Has it done anything other than car shows though? I remember it from a few years back, at least links. I don't goto car shows... so I've never seen it in person.

Is that modified front suspension under the hood anything other than show?

I like how "wheel lock for every wheel lug" has its own paragraph.

Same Bomex bumper and AAC headlights as me. I get a feel what my car would look like with flares now.....glad I sold the ones I had sitting around.

I think the car would look 1000x better if the hood was painted black. The cf ruins the whole thing. I painted my cf lights and hood cause there was no ******* way I was going to join the "cf club". Ruins an otherwise good looking car IMHO.

Edit: The cf on the underside of the car however is a different story, that is assuming its functional and not just for the car show appeal.

For me, the engine is the best! But I do not like the visual.

That bumper is hideous, I hate the low pro headlights. It could use a small drop, and the flares are ugly. Im not a fan.

Just from the pics I have seen today, I will say that there is probably as much money in to the paint job on that car as I have total in to mine. I am not a huge fan of the front bumper, but all the aero work on the under side of the car is pretty cool.

pretty sure he's using 17" rims because nothing else would fit over RX-7 calipers

and even the windshield wiper motor is rx7.

Looks like all show, no go. I like the aero work under the car. The rest seems like is trying TOOO hard.

15 6uls on 275 would've been a better choice over the 17". Oh which are staggered btw

It looks "neat" and the engine bay looks like business, but thats about as far as I go on saying nice things about it.

I don't get it. Why not just drive an FD RX7? Or better yet an FD shell with an LSx engine.

The second to last picture (open trunk) looks like a BMW or something.

The pictures at the beginning look like a small crossover 4x4! Hahahaha!
