I suppose it depends on the drivers ability to not drive above his limits. For actual details why not call John and give him a chat.

And try to find this guy:

Just curious, what kind of deal did you find to think it would be a good starting point?

And lesson in language for Vince..the enrish terms "stictch" and "seam" weld are like the endless stupid nerds who argue "motor" versus "engine"
Example "run a half-inch stitch every 1 and a 1/2 inch or so along every seam you can see and reach in the car"

The seam is where you stitch.....if ya wanna do any good, eh?
99% of the arguments about it are from guys who have never welded a fucking thing in their lives.

Make sense to me.

Not a particularly great deal tbh, $14,500 for a southern automatic with 80k miles.

I was going to build my 15' STI into a stage rally car, but it would have taken too long to pay off the loan. The FD gives me like 2 years to build the car, pay it off and then thrash on it. Gonna keep doing autocross and track days in the meantime.

I'm just a F&F fanboy that wants an FD to track, and who also happens to want to rally.

[EDIT] and that rally video of the FD was amazing

Seems expensive, mint i suppose? Here in Quebec FD's go for 15-20k cad$ in really good condition, under 10k for some jdm versions and aesthetically unpleasing ones.

Yeah, it's in pretty good shape. I just wanted a straight, rust-free chassis to start with so I paid a little extra. It would pain me a little bit to hurl rocks at it, but I'll do what needs to be done winking smiley

I would build that into a track car and get a volvo 240, xratty or FB rx7 for building a good 2wd rally car. But if you want this to be a rally car then, the decision is yours to make.

All the info you or anybody needs has been beaten to death decades ago..

The one time a RX-7 made one WRC event it was no mystery..We all know way back then..
Its just that guys like to fapp for 15 or 20 years thinking there's some big mystery when there isn't..It was known then what to do and its known now..same thing>

What's missing is desire and discipline and nobody outside of you can supply that.

Big 5 link, short gears, and CR gears, quick rack, good brakes, towers.
same as it ever was..
Same as it ever was.

10.2. CLASS RULES A. Open Category

1. The Open Category is comprised of five Classes: Open, National Limited Open, Open Light, Group 5, and Group 2. It is the intent of these Rules that vehicles competing in the Open Category be based on production vehicles. Innovation and modifications within the rules is encouraged. Non-production based vehicles (i.e., "one-off" vehicles) built from the ground up, are explicitly prohibited. In general, freedom is given to modify any component of the vehicle providing that it is not otherwise restricted below.

2. The engine is unrestricted.

3. For Open Class and Group 5; adjusted engine displacement must be no greater then 5100cc using the following multipliers:

Rotary :1,8
Turbo/supercharged : 1,7
Pushrod : 0,8

All applicable multipliers must be used in determining adjusted displacement.


Here in the US, 1300cc * 1.8(rotary) * 1.7(turbo) = 3978cc. I'm not sure Quebecois math works. Probably something silly involving the words "septante", "huitante", and "nonante".

HAHA!

Yes, I now you can in 'murica, wich is kind of nice.
In Canada, and Québec, the rule is (and I paraphrase here) : No turbo on rotary.
No math involve.
