Once we had heard that Matt had the RX7 drivetrain back together and ready for the Private Track Hire we knew that it was a 7 second ET in the crosshairs….
As shown in the full feature video we did previously, what an awesome bit of kit this car is. The simple cut back look of this car coupled with those weld wheels, the stunning Black Cherry Mica paint and that ride height give this car a stance like no other we’ve seen. You have to check this car out in person if you get the opportunity!!
There were no parts carnage this time out, so jump in and check out the days action and watch Matt finally get that magic PB he has been chasing!
