test drove a 93 400hp rx7 today



I got to test drive my uncles rx7 ESTIMATED at 400hp, all i gots ta say is WOW! to all the people who hate on jap cars, dont hate if u dont know what ur talkin about, this car was just begging me to drive it hard, but i couldnt cuz im not experienced in driving high hp cars, the only thing i did was from stand still i dropped the clutch, crazy wheel spin, shifted to second, crazy wheel spin, shifted to third, still spinning and then i let go, this rx7 felt very torqish and when i came back to the garage i think it was upset with me because i drove it like a sissy i felt kinda stupid after cuz i turn the key to the off position and start to get out but then i realize that its still running, it ran for like 2 mins and then shut off by itself, then it dawned on me that its the turbo timer, anyways i would love to take this car and race some jap car hater. GO JAP GO!

Big aftermarket for those rotary engines.
You can get some good HP out of them, but just so long you plan on a new engine every summer.

Is that true for the last generation RX-7? I know the old ones were unreliable but the newer ones too?
