    hmm, I wouldnt say afraid lol. :)
    Im friends with the hat who has been into RX7's for a while now, also there's a guy local to me who rebuilds RX7s and is meant to be pretty amazing with them. Also another member in Minty.Fresh has been re-building his FD3S so im around a few people with the know how! :D

    Im looking forward to it in all fairness. Iv never been a massive fan of this engine and it'll be a fresh change for me and the car for next year! :)

    Well then its a whole other case! :) Here in Denmark we have about 3 or 4 guys who are Rotary wizards, and they are not that common, and people always talk about rotary being shitty as hell. but i think its a lovely engine, but ive heard alot og bad things about them! But im looking forward to follow your rotary Mx project, it sounds pretty sweet mate :)

    13b ftw.....similar plans myself so to speak.

    Project-G stuff is very good. Would be interested in their G-string roof thing myself maybe. Trying to picture it on what mine should look like lol and cant decide. Would it hold? Sideways air etc make any difference do they know? Also they seem pretty pricey, what kind of prices can you do one for? All stuff (straps etc.) included. And finally are they interested in any sort of sponsorship at all? I can go in to more details if they might be. Worth a shot!

    Basically a Triumph decided to overtake me as I was turning right, I was indicating and basically stopped and he was flat out.. :/ He went to hospital and he admitted fault. OOOOOOOOOOOOOH WELL! :/

    On the plus side I got a new engine from a Mk2 so Round 2 at teeside should see things a little easier with all 4 working cylinders.
    I'll go get some pics of it.

    Man that sucks, particularly about the wheel.

    Massive whiplash claim then ram a 13b in?

    Love this car, read through the 30 page build on nutz

    Its at times like this i like to remember the six million dollar man "we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster" just replace steve austin with minty ;)

    Yeah I actually spent last week looking all over for those wheels.. :/ more annoyed about that than anything else as the rest can be fixed for cheap. The track rod end is at a 90' angle and the super seal rod is also bent like a L shape.. rack is now totally goosed too. Somehow the Project-G side fuser didnt even budge.. I cant believe that tbh, but there you go! Solid!

    Oh and iv already got a 13b in another shell so its not too bad :) However goes to show you.. It was a 30 zone and he must of been nipping on. He sent my car flying and if I had been a split second sooner he would of gone straight into my door... :/ not worth thinking about tbh.

    Shit the bed! Glad you're alright mate. Shame to see the car looking like that, but I'm sure you'll bash it back into shape.
