1983 Mazda RX-7Review

The Ultimate Giant Slot Car! — With a svelte weight of only 2350 and a powerful 12A Wankel rotary this car has the power to scoot! It handles like a giant slot car, it just never stops gripping! I've already competed in an autocross (beating a Miata :P ) and drag raced it multiple times. Best pass is a 16.344@83.34 with a dead clutch (it has 230,000 miles). It's in the garage getting a new clutch now (that's why I'm greasy at the moment...) and should be back up and setting new best times any day!

Pros: LIGHT weight, classic good looks, ether-worldly handling, rotary power, simple and easy to work on (a carburetor and a distributor!), two tops (glass and metal), clamshell hood, 4-wheel disc brakes.

Cons: 4x110 bolt pattern, no boost :(
