    ya as im sure you know they have no torque. good HP numbers for a tiny engine..but it doesnt make the power in the same places of the band as we do...so unless its F/I or juiced its pish posh lol

    Rx-8's are dogs. Have had a few owners admit it.

    Why are these guys boasting how fast their stock cars are? Both of those cars are 14s stock. They are both excellent handling cars and both are RWD... so that's a plus, but in straight line acceleration, they are nowhere near a low 13s F-body.

    around 210 hp 160 ft lbs of peak torque. with 3k weight... dont expect much. especially with with rotary motors. 100k and done is true to rotary vehicles.

    Nice kill, well if that's what you wanna call it, a best friend of mine has one too. Full exhaust, cai, coilpack upgrade (guess it helps) and he was able to take out mustang gts in it but really they just aren't fast. I snapped both of my belts racing him lol. I started listening to his rev limiter (9k I believe) rather than my own haha

    RX-8s are slow. I read a magazine test on a GReddy turbo one a few years back and that one wasn't even that fast. Those cars are meant for curves, not drag racing.

    Nice kill. A win is a win no matter how slow a car is. If they are willing to race then bring it on

    Oh yeah, nice kill I was always trying to sucker those into a race when I still had my LT1 Z. Never bit. Oh well.

    Nice easy kill. Whoever designed the style/shape of the RX8 should no longer be employed with Mazda. Drove past a parked RX-8 a few days ago and what really caught my eye was how similar in design the 2010 Camaro rims are to the RX8s, other than size they are near identical.

    Why? I think it is a great-looking car with a great chassis. It needs to be reintroduced as the MX-8 with the MazdaSpeed3 engine under the hood, IMHO. If I was rolling in dough, that car would be my choice for the import to pick up and stuff an LS7/T56 into.
