For suspension, SP has elected to run HKS Drag coilovers specially imported for the project. This suspension set-up hints that the car will be expected to do a lot more than look pretty-quarter-mile blasts are in its future. Racing Beat sway bars and RE Amemiya tie rods and A-arms round out the undercarriage mods. Rolling stock consists of Blitz Technospeed aluminum and Yokohama AVS Sport rubber. Up front, 18x8.5 rims are joined by 235/ZR40-18 tires while the rear is fitted with an 18x10.5 and 285/ZR35-18 combination. Before running out and going this fat on wheels and tires for your RX-7, remember, this baby is flared.
This is just the foundation for insanity. How much power will this thing make? In Part 2 of "Hellbent Hybrid," we will detail the tuning portion of the project and bring you the rest of this epic street car saga.
