Angry What was mazda thinking??!!

Man i really dont know what they were thinking with the rx8, in my opinion they really messed up, no offense to owners of one, they look good and all but they are sloooow, man my expectations were really high for this car till i ran one (legally, let me just add) and i just took him to school, i couldnt believe it so we ran again same thing, we ran about four times and he didnt even come close my mods are a vortech with intercooler, and basically every other thing you can think of no nitrous, the rx8 had many bolt ons he said before we ran, i dont know im just disapointed with mazda Am i the only one!!??

I think it's a great little car...my good friend snagged the first one that came to town, I love the way it drives, and it's uniqe. The engine's pretty s[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]*, I like the styling, and it's pretty quick/nimble.

Perhaps a little on the pricey side though!

well was it a stick or automatic....b/c the autos i believe have like 190something horspower.....and the sticks are i think like 250hp....so considering ur probably running close too 200 horses or more, not too mention your car is way lighter....of course you would be able to take him.

I guess if a rotary engine isn't in a tank then no one in the US appreciates it...

I was driving my focus read my whole post you shouldve figured that out by now and i dont know where you get your facts thinkin the a viper was the best car to go against an rx8 in your mind to win! and i seriously doubt they do 0 to 60 in less than 5 sorry.
