the car was sitting for a couple of years with out any use. so i drained the fuel tank filled with new gas and added a can of sea foam.(carb cleaner) sparyed some starter fluid in her and she fired right up. drove her home 90 miles, and here goes the clutch feels good, but i haveto rev it a bit to take off in first, is this normal? and when i got it home i noticed gas was dripping somewhere under the carb. so i went out and started it today, and it wouldnt start without sparying starter fluid in it. so im need to know what are the first things i need to do to get this thing ready for the road. things i need to check, change, etc... thanks in advance..

I'm not too good with Fb's almost bought one myself though. It might be the throttle body but that's just a guess. You have the carb so it shouldn't be to hard to fix/diagnose.
www.rx7club.com (http://www.rx7club.com) will be your best friend from this moment on. If they can't help you over the net find people who are local on the forum and I'm sure they'll stop by and help.

If there was fuel coming from near the carb, check the rubber fuel lines first to make sure they are not jacked up. Fuel pressure could be too high. Also, a rebuild would be suggested. Rebuild kits are pretty inexpensive and its not hard to do. I also suggest rx7club.com, I had and FB until just recently, the police took it from me.

it should take a little gas to start in 1st because rotaries have no torque there
