Is there anyone besides myself that admire the 3rd gen TT? How could you not enjoy 0-60 in 4.9 sec, light, nimble and able to out corner almost any production car then and now. :nuts:

For those that don't regularly absorb RX-7 info.... what exactly is a 3rd gen TT? Any pics... or factory specs?

0-60 in 4.9 makes for some fun stop-light racing.:thumbsup:

I imagine it's the last iteration of the RX-7 with a twin turbo set up.
I've always like those 3rd gen cars. Too bad they're not available anymore. Also, I've often thought they took some design cues from the C2.

Todd we must have been typing at exactly the same time! Thanks, I had a feeling the STOCK C5 would still be able to take the RX-7 :thumbsup:

ZR_Don from here is turning 12.60's in his stock 1990 ZR1 (385HP)

I turned 12.7x's in my bone stock 96 LT4 car, at least 50 times I turned somewhere in the 12's. On a hot or sticky night, 13.0-13.5....

I've seen many stock C5's hitting high 12's when they ditch the run flat tires. Those things suck!!!

There are several stock 405HP Z06's running high-11's with a ET drag slicks. Tons of folks are running 12.0-12.4 on street tires.

:thumbsup:

There was a guy up at "the grove" running inconsistent times (he said it was normal for that truck). On the same night, his worst time was 13.6, his best time was 12.65. Frickin crazy! That thing launched like a frog!:thumbsup:
