Hi guys, my name is Daulton and I'm 19 years old and I am about to
purchase my third second-gen aRX-7 and I plan to go solo with it. It's
just a base model S5 GTU but anyone who knows RX-7's knows
they're all fun to drive! I'll be competeing in the ES class and it will be
a year of learning for me. Basically I'm just looking for any tips
people may have for someone like me, and anyone who has done
solo in their FC to say hi!

Just a little background on me: I'm a senior in highschool pursuing a
career in the automotive field. I'm a third year two-hour auto student
(one year in the one hour and two years in two-hour) being taught
by a Master tech and ex-CRX Solo driver. I currently have four NATEF
certifications with another two on the way after I test on them in
April. They don't really help with getting a job but they do help
prepare for the ASE tests that I will eventually take. I will be attending
Lincoln College of Technology for their automotive +associates
program starting July 26 and lasting 58 weeks. Luckily I will have
weekends off to autocross.

My car background has been nothing but second-gen RX-7s. '87
Sport, '88 GXL, and soon to be '89 GTU. I am a huge rotary fanatic
and I don't see myself ever detaching from them. I plan on keeping it
as OEM as possible, only 'upgrades' being saftey items for peace of
mind (mainly cooling system improvements to keep a very keen eye
on those temps. I've lost an engine to overheating before and I
intend on not letting it happen again.)

So all in all this is something I've been wanting to do ever since I've
had my license and now I am realizing my dream. It may only be
solo, but I wish to one day be road racing in just about any series I
can. Grand Am or ALMS would be my top tier dreams.

With all that, I will end this introduction of myself and say that I am
very excited to get started! Like I said any friendly advice or tips b
greatly appreciated for a beginner, and I have read the 'getting
started' helping website (forgot actual name of it) so I kind of know
where I'm going with this but hey any extra help can't hurt.
