Yeah, it is pretty weak. Not even 200 in torque. But, like I said, its just made for cornering.

kinda like this actually:

Yeh I know RX-8 is a nice car but STFU already, anything can be made fast with a turbo. Hell I could add a turbo on my tC and be pushing 300HP at 8psi with stock internals. My opinion is RX-7>RX-8.

Can anyone say the new GTR is secks on wheel, Amuse already tunned one of these babies. Added front splitter, new wing, modded the CPU, a new exhaust, done some suspension tuning and increased the boost pressures a bit. Already Pushing 600HP and having a faster lap time, im in love with this car.

Well if you are good enough at splicing wires together, you wouldn't REALLY need a harness...well atleast I didn't need one for the 2 or 3 systems I've done, but if you ever need the original back in you are kinda screwed!

that does suck for those who are more mechanical savvy rather than tech savvy but the way things are going, a thorough knowledge about computers and electronics is just as important as possessing mechanical know-how.

There's no way you can lose almost 60hp through that transmission. lol
Try maybe 210-ish.

But yeah, I liked the RX-7's better. I even love the FCs.
The RX-8 is no slouch though, there's one I race against that hangs me out to dry on the circuit, but I just got new racing tires so we'll see if I can catch him next time I go out.
