Well this is my first post, I just bought a 87 N/A about 5 days ago. It needs alittle work but I got it for a decent price. The only problems on it is that it is to low and the exhaust is not all that great either. I really need to get the suspension fixed because the owner before lowered it by heating the springs, I think (it bounces too much). I also have trouble starting it occasionally, it just turns off after you turn the key, I'm not sure whats wrong since I am new to rotary. Thanks in advance.

The bouncing thing is probably worn out struts which happens a lot with lowering springs.

no... once i flooded it trying to drift in the mall parking lot and stalled it and quickly learned how to get around it the fast way... which was pulling the EGI fuse or what ever and cranked it over put it back in and it ALWAYS fired right back up....
