RE-Xtreme I

Welcome to RE-Xtreme Version I.

This blog is a development story of my first FD3s RX7. You can see the history of this beast and it's travels. It has gone to a new owner, who should build of what I started. Enjoy RE-Xtreme Version I.

It was fun while it lasted.

Blast from the past.

The new owner (Luke) has contined from where the last left off. C-West has had a bit more influence on my old car. First thing I noticed was the C-West Lights and radical new paint.

Rextreme Ver.I Replica Progress

Currently working on a replica. It will be close but not exact. Wheels are hard to match, but I think I will finish it with a gt wing also.

Last days

These are some of the last pics of the FD in my ownership.

It was really looking good with the rear spacers and I was enjoying it until the end.

Lessons learned... NONE

Money Spent... TOOOO MUCH!

Advice.... keep it standard!

This is the car looking it's best! Spacers are on. The wheels are filling the guards nicely, It is tuned with bags of tyre burning power.

I was driving hard a lot. And still using the car daily. I replaced the clutch and installed the Header pipe and got a new Catalyser.

Polished up, the car looked awesome.

But it was getting time to sell. The cost of ownership in Australia is very high. Insurance is required and is very expensive.

The car was not efficient on fuel and with the daily nature of my driving, I needed something else.
Hmmm. What to do?
