No man I haven't gone to Roebling yet, but some of the guys have. I’m getting ready to PCS out of Savannah but the rest of the guys will be around. We are trying to set up for a big meet with both the RX7 guys and the Rx8 guys before I leave since I’ve been building most of the engines and stuff.

we are running again in Nov with Darkside, but we have a little track event at Road Atlanta in June with NASA. Yall ought to come up--we have a nice set up and a great time.
As a builder--have to put the rx7 apex seals into the rx8 rotors yet?

iits a great mod but now days they make aftermarket apex seals to suit the rx8 rotors. they make stronger seals now. what type of application are you looking for. Also depends on the power your looking to make.

Lol-- I already have a pettit built engine with the taller seals. Running their supercharger set up--only 7psi boost but putting down 300 rwhp. Cam did a lot of stuff to this engine. It is NOT ported and has a very conservative tune--lead timing at 14.5 oem split and a/f's in the very low 11's. No cat--lol. Oem header.
I have a bunch more stuff--like all of us eventually do.

By the Way--got a call from Mazmart ( Paul) yesterday) and they are putting on a BIG meet June 16th. I think the rotary MX5 will be there plus a BUNCH of other sweet rides. Yall should cruise up. Great food, good times and unbelieveable lies!
Hope to see you there.

Drool

The meet will be at Mazmart Saturday June 16th. It's a pretty big meet with great food, Rick E usually shows up and many really sweet Mazdas. The rotary MX5 Paul is building is one I particulaly like looking at.
After the meet some of us will road trip to Road Atlanta and join up with a bunch of fellow Mazda idiots that will be tracking with NASA for the w/e. We will have a huge RV set up etc.
Please come and bring the family with you.
