congrats on the RX8

I thought of getting one myself, but couldn't get over the poor gas milage/ problematic engine and overall weak power output of the car

Other than that, I think it drives great and looks hot when modded with good taste.

Ya the oil doesn't bother me at oil not a big deal! the gas is the shitty part you use 94 octane? Notice any difference from 91 to 94? I use 91 octane myself!

are you required to use higher octane fuel? On the race cars, we use 87 and never had a problem. The Rotary engine is not that high of a compression.

I just use 91 octane like my manual says dont really know if theres a huge difference if I use 94 or not but people on the rx8club say if you use regular gas(87) then it bogs down the cars performance and what not

I was close to picking one up but the guy at the dealership actually told me that they are problematic, I said okay and never asked why.. I heard that you need to redline them all the time in order to remove the carbon build up in the motor.

Ya thats one thing you need to do but you dont have to do it every single day...plus who doesn't like red linning their cars..Its not a bad car one you figure it out...just most people are lazy fucks and dont know how to take care of shit...

Cool..I did not know that anyone in the lower mainland raced 8's.
