REPU section/reunion at SevenStock5

With SevenStock a few months off, we should start to plan a little meet and greet at the event. I propose meeting at 1:00 pm, in the old school section of the event (where the REPU's should be parked)

We can take formally meet one another, take pics for this forum, exchange stuff (ideas, goods, etc...) and talk about what a blast we will be having at SevenStock already!

If this sounds good, reply to this thread. I'll try to get a section for REPU's only at SevenStock.

Here is the SevenStock Website. For those of you who might not know that it is the largest gathering of rotary powered vehicles anywhere on the planet. A very cool and do not miss event!!

I wonder what shipping would be to load one on a truck, fly out and meet up with it again in Cali?

I wish 7 stock moved around?

Speaking of shipping a REPU...

...the buyer of my blue '74 still needs a cost-effective option to get it to Michigan from western Oregon... perhaps there are enough rotary enthusiasts buying/selling/travelling/trading vehicles around sevenstock to facilitate hiring a carhauler to take a trip...??? If anyone knows of one, or has any good ideas... it's gotta be cheaper to fill a semi trailer than by the individual car/repu! Now how long would it take to circle the nation...?

Transporters

There are transport service website out there... but all of them ask you to submit information before they give you a quote! I don't know how much it would be to transport a REPU to and from SevenStock5.

Let me see if I can do some digging....

I think if I go I will probably take my 7. I love my REPU and all but it just isn't the nicest thing to drive for 5 hours, especially with no radio or A/C and the 5000 RPMs it takes to go 85 on the highway. I had enough of that when I drove it home from Colorado. Not to mention the narrowly avoided engine fire and backfire that scared the crap out of the gas station attendent on that trip :) I guess I have fixed those last 2 issues that could actually be dangerous.

Oh come on Tom, pack you a few changes of underware and we'll pick you up at your mailbox on the way out. We'll even rotate who gets to ride in the cab.

Bring a hat.You may need it.

You know, actually I was thinking about it again this morning. I might actually take it if I am able to find a spare wheel and the mounting assembly to hold it up. Aybody have that in their spare parts pile?

Vegas will represent!

three of us are renting a (3) car hauler to transport our cars from Vegas to SevenStock. I'll be driving my FD there too. Hopefully I'll have the T2 conversion complete in the REPU, and a new paint job on the FD in time for the show.

If others in your area are going, you might ask around to see if you can get a car hauler. Put your REPU on the hauler and drive the FD to Irvine.

Just a thought

"...just nod if you can hear me..."

...actually, I'm 'out there' quite a bit, depending on whose opinion you might ask! (Just not back East, I'm afraid...) Spare wheel: certainly! Will you be needing a tire with that today as well, sir? What size might you require? Spare mounting hardware assembly: maybe, just maybe... but why mess with putting it under there? It's a truck; toss it in the bed! At least that way you can position the weight further forward should you desire...
The NW MUST be representing as well...? Anyone passing thru Eugene on I-5 south got a passenger seat and wanna share gas/hotel costs? My REPU's simply not worthy... tho I don't recall turning 5000rpm at 85... what trans. you running, Tom?

Ooh, you have a spare wheel? Tire or not I don't care, I can easily find a cheap tire to buy. The reason I can't just throw the tire in the bed is in my neighborhood people will take anything that isn't nailed down. I run pre-mix in my REPU and a couple weeks ago somebody stole my 1/2 empty bottle of 2-stroke oil out of the bed. Now I have to keep it in the cab under the seat. It is pathetic really! As for size, something of a 14" diameter. Right now I have some 14" x 7.5" (maybe even 8") wheels, anything close would be acceptable to me.

As for 5000 rpm at 75mph, I have the 4-speed tranny with 195/60R14 tires, that puts my speedo off by about 10%. I have to get it up to about 83 before I really am doing 75. It may not really be 5k rom, it is probably closer to 4500 but still quite high.

Maybe I will even have a header by that time! Hmm, or maybe I should work on the body and interior first...

(Sorry Guru; just me again...)

Tom--
No offense, but I'm truly amazed that a spare wheel seems to be such a score for you, especially since you're not running stock rims... seems to me there's a ton of 14x6 to 14x8 6-bolt versions still out there. In any case, I do have one "extra" old stock REPU rim, (junk foam-filled baldie still mounted), as well as a slightly wider (6"?) stock courier wheel that's in nicer shape, no tire on it. 8" is wide enough it'll definitely protrude from the sides... I'm pretty happy with running 205/60 15's on a 7" width... that would help with your cruising rpm's and speedo deficit too!
Sorry to hear about your neighborhood... a few years back I lived in a "problem" area; came to the conclusion my peace of mind was priceless, compared to the minor savings on rent...

Well I finally got me a spare, I just need to check it out and make sure it actually fits. Got a wheel at Discount Tire but haven't verifyed it yet, hopefully they got the right one. I also got some taller tires, now I am riding on 195/75 R 14 and they are just a bit too big. I get some good rubbing when I crank the wheel but they are alot better for highway driving and don't seem to track the ruts in the road as much. One step closer to driving the REPU to sevenstock! Now if I could just find the hardware to mount my spare up under the bed...

So has anybody decided they are taking their REPU's to sevenstock? I have my hotel room, time off from work and everything. Just have a few things I need to get done on it before I commit to driving the REPU. As it stands I am about 90% committed to driving the REPU the 400 miles each way to Irvine. speaking of long drives in the REPU, anybody have a recommendation for a cheap radio that will actually fit withough any modifications to the dash?

i sold a radio that would fit earlier this year for $20 on partstrader.com. My '80 Rx7 had one of those mini chassis radios in it. it was the same size as the original opening on my REPU. My REPU console is already butchered, and the Rx7 is gonna be a racer, so i didn't need it. The guy i sold it to was putting it in a mazda b1800 if i recall correctly, so they must have the same size radio. In the short time left, probably best option is a little boom-box and a 12v adapter.

Hupefully, Some of us Vegas guys will be trailering our some cars down, the REPU, RX2, and maybe a RX4...

If the trailer doesn't work out, I may get a trailer and tow my 3rd gen with the REPU down ;)
