Mazmart's Interesting Projects

I'm hoping to use this thread to get Paul to give us sneak peaks at projects that Mazmart is working on. We all love the RE-medy pump and I'm sure there's other stuff Mazmart is working on. Of course my personal motivation for this thread is to get updates on a certain Miata project he's working on. If he wants to share information with the public, please do. If not, let's delete this thread.

RE-MEDY APEX SEALS by Iannetti

We will soon (3-4 months?) introduce the full series of the ultimate apex seals for the Renesis. Right now there aren't many options and especially for forced induction. Our specialty in this area is related to material compatability, strength and natrual lubricity. I promise that there will be no equal to this series. Of course these are from Iannetti who make the ceramic seals used by all the top teams in the world.

The MX5 is needing some fuel pump testing and we hope to have it running this weekend in time for my big Miata meet.

Paul.

The seals sound sweet. Not sure I'll be in needing to rebuild my engine anytime soon though (knock on wood). Iannetti seals are somewhat expensive, but I guess that'll be another entry on the "If I win the lottery" list.

I am keeping an eye on that Miata at the moment. If you ever get the chance, please put it on a scale simply to see the weight and weight distribution difference. That's going to be one sweet vehicle and I think it'll have some popularity if it's really as easy as you say it is.

Any details on what these seals are made of? Considering they're coming from Iannetti, we can only assume they're going to be expensive Are we talking a new material or a more refined ceramic?

Spill the secrets, Paul! Or I'll find you at 7stock... and try to convince you with beer!

Word up here in the midwest is the new seals are made of pure Granite Rock. Could be a rumor though.

B.S.!!!

I "heard" they were made out of adamantium! Hell, if adamantium is good enough for Wolverine, it's GOTTA be good enough for our cars, right?!

There will be more than one type of seal with different price points. Quality costs but these are for the purpose of widening the market to allow more to play.

I don't drink beer and I'll just restrict the details that are shared with Mr Engman.

Paul,
as usual it'll be a pleasure to see you at SevenStock.
Maybe I'll have Emilie bring the Massage chair. I'm sure we can get more info out of you that way...


Can't wait to see / hear the details on these.

I can always do with a massage. The right shoulder is improving drastically but my left is acting up now (Damn old age). I can bench the full stack on every machine in my gym for 10 or more reps so I'm definitely on the mend. I don't care what Emilie brings; a shoulder massage is like a gift from above.

Are you using the NC driveline or the RX-8 driveline? The guy in Australia that's building his own seems to be using a complete RX-8 driveline, but it seems like the NC components can probably take the RX-8 power.

I vote for cermet, the real, explosively consolidated powder type cermet.
It seems to have disappeared from the Google... LOL

Combination. RX8 motor and trans. MX5 driveshaft and diff. I won't initially make more than 240 whp so I should be OK.

PPF integration will be tough in this case...

Nice. I like the idea of using the Miata PPF since it's aluminum and hence intuitively lighter, though I could be wrong...

She's alive! Project RE-MX5 that is. I ran it for more than 30 minutes today. I still have much more work to do though.

Follow me on twitter. Just kidding
