Stacy Vickers - Mazda RX7 FB Thunder Saloon

Post by Stacy » Sat Sep 01, 2012 8:33 am

Finally getting to the bottom of our various engine maladies the RX7 Thunder Saloon project is now finished, and we can start development. The first weekend was at Thruxton with the Classic Thunder series where we were running in 4th, then a week later with the CSCC Special Saloons where we were running top 5. Not great, but not bad with absolutely zero set up and consequently lots of understeer to contend with.

First in car montage is here;

Thanks Ian, War Machine seemed somehow appropriate to the intent..

New rear dampers and springs and a few more things on the car now so should be a little quicker next time out.

Should I stick this elsewhere too?

yeah please, do you want to copy it into 'RX7 Rides and Projects' ..... we'd love to follow the development and triumphs of this car and that's probably the best place to record it
