Driving 48 States in Two Mazda FD RX7s - Episode 1


Our most ambitious trip to date. We drove our two Mazda FD RX7's to all 48 continental states in the US. We thought about driving to Alaska and Hawaii as well, but it turns out it cost $7,000 and two weeks to ship cars to Hawaii, so that's just not rational. but driving all 48 continental states on the other hand...

    The most unreliable? RX-7s are wasted on ignorant drivers who are too lazy to take the time to understand rotaries. There is a reason rotaries are banned from Le Mans - piston engines can't beat them for reliability. FD twin turbos aren't pre-soccer mom NA FBs you can just gas and go. If pre-mixing or checking the oil is too much for you, go buy a Civic or Yaris, you'll be happier and so will somebody who can appreciate an RX-7. Rotaries are far more reliable than piston engines. However, rotaries are less tolerant of abuse and their failures are usually catastrophic (require a rebuild). Mean time between failures for almost any piston engine will be much, much lower than a rotary, but their failures are only rarely catastrophic (repairs don't usually require a full rebuild). For example, most piston engines over-heated are more likely to remain functional, without requiring a rebuild. Don't try that in a rotary. Lots of proprietary generators and pumps use rotary motor designs precisely because they are incredibly reliable with a very predictable service life. As for the K swapped thing, it might be an FD body, but it's no RX-7. Why would you take a fine car, throw out the core element around which everything else was designed, and think you could still expect to have the good handling of what no longer has 50/50 weight distribution? That's a waste of a good RX-7, a waste of a good engine in any other body, and is very revealing about just how much of a "car person" the owner was in reality. There are some great handling, sleek, attractive cars out there that already come equipped with excellent piston engines. So, why mutilate a rotary into something it isn't? Are you going to convert your GT-R into a boat towing rig? Swap it for a diesel? Maybe convert your Dodge Charger into a pickup by cutting off the back part of the roof? You're taking 25-27 year old cars with unknown maintenance histories, one highly modified by God knows whom, on a lengthy road trip. Given the profile of the average original buyer, the cars were probably ridden hard and put away wet when they were new. What were you expecting? You think a '93 Plymouth Colt or '93 For Tempo wouldn't give you trouble on such a journey? The difficulty with yucks like you and regular car reviews is you have broad automotive knowledge, but you think depth of knowledge in one narrow area means you also have depth of knowledge in other areas. Worse, you're too lazy to do real research or seek out people with some expertise. You read Wikipedia, some crap reviews, and maybe a couple of posts from a forum and think you know everything necessary. Maybe stick with something you know, or at least bring on somebody who actually does have some experience and expertise in the area you're going to discuss.

Thankfully there's not too many left on that list because I've been fortunate enough to own quite a few of them over the years, albeit most were temporary.
