Apr 16, 2009 update on CMSgreg's 1979 Mazda RX-7

Slicks n Skinnies

update image

No they are not really slicks and skinnies old yellow is currently sporting 215/65/14s on the rear and 155/80/13s on the front.

By the way if anyone is interested five of the front style wheels will be for sale soon.

We finished up putting the rear end in out of a GSL-SE. Next on the plate is to put in the front suspension out of an SE in so that the bolt pattern will match. We have the parts they are just waiting in the garage. The swap is esentially a bolt in affair and was made very easy by using some brake line converters from Billy at RE Speed.

We should have the front swap done by May 9th for the super rallycross in Starke, FL at European Rally School. It will be riding on Racing Beat springs all the way around. After that some body work and interior issues will be taken care of.

And yes I know she needs a bath.
