FEED RX-7 (Fujita Engineering FD3S)
Established on 1982, Fujita Engineering (or FEED) is now a 30-year old
company. Yet, their passion for rotary motorsports is as hot as ever. The
FD3S in this video was their new shop-car, built to become "the fastest
As a matter of fact, this car has already proven to be the fastest. On
December 2011, it won the class championship of the country's hottest
time-attack event "Tsukuba Super Battle".
3 months later, on March 2012 when this video was shot, once again Fujita
Engineering was at Tsukuba Circuit to verify what they had been developing
throughout the winter was correct. Under fine weather, brand new Advan
tires, and having the right driver, the car marked 57.511 sec at the attack
at end of the day - beating their own Super Battle record by 0.5 sec.
Looks like Fujita Engineering RX-7 is going to win the time-attack again

Honda Tests NSX-GT FR Hybrid
What a surprise... Nobody, and even none of the auto media could see this
coming. At a regular "Super GT Test Day" held at TwinRing Motegi on
October 2010, Honda NSX-GT suddenly showed up with no official
announcement. Honda already has HSV for Super GT. Why now NSX-GT?
The vehicle has the looking of NSX-GT, but what lies under the body kit is
a "FR" vehicle. The exact same car was previously spotted just once on
2007 when it was announced that Super GT regulation would change from 2009
and only "3.4L FR" race cars will be allowed. NSX-GT being a "3.5L
mid-ship", it was apparent that the new regulation was designed to shut out
NSX-GT from Super GT. Honda needed to make a tough decision at that time
whether to make a FR version of NSX-GT, or stop racing. The car spotted on
2007 was a result of Honda's ultimate struggle - its hood awkwardly
stretched to store engine in front, sticking Exhaust pipes from the side instead of rear, and
roof-top air intake became useless and had scaled down.
Eventually, Honda managed to survive in racing in Super GT by developing a
new 3.4L FR vehicle, HSV-010 GT on 2010. And what had happened to that "FR
NSX-GT"? There was no doubt of it being scrapped and gone forever, after
all it became a useless prototype race car. The set-up probably did not go
well, and above all, who would like to see a FR NSX?
[NSX-GT with KERS]
But it turned out that "FR NSX-GT" was still alive, secretly stored inside
the garage of Honda R&D team for 3 years. This time, it was chosen for the
vehicle to officially test KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems) which
might be used for 2012 Super GT or later. To reduce development cost of
KERS, Honda volunteered to provide the car and gather data for all race
entrants, and Lexus and Nissan approved it. "FR NSX-GT" was an ideal test
car for all 3 car makers. The car was basically designed to race in Super
GT, but Honda did not develop it till the end and had never used in races,
thus lack of racing data. This was fair deal for Lexus and Nissan because
Honda testing KERS will not bring advantage to HSV.
So many people and media asked the GT Association (management organization
of Super GT) the specification of this "NSX-GT Hybrid", and later an
official announcement was made.
KERS provided for testing purpose for Super GT vehicle is manufactured by
Zytek, the same KERS supplier for F1. It can be used to Boost the car for maximum of 20 seconds to
overtake others, and can be fully recharged after 1 single lap. It is 40kw
strong and is powerful enough to drive cars solely on electric motor on
places such as pit lanes. The KERS itself weigh 50kg.
According to GT Association, the very first test drive of NSX-GT Hybrid was
done a month ago, and this was the first time to seriously test its
potential on race tracks. Test driver of "NSX-GT Hybrid" was Katsutomo
Kaneishi who was a Honda test driver in days of NSX-GT, and currently a
director of Real Racing Team with KEIHIN HSV-010. His best lap of the day
was 1.49"468 at TwinRing Motegi, only 4.453 seconds slower than the fastest
lap of the day by Lexus ENEOS SC430.
There should be tons of more tests coming, but so far it seems possible
KERS might be used at Super GT in the near future.

What its like owning a 3 Rotor 20B RX-7
I have one of the most amazing custom RX-7s in the world. I want to share
my experience of owning and driving such a unique car.
I explain where the engine came from, why its so special, and what it does
to a Mazda RX-7
RE Amemiya 20B FD RX-7. Fuji Speedway test for Yokohama World Time Attack 2012
Hear the sweet sound of the 20B RE Amemiya rotary at idle, at full noise
down the straight and in-car. Awesome. This was one of RE Amemiya's last
test sessions before their rebuilt RX-7 was put on a boat to Australia to
compete in the ADVAN Pro Class at Yokohama World Time Attack. Hear what NOB
Taniguchi thinks of the car's handling.
See this car compete against Australian, New Zealand, American, British and
Japanese rivals on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August 2012 at Sydney

The Zero F**ks Given RX7 - /TUNED
Would you drive a car built by a teenager in his parents driveway with no
safety features whatsoever? We did, and now we'll tell you why this ugly
RX7 is so brilliant.
RE Amemiya Super Greddy 7 RE20B RX-7 FD3S
This RE Amemiya Super Greddy 7 RE20B was built for the annual Tokyo Auto
Salon. This exquisite machine is packed with RE Amemiya's tuning knowledge
and is setup for the street.
The intent of the vehicle is of course, running the Wangan highway. The
machine was designed to easily reach high speeds and provide unmatched
stability at 300km/h. This makes 300km/h seem like leisurely cruise.
The three rotor 20B engine was removed from a Mazda Cosmo. It is fairly
easy for RE Amemiya to build a 300km/h engine, and it can be done with a
13B. Then why choose a 20B? The 13B is notoriously known to have a short
life span, especially after it has been modified. Also, it lacks the low
end torque, and it does not hold the power to leisurely reach, and cruise
at 300km/h like the 20B.
Therefore, the 20B was chosen, and the low end torque demise was solved.
But even though it's a rotary engine, doesn't mean that it is a easy swap.
The weight distribution of the well balanced FD becomes thrown off. The 20B
had to be offset 10cm to the rear and 6cm to the front in reference to the
13B. Also, the body, subframe, and the propeller shaft all need
The exterior was dressed up with the RE Amemiya 2006 model Aero kit. It
consists of a Porsche 997 front headlights, and the rotary themed rear
bumper. The sides consist of super wide fenders to accentuate the whole
The vehicle was completed just in time for the first ever Pre Tokyo Auto
Salon event held in the United States. The vehicle then will be shipped off
in time for the real 2006 Tokyo Auto Salon event in Tokyo.
