Traded in the focus ...
 
So. I haven't been on much recently with work and school both at full time hours. But I decided that having an automatic fwd car was kinda getting boring. I now have a 2005 mazda rx-8 with almost half the miles my focus has, and it's a 6 speed.

Then after I demodded it to trade it in...

I do miss the fofo, but it was time for an upgrade.

I really miss the nice mpg on low octane gas !

I will still check up on FF [ffrocks] and try to attend meets if I'm off work.

Be sure to redline everyday for good engine health!

Both cars look nice! Hope you enjoy the new car.

Wellington, eh? I was just up there...well near there. The majority of my family lives in Oberlin and we drive through wellington to get there. Next time I be up there will be at Christmas, so maybe I will see the rx-8 in person. :p haha

Ok, for sure. just message me. It's a lot o' fun lol

zx3_bmxrider 10-28-2012 09:10 PM

I will man! I bet. This chick I new in high school had one. I always wanted to drive it. lol

flamebird1313 10-28-2012 09:14 PM

Yea, it's a blast to drive. I thought my focus had good handling, it's nothing compared to this car. I went into a parking lot and couldn't make it lose grip from just turns... If I use the gas in a turn though its a whole different really fun story [rofl]

Nice upgrade! No, more painting interiors[nono] no need to ruin a perfectly good Mazda. What are your plans for it?

flamebird1313 10-28-2012 09:16 PM

I wanna do black rims, lower it, and a nice exhaust so I can shoot my fireballs. Those are immediate things I wanna do... oh yea tints too
