CP racing is from ontario.Right there alone we save from not having customs charges or extra shipping from the border here.Theres is 1000USD and Mariahs is 1200USD so your saving at least $400.The guy from CP racing said that the price includes shipping to your door.Mariahs kit you have to pay for shipping.

Either you can convert a SA to FB by using the FBs front panels.But the kit comes with a front dam and fender do its already universal.

Doesn't matter.They don't have a rear apron for it.The curves on the tails are identical.The front looks good.Those rear fenders are insanely wide.Imagine that thing coming up behind you in a city.People would be like WTF? What type of car is that. Tight kit but prolly need 11" wide rims for the rear to make it look right.

N/A power is more predictable, making it easier to control in a drift.

Personally I kinda like the 8. I think they could have made the styling a bit better but it is not terrible or anything. Not really srue on the numbers except I know it is around 250hp I think. Which is pretty good I guess. I like the fact that the rear seats are actually good and pretty much identical to the front seats, and the fact that the rear seats are not some sick joke with about 1/2 foot between them and the front. If your gonna have rears at least have them functional and comfortable. Will be interesting to see what kind of #'s people can get from it with some mods and porting, and see what kind of times it can run. All in all I hope it does well.

welcome Black FC!

I dont really like the rx-8 it looks dope pimped out. I mean it looks nice but it doesn't look dazzling.

To many cars look like it now

350z rx8 new supra....etc

RX-8 makes 250HP from NA 1.3L engine...which is pretty good...

BUT....

4 seater, 4 doors, higher hight, not very sporty compare to RX-7...

Cough* The frame is twice as stiff and it makes the same power as the FD n/a

Not too shabby, anyone see the C+D article? Rx-8 beat out the new cobra and a lexus...I'll see if I can dig the link up

Not sure if I have seen the link or not. I have seen a video from C+D I think of the 8 on a track and they tested it out. They gave it really good marks all around pretty much. You gotta admit that it would make a wicked daily driver at least if you have done something to your 7 making it a pain to drive on street (ie bridgeport).
