all depends on the track
for the imcc champ rounds i put brand new zac foams on and after 3 races and a final the diameters of the fron is 66mm and the rear is 64mm and there is a hole lot of foam left, the rims are 50 mm in diameter

This is also very dependant on the set-up used on a car, I set up a car 2 weeks ago with 2.5deg rear toe and 3 deg camber on the rear and it dropped 1 sec lap time (way cool) It was previously running 2 deg and 2 deg. However after 3 x 5min heats and a 15 minute final there was about 1mm left on the rear tyres!. Zac foams are excellent and have really good wear properties especially the multi-ring foams.

The Rx 7 i will get soon hopefully will be worked to the absolute shit house and estimation for its power is between 350-450 depending on EMS being ran and the Turbo that gets hooked.
Plus mircotech have turbos for rotarys that get up to around that sorta power. 1750 for just the turbines.

the RX7 will b a 1980,

The RX4 IS a 1974 model.
and its about to have a motor change to a 1991 13b Twin Turbo out of a RX7 series 2.


Note: 450KW was an estimate. not actually built the engine yet.
b about another year or 2 b4 the engine even starts to get worked.

lol

u have a rx4 and a rx7

The reason i dont have the money to upgrade the S is because i can only work in the holidays consistently, and then, i put 3/4 to all of my pay in the bank for later.

And no a friend in qld has a RX4 that just got full restored, and a RX7 that he payed 800$ cause it was smashed up in the back.

he only wanted internals so he doesnt care.

Hey guys, im finally stepping out of my grease diffs and i need somehelp with wat weight oil would be good front and back for netball courts.
I really dont wanna change but i need to service them and like the grease im using in the front is the normal stuff bought with the car.

So what weight normally gets used by u guys?
