    Cool Just a mention to say hi to everyone and be good to see you at car meets

    Well this is my first message so here goes. My name is Mark Hatchard, But please call me HATCH

    I am a Rx7 fd fanatic and getting my ready to have some fun this year on many racetracks and would love to attend meets with other like minded people. I love all jap cars so would be cool to see some skylines and scoobys etc and will be good for me to belong to a car club. I have booked track time at Japfest, summer evenings at brands hatch and sessions at Silverstone on the 6th of september and more will be booked throughout the year. Would love to meet up with others if doing trackdays from this club and also attend meets when possible.

    My car is a 93 White RX7 FD3S here are the specs

    Street ported engine twin turbo Built by TIM at RX motors now based in Salisbury Car has done about 3-4 thousand miles in last year maybe less

    Apexi FC but not tuned as yet but should be good for 300+ after tune nearly 400

    Uprated radiator and pipes etc

    Air Con removal

    HUGE 4.5 DECAT system CAR very loud over 100 DB 105+ I hope no more

    Modified shift light changer

    Modified black bonnet huge vents and gaps (Dragon Performance)

    Alpine Double DIN stereo

    HKS dump valve (have a BLITZ dump valve as (SPARE) not used).

    Right light cover modified

    Japanese split rims need refurbish paint falling off a little.


    UPGRADES in near future

    BEE R REV limiter
    ROTA GRID DRIFT ALLOYS 18 inch Gun metal, white or silver

    Hi Hatch welcome aboard

    All ways had a soft spot for the RX7 nice read but where are the pics

    Good to see you are intending to do track-days have you got another exhaust system? If not you will struggle to get on track.

    Hi Mike good to meet you, I will upload pics when I have some good ones just messed about with my Go-Pro cam etc. I do have the original Cat for the exhaust I used it for the MOT then changed it back sounds much better but I am aware about the track days and have a bung if I can fit the silly thing it may make a bit of difference. But I would prefer 105 db track days I might just get away with that, otherwise think you are spot on right!!

    HATCH

    Thankyou yep will do when I can make some organised meets etc, OH I was just wondering if your taking the club to Japfest I have booked track time but not bought ticket yet rather go with club if possible, because I would rather be involved incase my car too loud for Castle Combe etc
