Don't forget, the winner of this year's Grassroots Motorsports magazine $2005 challenge was a 5.0 powered FC RX7 built for under $2000 total that ran an 11.6 in the quarter,and was an autocross car... I can imagine what it would be like with an extra $3k able to be invested...

Eeek, thats one serious RX-7 on if I must say so myself. Lowest I've ever ran ran on a stock GSX would be 12.1's. Maybe 11.8's with total weight reduction. A V8 powered RX-7 would be a serious competitor to that of the DSM in the bracket racing arena.

And even those, when they don't run, are considered worthless by rotards, who wouldn't pay more than $500 for a nice one with a dead engine. Hell, even a nice condition, running 10AE won't bring much money, as they are not considered valuable cars. That car could not have been built if rotards hadn't already considered it worthless enough to be aquired cheaply.

Yet again, what bugs me is that rotards think the engine is the only thing of value in the FC, and without it it's "no better" than any other car, and in fact, often consider it worse.
