Congratulations on the milestone Moti.

You have no excuse not to have the car running before the year is out. ;)

Hello Moti,

Would you mind telling me what you did to the miata upright to allow it to take the RX7 outer balljoint in that orientation?

Also how did you narrow the rack part of the steering system?

Thank you,
Jules

Bringing this back to life. Just read all 38 pages to come to an ending.... I really hope the car was finished. Such a beautiful and amazing build. I'm now seriously thinking about going R1 BEC...

I always loved this build, I would also love to hear what became of it.

A little light Facebook stalking and Googling shows that Moti seems to be racing a highly modified NB car and custom fabricating roll cages. Which, hey, sounds great to me! Way to go!
