Yeah buddy!

 

I actually hate them.  Theyre loud, they stink, they break, but something about how quickly it gets up to 9k, and the sounds it makes...its good.  I love them.  But theyre turds.

Self confessed rotary chick here.  I agree, they are assholes but I just can't help but love them.  That said, most reliable car I have ever owned? My RX7

 

12a? 13b? or are you rich and have a 20b?

I am poor, and have more 12a parts laying aound than a non-hispanic should.

 

Use button heads on the adjusters.

No more thread jacking, but now I see a stock unmodified manual rack.  You are fucking with my emotions.  

 

Spill the beans.

I need that steering wheel adapter in my life! Woodward? I have a generic billet one, but that is soooooooooo much cooler.

@datsunfreak - The Woodward hub is silky smooth operation too.  I haven't had a chance to actually mount a wheel to it, but that damn thing feels glorious...

I'm half hispanic so it's ok for me to have tons of rotary parts right?

 

Rich enough to have a running 20b lol.  That's pretty freaking rich in my book.

We order direct.  I don't know where else you can get a genuine one from.  Like Chris said, the thing is smooth as butter.  Definitely nicer than something like an NRG quick release.

All good. I found one.   :thumbup:

I was really just interested in the 3-to-6 adapter, but that's good to know.  :thumbup:

 

I have bought one NRG in my life. That was enough.   ^_^

 

As far as quick releases go, we are all about the weld-on versions now. Got tired of messing with bolt-ons...   :rofl:

I was wondering why I couldn't see any recent up dates... photobucket.com now wants us to pay money to view this post.... is that what everybody else is seeing? Or am I missing something? Thanks!

IDK if this forum will let me post a facebook video but, here is a short vid of us cutting oiling grooves in the main saddles

 

https://www.facebook.com/5523motorsports/videos/1469578799755400/

not the direct video but we can click the link,though it lets you post pics from fb which is 10 more reliable than photobucket from my short experience in the forum btw what a nice project you have there !
