It\'s unfortunate that a lot of RX-8 owners don\'t wave, but then that\'s the price of car selling success, as in the MX-5. I\'m sure their club members hate the fact that loads of people in MX-5s don\'t wave ! I prefer to let people wave at ME !! Or crank their necks so far round their heads following me. hehe
Stock the RX-7 will do the 8, I hear all of the aboves but there are two types of RX-7, the one driven fairly aggressively, and the balls-out "I\'m racing someone" type of driving. An extra 5% concentration makes the 7 so much faster, I\'ve killed DB-7s before cos they got whooped so quick they gave up. And in the second type of driving, with all that torque and roads the way they are, the superior power and weight will leave the 8 behind. Look at an elise, a fantastically handling car. Lighter than a rex, not sure about bhp per ton but even modified ones get killed by an RX-7.
And yes, I\'ve always been opinionated !! lol
And yes I own my own test track. :p (others call it the Nordschleife.... hehe).
