This drift-tuned version of the FC3S-type RX-7 is the beloved car of pro racing driver Shingo Murao, popularly known as "Gui-Gui Murao." As a road-spec version, the car retains comfort features like air conditioning because it is used for city driving as well. A 7-point rollcage and strut tower brace have been added, but no other body reinforcements or weight reductions have been performed.
The engine is the same as in the normal RX-7, but the stock turbocharger has been swapped out with an HKS T04R. The engine control unit is also the same: an HKS F-CON V Pro full computer. With output at around 394 BHP, the engine is rather powerful for a road-spec vehicle, and also quite peaky with the power band coming after 5000 rpm.
The suspension is a Type RA height-adjustable Tein suspension kit taken directly from the D1-spec competition car. Although the kit was originally designed for circuit racing, the settings are configured for high-level drifting and further tuned to match Murao's own driving style.
The tuning focuses on early front-end turn-in when entering a corner, and the rear end is set up for high grip. Being a drift car is not always about making the tail slide: this vehicle's superior traction allows it to drift fast by exploiting the tread grip. The brakes are Delphi slit rotors and pads, giving the car enough braking force for circuit driving.
Because the base vehicle was a reverse import, the steering wheel is on the left, which draws attention in Japan. The configuration is called "reverse-handle-spec," meaning a drift car with a left-side steering wheel.
