    heh,

    that story of the vette smashing into the tree is so funny cause i saw a blue one do that do, haha god was the funny,
    the domestic vs import thing has been around since imports came around. they both have great attributes but again it depends on the car, vette's could take corners since they were created, (rear wheel drive with unballanced weight, to long, etc.)

    RX7's will destroy just about any vette in corners, even my eclipse has killed a vette in corners. I was in North Dakota (not gonna say where) sorry you'll have to do translation from km/h to m/h. (I'm Canadian <IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    I was doing about 120Km/h and was on a straight stretch when a vette passed me I head the sound system and so i figured it had to be a teen so it must have some mods, i had just gotten off the phone.
    So i gave the gas a nice lil tap and I was on my way, I came up beside him and waved him over, we stopped and talked a bit anyways i talked him into racing, (didn't take long, I mean he was in a vette and i was in a lil eclipse what could he possibly loose.)
    we parked side be side on the interstate. we both had cell phones so on the count of 3 would would race.

    1st gear,2nd gear,3rd gear,4th gear, he was still ahead of me,5th gear i was quite a ways behind him, soon as we hit the corners (i passed him, I called him, he was kinda imbaraced in his car. being the prices he paid to buy/upgrade it and the prices I paid to buy and upgrade mine.

    The Mazda RX7 is truly the greatest car of ALL time. Stock or modified, it's the best car ever made,soooooo much potential! Even in stock form though it's the greatest.
     
  4. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    One of my favorites, too bad they still aren't bringing them to the US, hope they do some day.
     
  5. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    sweet car. love to have.
     
  6. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    I wouldn't go so far as to call it the best car of all time, but don't get me wrong, I love the RX-7.
     
  7. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    A body that seems poured over the frame, performance specs that are still awsome 8 years after it's introduction, 50:50 weight distribution, very low curb weight, and a suspension that allowed the car to out perform cars with twice the price tag on the track definitely make the TwinTurbo RX-7 the greatest car of all time.
     
  8. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    Well its a prety nice car but bring it by my supra down here in miami and i PROMISE u'll have a run....i would like 2 have a RX-7 but it doesnt meatch the potential of the 1993 Toyota Supra Twin Turbo.....even stock.....dont mess wit Supras....but i still give props 2 mazda to make a car that actually is worthy......
     
  9. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    If this car is so good then why did they stop selling it in North America? Mabye its because the engines explode constantly because they are full of design flaws and parts cost a fortune. Save your money and get a vette: faster, more reliable and they dont look like a little girl should be driving them.
     
  10. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    Or maybe it's because they just weren't selling well enough and the wankel wasn't the best at emmisions. I'd never take a Vette over a thrid gen RX-7, since the RX-7 handles better and has a very inportant characteristic of a sports car that the Corvette lacks: small size.
     
  11. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    Hey HemiHead-Learn the facts before you open your mouth. A '95 Corvette was no match for the RX-7, or any of the Jap. supercars, whatsoever. Yeah, a new vette is faster than the old RX-7, but if you think that is a fair comparison I guess an '86 300ZX turbo was a much better car than the '82 vette because the Z was faster. Cars can change a lot over a couple of years and that is why your argument has no basis. Also, the RX-7 had superb reliability if driven and serviced correctly. In fact, the rotary engine gained the nickname of being "reliable as an anvil." The problem the car had was that it over heated very easily when the turbos were worked hard.
     
  12. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    **** YOU!!! rx-7s are THE greatest car of all time... they are perfect... for drift and straight.. vettes can suck my balls, ur not worthy of the name RX-7!!!!!
     
  13. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    i got my RX-7 upto 659hp...95'.. metallic silver.riped all he interior and the pass seat. STRICKTLY RACING!!! hemi head iknows nothing
     
  14. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    I raced a 99 Corvette on some windy side streets around town one day. Looked in my rearview mirror in time to see it lose control and smash sideways into a tree. Guess you shouldn't be taking turns at 120mph in a vette. When it comes to curves, domestics don't stand a chance. In some instances, I have seen domestics do shitty in straight lines .... it seems they have trouble going straight also. :D<!-- Signature -->

    u tell em rogo
     
  16. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    I love this freakin car, best money i have ever spent in my entire life. If u treat this car right it will treat u just as well. Best feelin in the world is pullin up to a car and just know that there is nothin he can do. The only prob i have with this car is people are scared to race it. Except for lil civic owners for some reason. I have raced alot of them and Mustangs. all i can say is LOL at the stangs i love the car but unless u've done some work under the hood plz dont waste my time. And as for the supra out performing the rx-7 come to one of my windy roads in Ny and we'll see whats up. Anyone can drive in a Str8 line but it takes talent and the right car to push it to the limit.
     
  17. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    sweet, if i looks good, cost more then 100 000, and its street legal... cant turn
     
  18. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    hey anyone know which rx7 has the 20B engine?
     
  19. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    The RX-7 is one pretty sweet #$%#in car. My family's got one of the 1st gen RX-7's. 1983 to be exact; it's extremely reliable and still pretty quick for such an old car. Hands down, the 3rd gen. RX-7's are the best...gotta love that twin turbo. About the Vette smashing into a tree, the most probable causes were just that both drivers sucked not that cars. But hey, let's not let this become yet another Imports v. Domestics flamefest. Both have their pros and cons.<!-- Signature -->

    if the RX-7 is the greatest car of all time why is it that they so unreliable?<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. Re: The greatest car of all time?

    THe answer to my question is that people do not know how to take care of them. Rotory engines burn Oil, and people do not understand that. Rotory engines are designed to burn, yes burn oil so you must check the oil very often, and must not use sythetic oil
    Thats todays lesson on
    Rotory engines 101<!-- Signature -->
