If midgets = anything shorter than you or I, which is what I consider a midget, then yes.

I love the FD styling, but that damn rotary just doesn't cut it.
Thankfully, GM created this...... and all was better with the RX7.






PS: Cheaper LS engines would also be acceptable

Model jets are too cool to pass up.












The suit doesn't leave much to the imagination, but I'd still buzz the office towers downtown.






I'm going to get you!

They're definately jet powered. And very expensive. Plus, you almost need to be a rocket scientist to get one of those tuned properly.

Still, they're very cool.

2 rx's made the top 16 at formula D seattle. 1 was a v8 FC, the other was a rotary rx8 that broke a driveshaft.

everything there had a v8.... 2 cars in the top 8 didn't.

this was about the only unique swap



yes thats a supercharged V8 in a S15....

i miss when the s15's had 2 liter turbos.

The problem is, people are starting to figure out that small displacement has nothing on lots of big cylinders. There's no way a 2.5L with a GT35 could compete with a large displacement V8.

I love my 4 bangers, don't get me wrong. But once you've tasted the rush of torque when you hit the throttle on a Vette or new Camaro, you're hooked.

for sure it makes sense to go with the v8 to drift. but it was so much more exciting when the cars had motors similar to the ones they were originally built with.

i remember seeing a hachi roku chasing down a mustang a couple years ago. the hachi was a little slower on the fast bank section, but caught up in the mid-slow speed part with nimbleness and sheer lunacy on the part of the driver. THAT was cool. seeing 2 cars with HUGE v8's lazily revving their way through the course time after time..... not as exciting.

and i don't care what anyone says. a well built twin turbo 3 rotor can hang with a v8 all day. especially on a drift track. or a 2jz. in d1gp the japs have 700+hp rb26's. sure the torque hits later than a v8, but when you've got 600+lbs-ft from 3000-6000 rpm, it doesn't matter anymore. they run street spec tires. they will get wheelspin in any gear.

just doesn't seem like it takes as much skill when all you gotta do is slam the gas pedal to get the rear out.

Don't get me wrong, these guys are amazingly skilled drivers.

it's just more exciting to me when there is diversity.

that's a good call.
It's cool to see all forms of motor competing. And like you said, one doesn't need 700hp to break the wheels free.

I still love me some of this though.



carbon everywhere and a sweet Vette motor swap.
The best of both worlds. The japanese engineered suspension and chassis, and the raw US power and driveline.

You can't find awd domestics out there like you can in the import world either. I'd probably take a GT-R over any of these cars, anyway.

To me its the same as seeing a GC with an STi motor swapped into it. very cool, something i'd love to have. but these days everybody is doing it. and just following the crowd isn't really something that i'm into.

How do the LS1 motor's weight compare to the rotary in the RX-7? I wonder if that messes up the weight distribution.
