Mitchell Newman looked around many places before finding the perfect LHD FD RX-7 to begin his project. After having a rotary guru look over the car and set up the previous owner's build in a way that it wouldn't detonate, he drove it for a summer, and parked it for the winter. While away through the winter season, he made a list of modifications and started acquiring them. A few months later, he started assembling and transforming the RX-7 into a new monster.
