Encounter: Garage Kagotani Street-Spec FD

NDF_8396

When self-proclaimed rotary enthusiast, Doctor Wada (an actual doctor by the way), set out to enhance his weekend track car, he wanted to do so without sacrificing the daily drive-ability of the car.  He tasked Garage Kagotani to boost the performance of his RX-7, while still maintaining the comfort inside the cabin.  Without a doubt, this is a very good example of a dual purpose build.  With a simple boost up to about 13 psi, as well as some supporting modifications, he’s able to clock a best time of 59.617 around TC2000.  While future plans to turn this into a dedicated track car are still on the table, I’d say that for the time being that’s an extremely good time.
