This book offers explanations of how things work as well as the story behind the development of the 3rd gen. And the pictures of everything taken apart...kinda makes me want to take mine apart. :) I bought my copy directly from Mazda America in Irvine, CA but you can also get it from Classic Motorbooks.

Just been looking through some of my Rx-7 material and I am again very impressed with the "Sports Car colour history; Mazda Rx7" by John Matras. This book traces the history of the Rotary, and even covers Citroens, Chevy Monza`s that ran with Rotarys. What it does especially well, is to profile each model Rx-7 as introduced into the US market. Its 128 pages, mostly color and is almost exclusively on Mazdas rotary history, with as I say a few relevant references to others who where in the Rotary club during the early days of the engines development.

ISBN: 0 87938 938 9, and I think you can order it through Motorbooks international in Osceola, WI. (I bought mine in Worcester, England!)

It's different ot the Yamaguchi Books, and is in some ways better, as they tended to concentrate on the 2nd and 3rd gen introductions, where as this book goes into great detail on the model changes during the 1st and 2nd gens production. Highly recommended to all Mazda Rotary fans.

The training manual is different to the workshop manual. It's used to train mazda mechanics about the 3rd gen and includes details of how the turbos work etc.

Felix Wankel sent me this - I haven't seen it so aren't sure if it's what I'm after (but it seems like it would be):

"Mazda RX-7 1993 Service Highlights". Part #9999-95-045F-??

Where the "?" indicates the two-digit year.

From: "David Lane"

Corky Bell has been in the aftermarket turbo business since 1977 when he opened CarTech in Dallas Texas (currently in San Antonio). Ten years later, a 42 year-old guy with a newish '85 GSL-SE and a bad case of mid-life crisis (yours truly) gave him a call inquiring about a turbo kit for the car. He sent me a set of instructions so I could get a feel for the difficulty of the job. After looking them over, I called back and said that the instructions seemed straight-forward and complete. Corky replied that I probably wouldn't feel that way once I got into the project. He was right. The instructions were written for people with a little more mechanical experience than I possessed at the time, and I needed help with some basic concepts like how to reference left and right, and how to identify NPT fittings. By the time it was over, and I had generated $100.00 in phone bills to Texas, I learned that Corky and his associates were people of near-infinite patience. In fact, the interactions with Corky were one of the high points of the project.

Corky is like that. He is a hero of mine. But unlike other heroes like Pamela Anderson and Johnny Carson (people whose outstanding attributes are out of reach), Corky is accessible when I am trying to trouble-shoot a problem, or simply want to know what is hot in the aftermarket turbo business.

The instructions for the kit came with a document called "The Same Old 20 Questions" in which Corky gave straight forward answers to the things he was asked most. It may be a sign of the times, but the more recent versions of that document contain well over seventy questions and answers. "Maximum Boost" is a logical expansion of the same approach. The subtitle is "Designing, Testing and Installing Turbocharger Systems."

I first heard that Corky was working on a book several years ago, and knowing Corky's technical background--Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering, and 12 years with Bell Helicopter (no relation)--I wondered if the book would be of any value to someone like me who went to a music conservatory and worked for 12 years as a high school band director. I sure didn't want to wade through a thermodynamics text, and any math beyond the most basic algebra makes me twitch. It is a dilemma for any writer. The question is: Who is your target audience? Is it the person looking to upgrade a stock turbo system? Is it the guy who wants to create a VW dragster from scratch? Maybe it's the lady who is confused by a bunch of conflicting claims for turbo and supercharger Miata kits?

Fortunately, Corky takes a multi-level approach to almost every subject. Going through the book, you will find general, plain English discussions. Just about the time you wonder if you really understand, a drawing or illustration clarifies what he is trying to say. He does not shy away from math, but it is not hard to follow the formulas. Besides, if you start to twitch, you are usually near a chart which will get you in the ball park for the answer. So, for instance, if you want to calculate the airflow rate of an engine (something you need to do to determine the size of the compressor) Corky takes you through the formula: Airflow Rate equals (cubic inch displacement, times revolutions per minute, times .5, times volumetric efficiency) divided by 1728. Too complex? Okay, that means that a 302 Ford V-8 at 5500 rpm flows 408 cubic feet of air per minute. Hmm. So, what does that do for me if I have a Honda? Well, there is a graph from which I can pick my displacement and rpm, and get close to the flow rate for any four stroke engine.

The bad news for us rotary types is that there is hardly anything in the book specifically aimed at rotaries. However, all the principles are the same, and while the discussions are aimed at the piston crowd, the tips and suggestions are general in nature and thus valid for any engine. Another slight mis-match is that Corky does not emphasize twin turbo systems in the book. This makes sense because of the complexity of such installations, combined with the very small group of people who would actually try to fabricate such a system.

The multi-level approach extends to all aspects of the book. Each chapter starts with a general discussion which will be enlightening for those who have a curiosity about the subject at hand. This is followed by a simplified version of the engineering elements for those who need to make calculations and are seriously involved in a project. The end of each chapter contains the relevant questions and answers without any technical talk. Interspersed in all this are "Rules" which are usually in-your-face statements to sum things up.

The chapter on intercoolers, for instance, starts with a general discussion of what they do and how they function, followed by very detailed information on how they are designed and built. This section is 23 pages of text and illustrations, including technical information on heat transfer area, internal flow area, internal volume, calculating power losses and flow losses, calculating efficiency, choosing types (air/air or air/water) and design/construction considerations for each. He even goes into tube sizes, bends, connecting hoses, water injection, and of course, placement. The chapter summary (in question and answer format) gets back to the non-technical basics with about 3 pages of: What is an intercooler, and why is it of merit? What configurations do intercoolers come in? What is water injection, and when it needed?

Interspersed in the chapter are the "Rules," including:

"RULE: It is absolutely incorrect to think that 'any intercooler is better than no intercooler'"

"RULE: The single most important aspect of intercooler design is low internal pressure loss."

"RULE: When viewing intercooler designs, regard thick core layouts as less than well thought out"

"RULE: A water injector on a turbo car is a poor-excuse band-aid for not doing the job correctly the first time"

Needless to say, there are chapters on everything from Intake manifolds to exhaust systems, including a chapter on trouble shooting, and another with a look at the cutting edge of turbo design--Corky's take on the most likely future developments. Variable Area Turbine Nozzles (VATN) turbos may be the hot ticket before long. Air bearings for the turbo are unlikely, but ball bearings may come into play.

In an effort to put all this information into a practical setting, Corky takes you--step by step--through the design, installation and testing of a turbo system on an Acura NSX. This is where the theory meets the manifold, so to speak, and provides a template for those who want to start from scratch. While racing applications are sometimes used as examples, this book is clearly aimed at those interested in streetable machinery. As such, the NSX gains 122 bhp (to 390), drops a second from its average 0-60 time (to 4.7 sec), and gets through the quarter mile one second faster (13.0) and 10 mph faster (111 mph). This is with pump gas, and all emissions equipment (including cats) in place. The system operates at about 5 psi, with the stock engine internals and fuel injection, aided by a boost dependent fuel pressure regulator.

The last chapter is on installing a turbo kit--which, though it is not mentioned by name, looks like an illustrated version of the instructions for the CarTech Aerocharger Miata kit. If this is the case, Corky has come a long way in clarifying his instructions. It made me want to buy a Miata just for the fun of installing another kit. While I was tempted to gloss over this chapter, it served as a reminder of how much work goes into designing a good kit, leaving the shade tree mechanic with only some hopefully pleasant mechanical work to do in order to create a relatively unique vehicle.

"Maximum" boost hits its mark squarely. There is valuable information here for anyone who looks at a turbo system and wants to know more. It has been observed that the search for answers will most likely result in more questions, and "Maximum Boost" will take you wherever you want to go in that process--even if you don't know what questions to ask. The discussion goes from the vary basics (don't reuse lock washers) to the intricacies of A/R Ratios.

Finally, the book stays relevant to the real world of cars in the '90s--dealing with smog control, approval by state agencies, and even marketing concerns. One of my favorite sections deals with the design objectives of Porsche and Nissan, comparing the 1988 911 Turbo and the 300ZX Turbo--two engines of similar size, weight and displacement. Corky notes that Porsche, with an air cooled engine (not very heat tolerant) went with a large turbo, accepting some "turbo lag" in favor of creating a powerful automobile. Nissan, with a much more heat tolerant (water cooled) engine, went with a small turbo for quick off-idle response. Nissan didn't even include an intercooler in the system. Corky concludes that the companies had different buyers in mind, and that Nissan intentionally engineered a "0-30 mph performance car" to satisfy their intended market. Corky continues:

"Although the Porsche has been proclaimed by all its road testers the prime example of a high turbo-lag design, it had to be that way because of the low heat allowables. A small turbo could not have been used on the 911 because of the thermal restrictions of the air-cooled engine, and certainly not when serious power is an objective. Porsche, therefore, should be credited with doing a fine job. Nissan should be credited with selling a large number of cars to a large number of people.

RULE: Never send a child to do an adult's job."

Those of us with rotary turbos (stock, modified, or aftermarket) sometimes make costly mistakes by taking an unbalanced approach to modifying our cars ("I'll open up the exhaust and intake this year, and then deal with increasing the available fuel next year"). Corky's book, besides being generally fun and informative, provides all the answers you need to avoid disaster. But more than answers, it clearly outlines the questions you should be asking.

> I also came across  Secrets of Solo Racing :
> Expert Techniques for Autocrossing and Time Trials, by Henry A Watts, has
> anybody read this book?

Yes, I have it...good Autox 101 material.

Here are some more as pilfered from the AUTOCROSS.COM site:

Secrets of Solo Racing
by Henry A. Watts
Loki Publishing Company, 1989
ISBN #0-9620573-1-2
This is, bar none, the best book available for
beginning autocrossers. Most of the other books on
this list were written with road racing in mind and
are best taken with some perspective by the reader who
wants to autocross; this is the only "no experience
required" book on this list. Highly recommended.

Winning Autocross Solo II Competition
Dick Turner and J.B. Miles
ISBN #0-932522-01-7
The other major autocross-centric book on the market.
It is still available but not as easy to find as Watts
is, possibly because it hasn't been picked up by a
major publisher. If Watts is Autocrossing 101, this
is 102; it concentrates solely on the driving
component of autocross and gets quite specific on
that. You don't have to have a physics education to
understand this book but it helps a lot. Much of the
material simply is not covered anywhere else that I
have seen. I like to come back to this book whenever
I think I have plateaued, because it challenges my
perception in a different way every time.

Going Faster!
by Carl Lopez et al.
Robert Bentley Publishers, 1997
ISBN #0-8376-0227-0
This is the best recent book on driving technique I've
seen. It is based on interviews with Skip Barber and
nine of the instructors in his racing school. Much
larger and more expensive than the Watts book, it has
marvelously complete sections on basic car control,
lines, car setup, and strategy. The wheel-to-wheel
sections won't be relevant to all autocrossers but are
still interesting. If I took one car book to a desert
island (assuming there was a track there) this would
probably be it.

The Racing Driver
by Denis Jenkinson
Reissued 1997 Robert Bentley Publishers
ISBN #0-8376-0201-7
This is the first and still definitive analysis of the
psychological makeup of the Grand Prix driver.
Jenkinson's explanation of what top drivers do and why
is as applicable to autocrossing as to Formula 1. The
book also contains fascinating discussion of the
handling characteristics of various cars of the day
(1950's) and how their drivers exploited them. Along
with the technical discussions, Jenkinson recounts his
days as a racing passenger, first for motorcycle racer
Eric Oliver and then for Mille Miglia winner Stirling

The Technique of Motor Racing
by Piero Taruffi
11th printing 1991 Robert Bentley Publishers
ISBN #0-8376-0228-9
The classic textbook on race car driving. All the
advice contained on driving position, controls,
cornering lines, etc. is as valid today as when it was
first published in 1959. Taruffi trained as an
industrial engineer and the book has a definite
mathematical emphasis to it, with formulas presented
for taking any kind of corner you'll find. You're not
likely to think in such terms on the track of course,
but examining Taruffi's methods can give you a better
understanding of the "right" line. The book was
translated from Italian, and its English is therefore
idiomatic, but it's not bad once you get used to it.
Definitely advanced reading but rewards careful study.

Sports Car and Competition Driving
by Paul Frere
Robert Bentley Publishers, 1992
ISBN #0-8376-0202-5
Paul Frere is another famed engineer-turned-racer (he
won Le Mans), and this book is a combination of
observations on the racing experience and lucid
discussions of the physics that govern a moving car.
Frere received a classical education and it shows in
the dry nature of the book; it's not a page turner,
but it is a good textbook. If you have an all wheel
drive car, you will be interested in Frere's
discussion of the ultimate handling characteristics of
all wheel drive.

The Physics of Racing
Web pages available at
This is a good series of articles by physicist Brian
Beckman on the mechanics of racing cars. It's as good
an introduction to understanding tire dynamics as any
I've seen, and the price can't be beat. Also
available at ftp://ftp.team.net/autocross/

Porsche High-Performance Driving Handbook
by Vic Elford
Motorbooks International, 1994
ISBN #0-87938-849-8
Very well written book with good techniques and
examples. Most books by retired racing drivers have a
lot of war stories and a little on driving but Elford
does a very effective job of using anecdotes from his
career to support the book's main thrust on technique.
Read it even if you only own a Matchbox Porsche or

Think to Win
by Don Alexander
Robert Bentley Publishers, 1995
ISBN #0-8376-0070-7
One of the few books with much content on the mental
aspect of driving. Only a few pages on autocrossing
and I'm not sure I agree with what is said there, but
the chapters on mental and emotional skills are well
worth a look.

Jackie Stewart's Principles of Performance Driving
Hazleton Publishing, 1986
ISBN # 0-905138-43-0
Stewart's book is getting dated now, but there is good
information to be found here both on high speed
driving technique and safer road driving. Jackie
Stewart is famous as one of the smoothest drivers in
Formula 1 history and explains his thoughts on driving
finesse pretty well here.

Bob Bondurant on High Performance Driving
Motorbooks International, 1993
ISBN #0-87938-751-3
Bob talks too much about himself but the material on
driving technique, though sketchy, is useful. I'd
give this one a good leafing through at the bookstore
before buying.


I bought the Henry Watts book and found it to be very good. Can't comment on the Dick Turner one. --Steve

Yes, it's in print again. But it seemed to me to be poorly translated and written in old-time style. I read the first 60~100 pages, and couldn't stand it any more. It was too difficult to read.... Or maybe I'm just too impatient (certainly could be).

Maybe if I went back and tried a few pages at a time, this time... Of course, that means I have to get it back from my father...

Just another name I haven't seen written... The Bob Boundurant book of high- performance driving (or something like that). It served me farly well as an intro book. Basic enough for beginners, I think.

>...the Watts book 'Secrets of Solo Racing'.

GET IT. It is dated, and somewhat wrong in some small things. Overall, it is a VERY good book for our sport. There is really nothing in second place.

>rather pricey at $50. Has anyone seen it? Is it worth the money?

No. There is so much malarky in this video is is difficult for a newbie to sort it out from the true stuff that exists in it.

Get it. Puhn is hard to understand in some things, but overall this is a very good book about suspensions and one of the standards for car freaks.

The Puhn Book and The Watts Book are essentials.


Date: Thu, 7 May 1998 08:11:54 -0700
From: Daniel Woodman

1. "Secrets of Solo Racing" by Henry Watts. There a fair amount of material on Solo 1 specifically, but the "combined" information plus the autocross stuff is top notch. This is the first book people on this list recommend for new autocrossers, and since I'm on my second reading, I can understand why. Its chock full of really good stuff.

2. "Competition and Sports Car Driving" by Paul Frere. Very famous and accomplished racing driver, and its a good book for any competitive driving. While it doesn't talk about autocross per se, it does talk about cornering forces & technique, braking, etc., and these are as applicable on road-course tracks as they are on an autocross.

3. "Ayrton Senna's Principles of Race Driving" by (guess who?) Ayrton Senna. Again, this is more oriented to road-course competition driving (similar to Frere's book), but the basic principles, ideas, techniques & tactics can also be applied to autocross. I think Ayrton was sufficiently successful in F1 that he's be considered a "credible" source of information... :-)

4. Get the video "Autocrossing with Dick Turner." This is how I started out autocrossing. A few people have a few nits to pick about the video, but as an introduction to autocross, its terrific. It is the most autocross-specific of any of the references in the list, and I learned A TON about autocrossing from it. I also learned very quickly what I was doing wrong, and how I should fix it. After having watched the video, I posted much faster times in my next few events. Of course, being new, I'm still hanging out at the bottom of the timing sheet, but that's what seat time is for...

From: Mark Sirota

I recently got turned on to "A Twist Of The Wrist" by Keith Code. There are two volumes; I've only read the first, but I'm told the second is easier reading.

It's really a motorcycle racing book, but there is simply nothing better out there that talks about the mental aspect (except maybe Rich Fletcher's occasional articles).


Date: Thu, 7 May 1998 09:38:45 -0600 (MDT) From: Mike Quinn

Another good one on the mental aspect is called "Think to Win". It has a lot on mental state, mechanical empathy, and the required driving technique. It does have a short section on autocross, but mostly covers road racing. Well worth the price.

.... a book written by a New York State Trooper called:

A Speeder's Guide to Avoiding Tickets
by Sgt. James M. Eagan, NYSP (ret.)
Avon Books, NY, NY.

I highly recommend it. Much of the book is devoted to how to act *after* the being pulled over.

BTW, in the last year I was pulled over twice in my RX-7 for speeding, and both times I got off with warnings. This book paid for itself many times over!

I was looking through some digests I skipped a while back and the subject of composites came up- someone looking for info. The Modern Formula 1 Racecar (Nigel Macnight) is the best book I have seen that shows how its done in detail. It has great pictures and covers the entire buildup of an F1 car from scale model to the track. I personally think the keith noakes book sucks.
