Basically I come to a stop light and a guy in a Toyota Tacoma pulls up next to me and yells something to the effect of "RX-7s Rule!!" I was like WHA???. Anyways he tells me they are really fast and it would smoke me. I said not really. He responds to me by saying that I've never raced one and I wouldn't know. I told him to find me an RX-7 that runs and I'll race it! :lol: :devil:

True story.

P.S. I think he thought I was driving a Honduh. :confused:

Local here in the Bx. has a 900WHP RX7.
Our 12A Rotary KP61 runs 9.97 1/4s (@20psi) & techically could be made street legal by putting the glass back on it (lexan windows on now).

My AE86 GTS is super slow....

i had an RX7...it broke down a lot.

RX7 = over 300whp.
Subaru = maybe 100whp.

RX7 = more hours in garage than on the road.
Subaru = more hours rallying.

SUBARU FTW!

Yeah, but Keener's RS puts down a lot more than 100whp. ;) At least he didn't say RX-8's RT3HFAZT4R!!!

exactly...so why would his Subaru be worse than a silly motored unreliable torqueless (sp?) car?

There are times I miss my RX7 because they are a blast to drive and even more rare than a GC but...it was too much work...and being in college I just don't have the time or money.

And...even if you can't beat an RX7 at a track (they handle way better than GC's sorry guys...) you can always challenge one to a Rally...I bet you would win at that! :rolleyes:

whats funny is that Scuby is better than rx7, i know alot of 7 owners who did the trade and including this guy i was an fb and fc owner for a bit but lets see i had to fight with it to keep them running, and for me the handling was eh. Subies stock though under power are way more fun.

The RX7 handles so much better and brakes better and is faster. In my opinion the RX7 platform is great but the motor is crap. They can be made to make power but don't ever last very long. I think a piston motor in the RX7 platform is the best way to go. Reliable power and great handling.
