It is a great motorsport, but it is not racing. Racing implies being the fastest. Drifting is a competition, but not racing.

Depends on the state of the car. If the car is not exactly a looker to begin with, fix everything up mechanically and do all the performance first. Then do the bodywork. If the bodywork is clean to begin with and it wouldn't take much more to get the exterior "finished" finish the body first then the performance.

 @Dirty Monkey That's what I saw when I was there. Its what happened to Kyle Mohan and a couple of other drivers if I recall. Hit the cone. Zero. Bam.

The best article this year IMO. Of course there is an inherent advantage with such an awesome topic, but still. 80s cars are where it at.

 @nzjoleeh ^Yup. The elongated combustion chamber has inherit thermodynamic inefficiencies. Two plugs help with ignition. The 787B running a 26B four rotor had 3 spark plugs.

I'm digging the massive vents. Kinda sad that there is no more 3 series coupe, considering at first there was only the coupe. I can only hope the M "4" has a slightly more muscled look, but this is pretty good IMO.

 @blakd Stock rotary engines have a Oil Metering Pump that pumps oil from the oilpan into the combustion chamber to keep the apex seals lube.

So rotary engines DO burn oil by design. IMO this is probably why they got a bad rep with the average consumer since not many know to check their oil as often as they should. Now burning motor oil can leave carbon deposits (on top of burning you oil lol). So a mod is to remove the Oil Metering Pump, and premix two stroke oil in the. 2 stroke oil burns cleaner, leaves less deposits and gets better coverage inside the engine than the stock oil metering pumps do.

The only thing is you have to remember to put it in. I carry a 32oz bottle and fill up about 1 oz of oil for every 2 gallons I put in my Rx-7

 @eccramer ah yes. Sarcasm is hard to detect through the internet. "Fake Police" is keyboard warrior-ing. I see no problem with replica wheels as long as they don't try to pass them as real. On an on topic note, an sr-20 in an FD is quite the oddity.

 @eccramer There's a difference between fakes and replica wheels. Rotas are reps.

You should slash our infineon raceway, and put Race Sonoma. Since its no longer called infineon either.

 @Thunder2828 Yes it is. That's why the engine is called the R26B. Your average rotary (ie 13b) is 1.3 liters. Then there is the 20B which is about 2.0 liters. Then there is the 4-rotor R26B which is 2.6 liters. Of course.. some sanctioning bodies like to multiply that number by 3 or something to make it fair to other cars. I just wish le mans didn't ban the rotary.

None of these options. I'm waiting for the next gen Rx-9/Rx-7. I know its been shelved, but mazda said they will eventually make it. They already have the 16X engine to put into it.

 @Andy Y Your name was just showing as anonymous. I'm not necessarily condemning a shop because of its location. I was going to say that the other posts below come as now surprise to me,BUT after reading your other post I see that the situation was not necessarily clear to everyone. I retract what I saw that "there's your answer" in relation to 7th street. I'd still be more cautious with shops right on 7th.
