But they did forsee this problem and to guard against it produced a very, very expensive stainless exhaust shroud that fit in the recess. Cannot remember for the life of me the cost of these but it was as all RX8 extras b****y exhorbitant. Ask me how I know. :smiley_confused1:
Finance dictated it had to go 13 months ago,  after 14 years in an RX8 regretted ever since.

Its the overun Jamie...best way is to rev out select the next gear and coast  no throttle. Youll get a lovely long flame then.
Westy does some epic flames using that technique.

But I like to smoke lol

I gotta put the brake n clutch fluid reservoirs slightly behind the seats on top of the transmission tunnel.

No room in the engine bay.

The m/c’s come back into the cockpit under my heels.

The obvious place is on the bulkhead and gravity feed..... some twonk put an exhaust in the way

I am still concerned about that exhaust mate...next time your drivng your eight put your hand on the transmission tunnel...rotarys do heat very well.

Front bumper faded to hell, but that won’t slow me down
