The RX2 is banned from future LeMon Competition.

SO, stage 1 of our newest LeMon Project:  remove your half bridgeported high compression rotary power plant from donor vehicle.

No proper engine hoist?  Don't feel like taking your car off your Uber Hooptie Kustom Car Hauler? 

NO PROBLEMO:

^^^   Kids, that is a bent piece of water pipe and a ratchet strap.   hmm

Ultimately THAT failed.   HARD.   

SO after fucking around with that method for a while, the engine removal was performed with a piece of pipe, and two ̶d̶u̶m̶b̶a̶s̶s̶e̶s̶  team mates:

Oh, the HORROR (or just point and giggle):

Re: TEAM SENSORY ASSAULT brings you THE ULTIMATE LEMON

I begged (and begged) the previous owner of this car to sell it to us for over TWO YEARS.   Eventually, they realized that the car was either destined for the crusher OR could live on as a Future Legend of Lemons

Here it is July 2010:

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a70/ninechaos/DA95BF29-BC0D-474B-9606-B1A3C52A57D7-80814-000004820C317C2F_zps736d9ff6.jpg

The deal was made for everything except the engine.   Not a problem for us - the engine from the RX2 is mostly 13B REW except it is ported and with an NA rotating assembly / rotors.  The engine gets reunited with a 3rd gen RX7 and it would be a crime not to turbocharge it for good measure.

Silly boys.  You had a perfectly good engine hoist right beside the car.

Re: TEAM SENSORY ASSAULT brings you THE ULTIMATE LEMON

It IS a legitimate sub $500 car.   However, received this from Jay regarding our RX2 replacement:

"Re the RX2 replacement, how about I just say "whatever the fuck it is, $499 value." I ain't really worried about you guys sneaking a worldbeater past us.... Best & see you next season, J"

1.   The car is 20 years old.   Why the hate?   big_smile

2.  Its my favorite Mazda - and car ever made.   Really.

3.  One has never been raced in Lemons

4.   She's BEAUTIFUL!

5.  I think I'm in Love all over again.
