Just a bit of a diary really of what's going on with the RX7.

Not had the car that long but there are a few things need changing, the awefull HKS mushroom filters are being dumped and will be replaced by Apexi items that are sat in the garage at the moment.

Yesterday I decided to splash out and replace the 10+ year old rubber suspension bushes and have ordered a complete (front/rear) Powerflex kit courtesy of the bay...

Well the longer you leave them the worse they get I guess.

Although leave them long enough and they fall out themselves... one of mine did :cry:

Guess you could start soaking them now.

Finally got hold of the bushes!

Wasn't too impressed with the packaging to be honest, the boxes were just put in a courier bag, and one box was fooked, hence the bushes not in boxes in the pic! Taken about a month for them come though and the bushes themselves are fine so not gonna bother complaining.

Just need to find time get them fitted now!

Sounds cool that Rework rx7 goes a bit though, it went sideways into the armaco at shakesphere in front of my mate at one of the jap racer days took 2 hours to get the track open again my mate was well pleased LOL
