Striker owner in Yeovil

Postby rotors7 » Mon Dec 07, 2015 11:28 am

Hello to you all :)

I built my Striker in 98, I think I've only done a few thousand miles since then though and it rarely sees tarmac.
It's got a 13b bridgeported rotary engine with loads of mod's and goes rather well.

I'd love to update some of the car, aesthetic reasons mainly, but time's never on my side so it doesn't get done !

Cheers.

There's a Stylus on this forum that runs a twin supercharged Rotary and that is awesomely quick (I built cds rodend wishbones for it --- the ones on it were bending --- pretty scary :o I've still got them in my shed ;) )

I'd love to see a picture of the wishbones :)

I think I've seen some info on the chap with the Stylus, it's got a fair bit of horse power !

Cheers :D

Hi, I am not far from you in Taunton. I used to have a blade engine striker and now have a fury with a Z20LET.

I have always liked the idea of a Rotary engine in a striker so would love to see the car sometime.

Yes, that sounds good, I'm in the process of doing a few bits and pieces on it so it's not roadworthy.
I might get a shift on for the upcoming scorching hot summer.... 8-)

It's been quite a while since I've had a spin in the car but here's some photo's of it prior to being laid up.

The quality's not so great but you get the drift.
For a while I was running a back box too, it was wrapped and tucked nicely under the rear of the boot but the link pipe grounded too often to be truly practical.
I started fitting an electric water pump, but got side tracked and now the car's covered in Rx7 parts for another project :(
