About

I bought this car in 2007. When I was a kid and I first saw this car I fell in love with it and vowed to get one of my own. And now today I have one. Its slowly but surely getting fixed up. I have kids so the parts are slowly getting bought. But its a fun ride and can really move. I even went back to where I am from in Texas and raced it against other cars on the Eagle Mountain Lake cliff roads. They are full of hairpin turns. But to get to the point, I beat an RX8 and a Mustang Saleen in my car. It can really corner. Almost as good as my Integra. My RX7 is named Silver, just like in the Lone Ranger. Hiyo Silver, awaaaay!

Added: Let me put in a little clarification for those who would dispute my car beating a Saleen. Granted the Saleen has more HP but I know how to drive my car, he didnt. And if you have ever seen the Eagle Mountain Lake Cliff roads you would understand as soon as you seen all of the hairpins and corners. When my car first came out in roadtests it beat the Porshe 924 in the corners and handling.The only thing that the 924 beat the RX7 in was acceleration. And that was just barely. I am not a rich kid like the guy who had the Saleen. Mommy and Daddy didnt buy me my car. Every car I have owned I have bought myself. I work on my own cars, I rebuild my own engines and I add my own mods. I dont put mine in a shop and let someone else work on it because I dont know how. And anytime I race and I win it was me and my car that did it. Not someone elses labor. Mine.

Specs

13b rotary engine. Havent gotten it on the quarter mile yet but the time is coming soon. Have to get a few mods for it to run even faster! The fastest that I have gotten this car was 160 mph on the highway. But in the hills the top speed was 140mph. Flatter is better. Gotta get Silver on the Dyno soon. Maybe my next trip to Fort Worth I will do it.

Factory Options

Come on, its a GXL. They were packed with extras. Sunroof, AC and even the electronic suspension adjustment that changes it from normal to sport. And it all still works! And lets not forget the independent rear suspension and the four wheel disc brakes.

Mods

Hmmm, not much yet. Just a new Pioneer stereo, 2 Kicker Comp 12 inch subs, 2 Kenwood tweets, and 2 4000 watt Sony X-plode amps. Its loud as hell. And if you are wondering why so many brands, I think that each one is the best for that part.
