Turbosmart Time Attack FC RX-7

,

The bodykit consisting of the front bumper, hood, side skirts and rear diffuser are made by Shine Auto Project.  It is all fiberglass making it very light along with being flexible and having great fitment.

The rear also rocks a set of Advans, Advans, and Project Mu brakes.  Check out the side skirt extensions too which help prevent air from curling under the car; these were made in-house.

 

Also just like the front, the rear consists of Bilstein coilovers and a Whiteline adjustable rear swaybar.  The purple bar is a lateral control link made by Super Now! allowing for extra adjustment to the rear supsension geometry.  Nothing super fancy, but effective.

 

Back to the front end of the car, we can see the underside of the front splitter.  The middle section is the engine bay floor; the intent was to incase the intercooler and radiator to force air through them.  As is often the case, the splitter was added two days before WTAC after some testing showed addiitonal front downforce was required.  There were plans to create a diffuser, but time ran out.

 

The topside of the custom front splitter featuring endplates.  The triangular gussets and middle rib add some needed rigidity.  The two openings below the headlights feed twin Setrab oil coolers.  Remember, heat management is needed for a reliable car!

 

The backside of the car features a diffuser to add to the rear downforce.

 

The ends of the rear diffuser help direct some of the turbulent airflow coming off the rear wheels.
