Christina Lam went from the sidelines to full-on track enthusiast in 8 simple steps.
WHY DO PEOPLE INSIST ON PUTTING CARBS ON 5.0's? I don't get it... Well it is much easier to swap, but DANG! WHY?!?! ok, rant for the day done.
Built as drift car. I would closely inspect that cage.

Well from what I can see in the pictures - it's not even a cage. There doesn't appear to be any roof bars. It appears to be a roll bar with door bars.

Master cylinder reservoir through the hood. Nice touch.

There are tons and tons of 5.0 longblocks on the list of Craig for pennies and non of them are pulled with the electrics. Carbs are cheap easy and with a one wire alternator just about anybody who can walk and chew bubblegum can wire them up.

Yeah, I know. Still seems like a perfectly good waste of an engine.
Properly set up carburetors are 95% as good as the EFI that came on that engine.
Or are you just mad because you can't tune such a simple device.
In reply to turboswede:
I didn't even get further into the pics of it. Spotted at the first one. I sincerely appreciate you fixing my comment as I was extremely generous calling that crap a cage.
"here buy the car and i'm giving you 3 stacks of junk tires as a penalty"
Wait.. I'm the 11th person in this thread on the GRM message board and almost every post about a running seemingly drive able V8 swapped 5 lug 2nd gen RX7 with the start of a cage, suspension, and some other mods for what will likely be <$1500 is either negative or about how bad the mods are... WTF.
Because it will likely be the same work and money to build your own instead of buying someone else's failed/screwed up drift project.
