Seems like those gauges in the triple pod point down quite a bit. Are they still easy to see?

What are your thoughts on the product quality from EVO-R? I've been eyeballing their FC3S headlight kit for a while but I haven't found any images of it installed anywhere and searches always seem to turn out information about questionable fitment and quality.

There quality is great! Whoever they have doing these work is doing great. I just bought a pair of CF door panels and quality is top notch!

Some 3 Rotor update.

Had the new manifold made by Addicted Performance Unlimited using 321 Stainless. Addicted Performance was recently featured by TV show Gas Monkey and does amazing job! They also sponsor my rotary event called, 'Deals Gap Rotary Rally'.
Check out their site: http://addictedperformanceunlimited.com/

Custom 3 Rotor Flange.

Thanks for the review. Hopefully their FC products are on par, quality-wise, with their FD products. I'm seriously considering their fixed headlight setup once I get the FC running. Everything on that car is geared toward simplicity and lightness.

I hope so too for FC parts. I don't want you to blame me if they aren't ;)
But so far all their product have been top notch. I'll post my new door panels maybe next week.

I had a chance to work on my 1994 SSM FD RX-7. It had a small coolant leak somewhere so replaced and tighten some hoses to the turbos and such.

And decided to put on my Mazdaspeed MS01-Mag wheels on.

Here are couple of pics of the car.
