  2. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    LOL Is that a rhetorical question? I think RX-7's are badass but their reliability isn't a nice as a Supra, and to be honest if anything goes wrong RX-7's are very costly in replacing parts! Besides obviously I like Camaro's better if I have 2 of em! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    The camaros have a more powerfull engine, i think there cheaper also. I You could also get the camaro as a convertable, i like converts. Its also cheaper to tune the LS1's than the rotorarys. S o id go with the camaro.<!-- Signature -->

    the camaro would smoke the rx-7.

    Ya, domestics are king. You can easily push a SS Camaro LS1 into 12.9 in the quarter mile. You can get a RX7 running 13.9 probably.
     
  6. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    quarter mile:
    Camaro ss : 11.5
    Rx-7: 13.4
    so who's better than who?
    besides camaro's aren't the type of car you have to juggle with the throttle for it to hit 60 alone
     
  7. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    I'm thinking "Why such an obvious question???"

    RX7 loses. Eventhough they're light, rotary engines are very poor with torque.
     
  8. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    ill put this nicely...
    rx-7's SUCK, camaros do ok, ive had 6 of them, and they are very easy to squeeze 400 hosrses out of. an rx-7 is pitiful compared to it, and on top of being a falling apart piece of shit, they are 1/3 ford!!!
     
  9. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    Stock for stock the SS should win by 5-6 feet in the 1/4. The RX-7 is faster off the line though (surprisingly). But then again, you can get a boost controller for the RX-7...Less than $100 (maybe more with shipping). Until the limits of the stock turbochargers are reached, the RX-7 is more easily modified.

    The rotary engines aren't as prone to wear as people assume though. My friend has a 1979 model; the engine has never broke but everything else has. Mazda isn't the best by any means.

    You guys really dont like any othere cars than chevys do you? You dont care about othere cars only chevys. Damn rednecks!
     
  11. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    This thread isn't about what you like or not, it's fact-based on whats actually faster, ASS.
     
  12. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    But you guys still think Chevys are faster than anything! Rednecks!
     
  13. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    the rx-7 evolved into a pure sports car while the Camaro is daily dragster. On track the RX7 is great cause it pulls more g's than a ferrari and does good 0-60 in 5.3 and a 1/4mi in 14 flat. The Camaro will beat it in a long straight road but they don't carve around the corners as good. Both are good cars. I've seen RX-7s drag in the 9's yet camaros do this too but with cheaper technology so they are more reliable. No doubt the RX7 is a beautiful car inside and out. Camaro guys have to respect the rx-7.
     
  14. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    Uh, the Elise can't even break 125. Thats where the Camaro cruises at.
     
  15. Re: RX 7 vs Camaro

    Besides, the better car is both. Some company makes a package to put an LS1 w/ T56 into an RX7.
