    Also, I love the RX-7's. I truly wish to get one some day. I hope Mazda make replacement. And before anyone says anything, no the RX-8 was never meant to be a replacement.

    Woah you've had a nice collection. Was the '88 manual?

    What don't you like about them?
    The rotary engineness. Although its different and powerfull, you have to get them rebuilt. But Google has just shown me its very easy to get rebuilt tuned RX7 engines

    Finally, this thread is picking up

    I would have loved to have gone. And yes the '88 was a manual; 5-speed.

    Oh and just to give you an indication as to what gearing and choice of 5-speed or auto can make; the '91 had 2.73:1 gears and an auto. It ran a best of 15.75 at 95 mph. The '88 with 3.23:1 gears and a manual ran a 14.5 at 96mph. The trap-speed is usually a good indication of horsepower, hence the reason why both cars had about the same trap-speed. It's strange, even if you spin the tyres heavily off the line, the speed changes very little but the time is dramatically less :rolleyes:.


    PS- Why has no one else taken the £3000 car challenge? Come on, lets see what ye can find.

    WD40 is your friend.

    Take off your -ve battery lead, then take off your distributor cap. Cover it and the rotor arm, and all the plug wires leading to it, in WD40, then reattach. Also, cover the battery terminals with grease. I can almost guarantee that if you do this thoroughly, then your car will start in all weathers!

    £3000! That's a bit steep. Just bought my second car a 1990 VW Polo for £250. I'll thrash that around for the summer then go back to my Focus.

    Wish I could have gone to Goodwood this year.

    Amazing, Button must have done at least 3 burnouts each run up the hill. I think we took around 600 photos!
