Joe Maddox
Joe Maddox پیش 21 روز I have found and saved the rarest Mazda FC RX7 ever made! Now this car is rare. Really rare! Let me break this down really quick... Ever heard of the rare 100 GTUs rx7s? Only 40 have ever been claimed and only 7 are confirmed at the time of this posting! Here are the rarest rx7 FC3S models: 1500 10AE Turbo models 1400 infini 1000 winning limited 150 final edition convertible 100 GTUs... out of that 100: 83 red on black 10 black on black 7 white on blue There was only 100 GTUs models created between 1989 and 1991. If you own one of these rare models sign your car up to the registry list here on any of the rotary forums! There are rumors about a restamped GTUs model... The entire origins GTUs owners thread on the rx7club was modified, icemarks claims deleted, registry list changed to have a confirmed section and the mods agree there are not enough GTUs models to have the restamped. Icemark cites himself while making up the claims almost 20 years ago. 😆 There are no restamped GTUs models, only GTU. Stop spreading false information. There are only 100 GTUs models made, only 40ish have been claimed to have been found, only 7 have been confirmed! If you have a real GTUs you can register it here!

Should have made it so there is a flange down the bottom near the chassis so you can take it in and out.

that doesnt seem safe in a collision. you may as well mount a metal cleaver to your chassis by the driver seat.

I haven't finished yet so maybe you explained, but why are you mounting it to the body. Every vehicle I have ever been in just has them mounted to that spot on the dashboards, and they work great. If you want them to not have flex you just make sure the sheet metal doesn't have any flex, and then that it touches in multiple locations through the dash. The big thing is have a mount that screws into the front near the opening and then some anchor that goes back a few inches so it can't wobble. It just seems like crazy over kill. Especially since you will be working on this car so much and will have to remove it at some point. Not trying to jinx you but it's not a question of if it's WILL. Love the car man keep it up and you will win SEMA 2021 or 2022 depending on the pleug

A disconnect in that mount may be a good idea if you ever need to take it back apart. You could take two 2-bolt waste gate flanges and use them as a disconnect flange, or make your own flanges.

The wiring gives me anxiety attacks. I assume you're redoing it cleaner with proper motorsport connectors and such? All the Home Depot spec terminals on there will fuck up in short order and electrical problems are the WORST.

Rob old engine or gear oil (even better) mixed with old/new gas or diesel is a great penetrating oil and a better drilling lube than DW40 also hella cheap. Adjust the ration in regards to preferred viscosity and application.

That slight welding distortion is actually a good thing, it pre-stresses the plate when the parts are bolted to it, making it stiffer than would otherwise be the case. You may wish to add another strut to the plate or end of the support, to reduce or remove vibration - but that will come down to testing, and you may not need it.

Hello there rob can you please make a video of your garage talking about all your tools and everything please I am only 14 years old I have studied automobile engineering book fully all the part 1 , 2 , 3. And now I want to see what tools and many thing you have can you please make a video about that please rob I understand there is a competition for you and is it possible at least after the competition please I have planned to build my own race car formula v if you are interested you can checkout my channel and the race car build. Thank you

You can use your CNC machine as a manual and do these things that you do on the drill press if your screen keeps bugging out. My T1 is a drill chuck so you don't have to load and change tools in the machines turret. Your position screen will allow you to monitor everything
