4-Rotor Volvo 142

4-Rotor142

Those crazy Swedes! I don’t think I’ve ever featured a build from the Nordic region that hasn’t been absolutely bonkers. This time it’s a Volvo 142 that has received a hand built custom chassis beneath a gutted floor pan, with a minor engine upgrade to go with it. Wait, did I say ‘minor’? I meant […]

Forum spotlight: JDMST (pt1)

jdmst1

I’m a member of many different forums, but I’m not much of a poster. JDM Style Tuning was one of the first forums that I really got involved in, posting regularly and attending meets. While I don’t post there much these days, I still like to read the forum almost daily and make the odd […]

4-Rotor FC RX7

19

So, the last RX7 I posted was devoid of a rotary engine, so here’s another one that keeps it’s Wankel roots, but with a twist. If you love engineering, machining, welding, lathes, heat treatments, stress analysis, and 3D renders, then you’re going to love this completely custom made 4-rotor powerplant. Definitely one for the tech-heads […]

Street Ray Rotary Trike

01

Here’s a vehicle type I’ve never featured before, a trike! Greg & Jeff from RX8club.com emailed me this crazy creation a while ago, definitely something worth checking out especially when you consider it’s going to be rotary powered and supercharged. Greg is actually involved in the build and is responsible for the slick prototype drawings. […]

13BT Rotary Chevy Nova

hero

I don’t know if you guys have noticed but I like to feature a bit of everything here, from big dollar to small budget, high power to electric, cheque-book-built to DIY, fabricated to bolt-on, and so on and so on. If I had to put my money on it, I’d say the most popular builds […]

13B Turbo Rotor NA MX5/Miata

CLOSEstars

I found this build in a post on Racer86, so firstly thanks to Rob for putting it out there. I’ve seen pictures of this particular car before in full drift flight, it looks so cool slammed on Work Equip 03′s (one of my favourite wheels). It’s just one of the many MX5/Miata’s built on the […]

Truckasaurus FC RX7 Pickup

17b12b69

Japanese hatches such as the FC RX7 and S13 180SX make great candidates for pickup conversions, as we’ve seen before in Japan with a few drift cars getting the chop. Earl has created his own spin on the concept with this 2nd Gen RX7, come and see it get built and continually evolve.

Quick Series 6 RX7 Build

I don’t know if this is classified as a “build’ but its a cool car regardless. Proof that the simple things in life are often the best!
