Yeah from a function standpoint it makes sense. Rotary bays get pretty warm so every bit helps.

May 2012 update.

I've been very busy with the new career and detailing on the weekends, so I haven't been able to do much other than to throw on the other carbon parts and snag a few pics. I also installed my Sparco racing seat and harness.

Lol, I was at a meet last night and some pics were taken of my car, and now, on the forum which the meet represents, I am being called a ricer because my steering wheel is on the right and because I'm not running hellaflush fitment. Just thought I'd share that. Here are the pics in question.

To lessen the 'ricer' nonsense and, in my opinion, to improve the overall look of the car, I would ditch the shopping cart wing and get a trunk lip. Same thing with last gen supras. I just think they look dope with a trunk lip and no spoiler.

I'm not saying that I don't like your car. I do. I really do. I'm extremely jealous of you for having such an automotive icon. Just my opinion. No hard feelings 'brah'

None at all, don't worry! But I will not get rid of my functional 3D GT-wing (This is a track car after all) for a lip spoiler that is purely aesthetic (which is what is essentially the motive behind calling someone a ricer: aesthetic only/non functional mods).

Ask them to race you around a track and see if they still talk all that shit.

lol. that's exactly what I'll be doing. lol. the popular track around here is pretty short and when you're hovering around the 1 minute mark, you're pretty fast. I'd like to break through and be sub that.

PS.: "racing is over rated. There's no style in racing. It's all about the fitment bro." lmao

Ditch that frog eye headlights, put a cover back on and retrofit a set of projector in those 99 Spec turn signal, I think that will make the car look much better

^ to the Spoiler comment - I was out with a bunch of buddies and some guy was bragging about how his truck looked so dope with his new spoiler on the back of the box. I yelled over to him saying that a brick of cheese would be more functional. I had the whole bar laughing at him. Needless to say I bought him a drink to soothe his bruised ego.


I agree that one of the RX7 look great without the spoiler, but it the thing serves a function as JoeyV says - it looks awesome them.

I finally got the car weighed on the way back from that meet. It weighed in at 2620 lbs with about 120 lbs of extra stuff that isn't normally going to be in the car for race days. Originally, it weighed 2910, I've dropped a little over 400 lbs, I'm happy with that, but I'd like to lose another 100
