I actually owned a 93 rx7 touring model. The car was fast about once a week. The other times of the week, I was the fast one, hurrying to fix my car by the next weekend.
You DON'T want an Rx7, unless you don't plan on doing any mods AT ALL.
If you want an rx7 as a daily driver, you will need 7 of them and a full time mechanic. One car for each day of the week. (why do you think they call it an rx7 )
That guy might be flashing his hazards now because he beat you, but one day you will see them same hazards flashing on the side of the road, while smoke is pouring out the front of his car.
Just to let you know what I went through with my rx7.....I bought it mostly stock, tweaked it with a DP, Intercooler, and intake. Then the stock turbo's whistled for their last time while racing a firebird (and of course he thought he beat me). I replaced them with new stockers that I modified to run as true twins instead of sequential. A few thousand miles later, #2 turbo goes phoey.
So I opt for a single turbo upgrade. After weeks of installing full fuel system, full 3.5" exhaust, V-Mount IC setup, Apexi Power FC and the monster 70mm turbo kit, I finally had it running right. Then several weeks later my PFC picked up a little knock on a hot day, so I took it home for inspection.....She never started (or at least stayed started) again. I sold it on Ebay for 9k........I had at least that into the mods.
Don't think for one second that Asscracker hasn't had the same problems, that is probably why he flashed you to begin with, because inside he was like "finally a clean run without something breaking."
So, that is why it seems that most rx7 guys are assheads...because they are just plain tired.
Too bad the rx7 powertrain sucks......In my book it is the most beautiful car I have ever owned. I can post some pics if you want.
Now guess what?...........I own a WRX.....
