FC RX-7 Time Attack/ST build progress – March 2012

A few months passed, and a bit more work done. Have the entire underside and engine bay painted finally which means some of the assembly can be done.

Managed to get most of the front suspension installed in place and a wheel and tire to see what fitment would be like… wide!

The tires are just temporary/shakedown tires, from the 2011 Rolex 24, used for a single heat cycle and sold to me for fraction of the price.

Throughout the whole process my good friend Dave Halabourda has been helping me. He installed the Pettit Racing coilovers which are double adjustable and look fantastic.

These coilovers were developed by Pettit for thier own race cars, and have ultra-stiff springs, relying less on the anti-roll bars for body control. 15kg/mm in the front, 12kg/mm in the rear.
