Let me re-phrase that; mine is a street car for use on the street. His is a
competition car which can be driven on the street. His car may be legal and
docile enough to drive on the street, but the suspension system is flat out
competition. I have neither the knowledge nor the skills to do that. I have
the fabrication skills to build it if I knew what to build, but I don't have
the driving skills to fine tune it once it's built.

into the pits. I might win at the dragstrip, provided I got enough of a lead
by half track to keep him from blowing by on the top end. At a 1/8 mile track,
I would probably win, but on a 1/2 mile track, I would lose for sure. When my
engine folded over at 6500 RPM, the rotary would still be winding out towards
10,000 plus. I've driven RX7s, both stock and modified, and they can be
