Buggy is on a distinguished road

This car had a busy year. I ended up taking it to deals gap in april because the rx4 just wasn't ready. It was rock solid as always. Only had issues with the fuel system pressurizing the tank at high altitudes and temps for some strange reason. I haven't had an issue with it since then. I also took time to play with the tune on the dyno. After 2 days of tuning we got a consistent 320 rwhp from it which was fantastic. Sadly the engine didn't like that and labour day weekend it said enough was enough. After 98,000 kms one of the apex seals on the rear rotor went. So I will rebuild it this winter and be back at it in the spring.
