If you've owned a Racing Beat rotary header, Miata exhaust component or RB sway bar over the past four decades then it's likely passed through the skilled hands of John Rue of Phoenix Engineering. Sadly John recently passed away leaving a void in both our business and personal relationships. His tremendous tube bending skill, hard-working devotion, passion and warm-spirit will be sorely missed. The business was left in extremely capable hands of his sons Chad (left) and Austin (right), we look forward to what the future brings! Thanks John, you will be forever missed.

Great shot of the Furai with the Racing Beat Rotor Muffler on full display. Hand-crafted by Jim Mederer specifically for the Furai, requests for this muffler prompted us to produce this unique muffler as an offering for other custom exhaust applications. Available in both 2.5" and 3" ID sizes.

Jim Mederer: The Regent of the Rotary | Hagerty Media

Jim Mederer had a nearly insatiable desire to build things. Engines, race cars, houses, boats, airplanes, he just never stopped. A brilliant mind wrapped up in a quiet, soft spoken personality. A true pioneer.

Jim Mederer was a mechanical genius with the skills and bravery needed to master some of the fastest Mazdas on earth.

Looking good!

Vintage Friday - Discovered this photo in Jim Mederer’s office today. Dejected driver Don Sherman walks away from his RX-3 after a broken header put an end to his Bonneville Land Speed Record attempt. After repairs were made and another run undertaken, a new speed record of 160.3 MPH was in the books.

Another SevenStock event has come and gone. A surprise visit by former IMSA driver Rick Knoop was one our highlights of the day. Rick co-drove the RB IMSA GTO RX-7 during the 1983 season, winning Daytona and Mosport endurance races.

The final countdown has begun! Let's celebrate the week by taking a look at some of the places SevenStock has been held over the years. Racing Beat had our first official display at Mazda's R&D facility in Irvine, first in the inner courtyard and then in subsequent years along side of the building and then in back with the vendors. A great venue, but the crowds quickly overtook the neighborhood.

3-rotors and 3-turbos helped propel the RB RX-7 along at over 240 MPH at Bonneville. Setting a land speed record requires maintaining speed for a 2 mile section of the course while attempting to keep the car straight and on the ground!

Worst experience ever. I returned a radiator 2 months which they sold me & they never told me that they make thise for 80 series. However after 2 months I called them to get a status on the return. Then they will tell me that it was damaged I never took out the radiator fully off the box as the mechanic knew right away it's not going to work. No one ever called me to let know it was damage as they claimed until I called them 2 months later(today). They are disgusting wit their policy & customer service. Never again & this was my 1st time dealing g with them.
Never get tired seeing this RX7 FD in the shop, we installed some coilovers by Fortune Auto, Racing Beat sway bars and finished it off aligning it with our Hunter Engineering Hawkeye alignment machine. If you need any work done contact us! Call or text: 816-888-3808 ☎️ Email: [email protected] 💻 Or send us a PM here.
Finally got the vert all cleaned up after driftweek. Nearly 4 months later lol. Freaking love both of these cars so much for very different reasons. The vert is super raw and aggressive where the FB is just super happy and wants to drive any where you want. . . .

I ❤ Racing Beat. 10 years later, 100% of my cars continue to run their exhaust. Shout out to the esteemed Glen Powell for busting out his fancy at-home lift for the install. The clearance of the unit is really great underneath the black trim that comes on the Brembo package of the ND-- super happy that RB decided to make it a special option. I was also concerned that the change from dual tip to single tip was going to look weird-- not the case! Looks great, sounds great, feels even more joyous.
