  2. From what I hear, the new Mazda's are reliable and sporty. I don't know much about mazda though.

    i test drove some 07 rx8's when i was still not sure if i wanted an m3. they are really fun to drive, reliable, sporty. i think they are a pretty nice car. im not that much a fan of how they look on the outside, they look pretty straight for sure but i think it could use some minor modifications, like the tail lights im not that big a fan of (all of which can be done with small mods if wanted), but in general a really nice car and fun to drive.

    The rx-8s have had TONS of problems from what I've heard. That's the reason they can be had pretty cheap used I suppose, but yeah I was in love when they first came out....well, still am as far as cosmetics go.

    Has anything really changed since 2001?

    Lets see, a Corvette with a 6-speed can nail 30 mpg on the highway...

    These cars get like 23-25 mpg
    It's a rotary 1.3liter engine
    ZERO low end torque
    like 212hp in the manuals
    you gotta rev to 5500 rpms to make about 150 ft. lbs of torque

    This car requires insane revs to make power, it's not particularly reliable, it's not a drag car without major mods or engine swap..

    BUT
    It handles really well.

    but then again, what does this thing weigh??


    Just because I know you all love me:

    The camaro ss posted .87 on the skidpad and 60mph in the slalom and they weigh around 3600-3700 lbs.

    the rx8 posted .88 on the skid pad and 65.4 in the slalom.



    Pz.

    Snikka doesn't see cars. He just sees numerical statistics in green upon a black background.
