MAZDA RX-3 JAN 2017

Street Machine - - Your Stuff -

A MAZDA had never won Summernats Grand Cham­pion un­til John Saad’s in­cred­i­ble 1972 RX-3 came along at ’Nats 29. Chris at CS En­gi­neer­ing played a huge part in the en­gi­neer­ing, fab­ri­ca­tion and assem­bly of FATRX3, while en­gine-wise, John kept things sen­si­ble, as the Mazda was al­ways go­ing to be a driver. He went for a tur­bocharged 13B Cosmo ro­tary donk, which makes 400rwhp. FATRX3 is loaded with high-end hot rod­ding and street ma­chine in­flu­ences, with an immaculate in­te­rior to boot. “I wanted it to change peo­ple’s per­cep­tions of what a ro­tor should look like,” John says. Mis­sion ac­com­plished!
