Okay. Audrey and Audrey II. Audrey is the Roadster in my avatar. I bought that car from my cousin who has a car dealership adn had taken the car in on a trade in the early 90's. Love the car. Fun autocrosser. Severely limited in stock class by narrow wheels. Fun to drive. My cousin had named the car...

Thanks everyone. Sorry this response is so late. I had one written Thursday during work. But I'd write a little bit, work a little bit and by the time I hit the Submit button, I had been logged off. That's not meant as a criticism. I had not run into that before. So a relatively long response was lo...

No revs

I've been struggling with this for six weeks now. (I'm sure many of you know that I bought Chris's car from him in the first part of September.) The first time I took it out it wouldn't rev above 1000 rpms after I let the clutch out. It revs fine when it's not under a load. It seems like a timing is...

I would like to thank Chris for all of his support in the acquisition. He was just great. The trip home was completely uneventful.

I hope I can do the car justice.

Thanks, SpuZ. I had forgotten about G Prepared (hey then I wouldn't even have to change the lettering on the side :lol: ). There was a list in Fastrack with the cars proposed for GP. I don't think the Roadster was on it. But I imagine it would only take an e-mail to Doug Gill if I wanted to go this ...

Would autocrossing be a worthy vocation for this car? It really seems like it should go to a person who wants to road race it.

Chris, Would you happen to know if the car would be legal to autocross in D prepared? I don't have this year's rulebook. I'm not sure why I would expect you to know about its autocrossing legality, but thought I'd ask anyway. Earlier when you first put it up for sale I was thinking about that. The t...

Datsun Victory at the Peru National Tour

I was perusing someone's internet photo album of the Peru National Tour Autocross event and I found this: http://public.fotki.com/billdaddy/scca_photos/2005_peru_national_tour/p7020080.html Beautiful Car. I had scanned through the results earlier in the week, but had missed the fact that this car, d...

FWIW, I read on the internet (sccaforums.com) that you do have to have a hard copy of the rule book at the events you mentioned. Bear in mind that the rules are meant to put fully prepared cars in clas together. If you don't go all the way then you will not win no matter if you drive a Miata or a Yu...

Just a reminder that it's THIS Sunday on SPEED to watch Bill in the runoffs.

I don't know if a reminder is needed since the thread's still at the top of the list. But, if it does anyone any good it'll be worth it.

Oops. I was wondering if my limited knowledge of the Mazda engine designations was the crux of my misunderstanding. There's a guy in our regions who runs a 1st gen RX-7 in CSP with a 13B motor from a mid 80's 2nd gen in it. I guess that's where my thouhgt that a 13B must have been new in the mid 80'...

I just went over to the moutons site and the RX-3 and the RX-7 are listed on separate lines. So you can't (as I understand it) update/backdate across those models. But maybe be I over-interpreted Brian's post to mean the Elam has a 13B in his Rx-3 when he didn't mean to say that. There was a profile...

I know I should wait until I have my rulebook in front of me. But You can put a 13B in an RX-3? :shock: The 13B was the second generation RX-7's motor, right? About 1985. (If I'm wrong about that, ignore the rest of this rant.) That would mean that the RX-3 and the 2nd gen RX-7 would be on the same ...
