Rotary Performance FD Differential Brace

Posted by Matthew Schroeder on

New FD product available soon! Got a serious race car that had broken a differential case? Afraid of the day it will happen? We've been asked about them and they are now being made available to you!

Project: 50,000 mile 1983 RX-7

Posted by Matthew Schroeder on

We've been entrusted to work on a first time customer's 49k mile 1983 RX-7. I have a soft spot for the FB RX-7. I've had five since I was in High School.
