Wow it is a light car, maybe not the fastest stock but with a three rotary and a turbo it can be a really dangerous car on the streets and race tracks.

It's sad, it seems like a lot of the market is shifting from performance to comfort.

Oh, thats about 3 hours north of here.

On the RX-8, it is a bit of a weak car, not even 200hp I think. But its made for cornering and that, and it looks cooler then a civic, lol, stands out.

232 HP, 190 Ft. lbs. of torque. 200 pounds heavier than the RX-7, making it 3,000 pounds. Owners of both say that the RX-8 is more refined and easier to drive, even when pushing it. The RX-7 performs better than the RX-8, but it takes a more skilled driver to take it there than the RX-8.
