The v6 1le is classed in F-street (the 4-cyl is F-street and the V8 is b-street). If I were on the SEB doing the classing, it would probably go in F-street. But I don't think it'll be competitive there as the e92 m3 owns that class right now. If it get put in F-street, I think it can be right up there with the Civic

Very nice! I generally run a heavily prepped STX-RX8 but I am kind of getting bored with it. I ran a friends DS-prepped Focus RS at my last event due to an issue with my RX-8 that popped up as I was driving there and had a blast with it. I ran in STU for points purposes but if I would have ran in DS, I would have

As far as spins are concerned, yours was one of the best outcomes. You didn’t hit anything, no one hit you, and you don’t even have to clean out grass, sand or gravel from your underside (the car, not your shorts lol).

I owned a few Iron Duke Fieros and even in that platform it was incredibly slow.  I can only imagine how painful it was to drive a Camaro with the iron duke.

I’m probably one of like, 5 people who are actually excited about this car. The Mustang SVO has always been my favorite Mustang as I am a lover of the odd, different, and unique when it comes to cars and this is probably the closest Ford will ever get to bringing the concept that was the original SVO back.

While you can’t get it exactly on the base package, you can get the HPP and handling package for a $37400 sticker price (A point I wish they would have brought up in the article).  Not quite 35k, but a bit closer.

I have an even bigger monstrosity up the street from me.

I have one of these monstrosities further up the street from me. In face it even has an additional set of doors over the one you posted!

I agree with this article, but I’ll take an of-center hood scoop over off-center badging any day of the week.

Same. It wasn't til after I read a few paragraphs in that I figured out what the headline was actually conveying.

I have been hunting for another rx-8 for a winter beater and potential rallycross car to get me through the cold months. I have my own compression tester and just haven't been able to find one with decent compression yet.

I can’t really argue that. My lifetime average is 19mpg for a 2850lb car. Thankfully my daily, a 2016 STI is much more efficient! 21mpg all day long!! Ugh.....I make such poor (but fun) car decisions.

Yeah, even cheap Motorsport isn’t cheap at all, especially if you want to become competitive. I run an STX-prepped RX-8 in SCCA autocross. I run in roughly 3 different regions but no more than 300 miles round trip. Just between entry fees, gas, at least one full set of tires, shock rebuilds, at least one driving

I just finished up the whole thing last night. I honestly enjoyed it. Far from amazing, but not anywhere near as awful as I was expecting. A lot of cool cars and people not afraid to throw them into anything, no matter the potential damage.

I have read about that issue but have not suffered it yet. But I did have to resolder the pins on the control board of my climate control knob to get it to work again. Getting everything apart to that point isn't hard, but it is a bit tedious.

I’ve been looking for a winter beater and a backup auto-transmission car that the wifey can drive if need be and an automatic RX-8 is one the list. Fortunately I haven’t been able to find one with good enough compression numbers (I have my own compression tester and bring it and the few tools I need to do one with me

I posted on there too but my comment was too far down to really be noticed by anyone.  But I really don’t worry about all the naysayers to the RX-8.  It’s not for everyone, and yeah, the engine isn’t great but whatever.  Ive had my RX-8 for 8 years now, have put over 45k miles on it and hundreds and hundreds of

This RX-8 is running a 400+whp MZR (Mazdaspeed3/6) engine in it. John Vitamas is a national champion level autocrosser and has spent most of this season getting it sorted out, but my goodness its a monster.
