Yup, everything is amazing from the thought, guy that built it to the end product. Only thing I don't really like are the front wing extender....? thing's. Spoils the delicate, smooth lines of the car in my eye.

@L4fty wide body has always been around and this kit makes it look like how these cars looked in the gt classes. The widebody they didn't have are these bolt on rocket bunny styled kits. This is not that. How have you never seen cars widebodied in the 90s or 2000s?

T'Arris Brown
T'Arris Brown Prije mjesec
gas prices have never been a problem for people that own rotaries. Reliability isn’t the issue it was, people are building these engines to last. Kswapping them is not so common and decreases the value of the car. plenty of us rotary owners are well pass 130k+ on the engine and have had no swap. simple maintenance keep them on the road. piston owners just want to beat the hell out of their cars and not take care of them. 🤷🏾‍♂️
Quattro Joe
Quattro Joe Prije 2 mjeseci
@guy with a google account they sound cool but I don’t think they are really worth all the hassle that comes with them. Awful fuel consumption, reliability is suspect, fuel additive headache. It’s just not worth it compared to other piston engines. This is why K swapping them is so popular. Oh and you don’t need to pull the engine to rebuild it every 40 to 60k

Glad you've discovered how much fun the RX-7 is. The thing is, the FD is designed from scratch as a sports car, rather than being based on a saloon like GTRs and M3s. The whole fundamental architecture of the car is just right, which is why it feels so good to drive. Great work by John here, the bodykit and paint look world-class and the wheels and stance back it up. I love the originality with the front lip and centre-exit exhaust, too! Having said that, most of the changes aren't about how it drives, so a stock-bodied car with a mildly tuned engine would still give you most of the same thrill from behind the wheel - no need to spend years slaving away in your garage to get the RX-7 grin on your face!
triggamusician Prije 2 mjeseci
When I was 23 I couldn't even afford to fill up such a car, let alone drive it with the horrendous fuel consumption. Don't get me wrong, the RX7 is one of my favorite cars and I love this one quite a lot.

Dan Lazaro
Dan Lazaro Prije 2 mjeseci
Oem+ type builds and simple splitters are the kinds of styles that I'd keep the pop ups in a car like this, but when it's edgy, wide body, something like the kit in the video, an re amemiya even a vertex kit those look good with no pop up headlights. And dare I say they look odd with pop up headlights.
Shikiagi Prije 2 mjeseci
yeah, every time I see a rx7 build without pop-ups I always ask myself "why would you do that"

A great build and lovely sentiment at the end Alex. . The production quality and these videos in general are getting better and better all the time.

I used this kit in FH5 and painted it candy red with work wheels or Hres can't remember. I was wondering what it resembled so much in my head and came across this video and now I remember. I have a custom livery on that car now but the front end is still red. This still blows my mind to see until now.

@Ben Gray Probably a lot more than 15k. The cheapest RX-7 on autotrader right now is £37k and that’s not had any work done it. I wouldn’t be surprised if that build cost well over £45k not including all the tools required and the purpose built “shed” to build it in

Khan, WrathOf Prije 2 mjeseci
@BerserkFury89 getting custom parts built (though not cheap) is not astronomically expensive. There's plenty of shops that'll do custom fabrication for custom specs. The shed, however. It was stated in the video that they built it themselves.

I work with John... He probably earns less money than everyone commenting, he hasn't had any money from anybody else to do this and he has done it all himself. It's the only time in most people's lives when you don't have a shit ton of outgoings that you can spend almost every penny you earn making what you want. He doesn't go out nailing 300 broads and snorting half a ton of Charles a night like all the g's getting salty on here claim they did at his age...

@vaso opel What car/engine? I'm wanting to hear my car that I was building some time ago. Still got it, just haven't made progress. Forged 6.3L LS engine with everything done to it and a Garrett GTX4202R turbo hanging off the side. I ripped the sound system out of my car to make it lighter and better in every way. I can easily put a Bluetooth speaker in the car when I want music and then take it out when I want maximum weight reduction.

@MrManBuzz Your comment made me feel a little better about my own predicament tbh. I am a few years younger than this dude and have aspirations of buying a small 90s hatch, stripping it and swapping the powerhouse for a mid-mounted super bike engine. Maybe even a 4WD conversion, and build it for rallying. However, I don’t have the money nor space to make that happen. This guy obviously did. Still though, it’s depressing/painful to dream about something that is so far out of reach…

@hariboproductions Don't feel too bad. I absolutely love what this guy (and his dad) did with this RX7, but clearly he is pretty well off. You don't have the resources to buy and build a car like this without having a fair bit of money. (and don't forget the garage and equipment which isn't cheap either) Don't feel bad thinking you're a failure, I know it's an easy thing to indulge in, but try not to.

Beautiful car man, I have an FD RX7 too. Have had it since 2006 and this is my 2nd one. I put a 20b in it back in 2008, but as of yet, haven't gotten it running correctly. I'm thinking about ditching the 20b and going RB26. I've got an RB30 in my R33 GTR Vspec and still have my old 2.6. Just need an RWD oil pan, and valve covers. 550hp soulful be plenty for the light body FD, and with the torque of the IL6 that should make for an amazing car.
Korylp Prije 2 mjeseci
What a machine! So clean and those front fenders are amazing! Epic owner build and that satisfaction is worth all of the effort. Loved that he said he won't sell it. I see way too many mates and people in the scene who build their entire car and then sell it immediately when it's done. P.s. The slight gap between the front bar and bonnet on the drivers side is driving my OCD mad!!!!! Regardless, props to the owner.

Mad ride and those wheel arches look insane! I was 23 20yrs ago and the only thing I had built by that age was credit card debt!! 😭🤣😂

“What were you doing when you’re 23?” Sitting here watching this video wishing I was capable of building a car full-stop.

@Elijah How long ago was it and how much did you pay for your FD? (I'm assuming it's an FD)
jothain Prije 2 mjeseci
@Elijah hell yeah it's jealousy 😀. At least here, no one in their 20's can buy rx7 in their own wallet. I didn't knew anyone at that age. Except for couple guys and they were driving daddy leases.
Elijah Prije 2 mjeseci
@jothain sounds like jealousy to me mate. I bought my Rx7 aged 20 (which wasn't that long ago) and it was all from my own money.

@jothain Yes, some have the money. But they migh still not have skill to do something like this.

@Labas Labas Hear, hear. Some have the daddy wallet option.

"[JDM] isnt really my bag" proceeds to love it enough to mention it in the title, doesnt stop smiling, and just the face on cold start says everything.

The Rx7 has been top 3 dream cars for a long time. Video games did it to me and HRpost showed me just how bad ass these cars really are

Im not a fan of over the top cars, im more a classic car person and light mods, but men, this looks awesome, if you tell me is a new supercar i can almost believe it. Congratulations to John and company for making that piece of art in wheels 👏

its very nice looking but i've always wondered how these would hold up at autobahn speeds with that home made aero.

This car is something of amazing. Never seen a car quite like that extreme and also not so exagerated, it’s incredibly well balanced. Marvellous car!

Yeh it’s somehow ridiculous but acceptable 🤔. Balanced, as you said. Also the parts he made himself work so good with the bodykit. I’m very very impressed (and slightly jealous).

What an Amazing build and lad and Garage ✌ Question is how fast would that kit handle Top Speed wise genuinely curious
