Got a chance to race an fd last night..... well sort of race. I was turning out onto a main road when a black fd with a large exhaust went by. So I chased after him got next to him at a red light right as it was turning green. So we both took off normally he went out a little bit faster and his buddy was looking out the window ( I'm guessing looking for my front mount ). So we end up slowing down to probably 30 or so and I point forward and nod and he punches it gets the jump because I let him go first. I run out second and we are even go to hit third and miss it. We were coming up on traffic so we both u-turn. This time it's a much slower roll 15-20 and I'm actually in first. I let him go first again. I time it a little better this time so we stay pretty even on this one. I hit second and loose some traction pulling slightly, hit third and he either let off or missed a gear. I was really waiting for third because that's when I would have started walking away. Don't really know what happened I drove off and he has slowed back down to the speed limit. I'm guessing he just wasn't wanting to go 70mph+ because we were in a 45mph even though there weren't any other cars on the road. I'd really like to get in a highway run with a third gen sometime soon. My clutch is slipping pretty bad now. I'm about to upgrade and I've got a t-78 that is supposed to be here on monday. Right now I'm just BPU. Intake, full 3 inch exhaust from the dp, boost controller running 18psi, cam gears, and the front mount. Last time I dyno'd it put down 425rwhp with the clutch slipping up top and me loosing out on some power. I'm guessing the fd was probably just intake and exhaust

Me too it just sucks because he let out before I started to pull. My first and second gear are boring the car isn't all that much fun until you hit third.

^indeed my FD in 3rd is a rocket but none the less nice kill

I'm sure that helps too ;) I don't know I just thought it was wierd I've never had anyone let off in a race like that.

I'm not to sure about those numbers? I've never seen a rotary with more torque than horsepower. Maybe 527hp with 464 torque, sounds a little more realistic.

You're mean
Haha...this is Supraforums, not RX-7 forums!

I have lots of respect for RX-7s, I like them quite a bit. Therefore, I like more to see them go down to a Supra ;).
