with 725, which is a bargain. Especially if I can fix the engine easily enough
