What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Therefore today, I went to visit a local RX7 specialist, RE-Sugiyama (yes, those exist if you live in Japan :) ), and well, let’s say he had... a few interesting stuff.

First, my car won’t be ready until he comes back september 25th. Come back from where you ask me?? The 6 hours of Spa Francorchamps Classic. Yup, he goes there with his son and he’ll be racing one of his race prepped RX-3s! Yes plural because he happens to have a shit load of cars, including some FC Rx7 capable of 60seconds laps around Tsukuba!!! In comparaison, a stock R35 GTR does around 62/63s if pushed by someone like Tsuchiya :)

Needless to say that you can expect a few articles on them in the future and that I’ll try to find my way into the paddocks, taking pictures and doing my best to have them let me do a couple of laps!!

Anyway here are a few pictures of his racecars during old races and so on along with a picture of the shop... Damn, it’s freaking awesome and I feel so lucky being here and meeting people like this! Not to mention that they are freaking nice also! I was expecting some kind of rather big company, but it’s just a little family buisness. Father, son and daughter taking care of Rotary cars and Fennec foxes... Yes, they also breed and have a few Fennec foxes :D
