Project V8 RX-7: Part 14 – Going Wide with Rocket Bunny's new FD3S Widebody Aero Kit
If you follow us on our Instagram or Facebook page (and if you don’t why the F not? seriously, click up there on the top right of the page and connect!) you know we received one of the first batch of FD RX-7 Rocket Bunny kits from TRA Kyoto to come into the states! If this seems out of character for us, it is—never in our history have we put a bodykit on one of our project cars—and for good reason, most of them look terrible, are molded poorly and are difficult to install. Depending on the vehicle, decent looking quality kits are increasingly difficult to find unless you buy a knock-off version which as you know we aren’t big fans of here.
The Rocket Bunny kit is different though, from the first rendering we were teased with last year it looked refreshing and bad ass! Some argue it looks a little NASCARy or Lightning McQueen from the renderings but we like the look—more fodder to enrage the rotard troglodytes who insist we’re ruining this classic piece of Japanese automotive nostalgia! More importantly though the 100mm wider rear overfenders and 50mm fronts will allow us to stick some serious rubber under there!
We picked our new Rocket Bunny kit up at the GReddy headquarters in Irvine, Calfiornia. GReddy is the official U.S. distributor of TRA Kyoto Rocket Bunny stuff. Just a bit of company background so you don't get confused with all the names, TRA Kyoto and Kei Miura, the eclectic Japanese dude behind it all have been around for over 20 years primarily producing aero parts for other companies. Rocket Bunny kits are his own in-house designs. Crankandpistion.com did a pretty cool video of the history of the company and Miura HERE if you're interested in learning more!
