    I'm currently working on my 1987 RX7 to run in FP. I basically know what needs to be done, but I was wondering if anyone else has built one to run in FP? If so what were your major stumbling blocks toward getting the car setup decent? I'm not to worried about the engine right now. I'm going with a stock NA and will install a Webber carb. to get me going.

    Thanks in advance for info.

    The definitive source has to be Craig Nagler at Tri-Point Engineering, [url="http://www.tripointengineering.com/"]http://www.tripointengineering.com/[/URL] He pretty much kicked all our asses in the early 90's with his second-gen RX-7T. He spent a lot of time optimizing the front suspension geometry, and working with shocks.

    The biggest stumbling blocks for most of us are unlimited money & time SCCAForums Image

    Good Luck!

    I know the car you are talking about. The owner lives about 2 hours drive from me. I haven't seen it at a race in about 4 or 5 years. I have tried to get the owners phone number but its unlisted. That is an awsome car but way out of my league. I have to go the cheaper route to start with. The main thing I need is suspension information like spring rates, type of struts, swaybar sizes etc....... If I can get the car to handle good I'll try to add a more substantial engine later but the handling comes first.
    Thanks for the reply again.

    Seriously, call tri-point and ask to talk to Craig. He will be most helpful, and can give you advice for improving your car based on it's current preparation level.
