Hey Scott, I know you'll need something to ease the pain of the UGA/LSU game. Nice ride! Hope the jorr-juh dawgs fans are treating you OK.

Funny you mention pain killing - I was stomping grapes in Paso Robles while the game was underway. I think I got the better end of the deal. I don't get too much grief from the locals over either football team choice (Saints being the other one).

I do have carbon fiber fenders on the front, as I bought it crashed, and needed to replace the passenger side one. Turns out the carbon fiber isn't much lighter than the factory aluminum ones (like a pound per side). Does look cool though.


That is pretty cool looking. I've been reading a lot at r88club.com, tons of info over there. Doesn't sound like the RENESIS is very moddable thou, compared to previous gen rotaries.

I'm guessing you meant, rx8club.com, and yeah. I am a moderator of the fc3s_org (2nd gen RX-7) Yahoo group, and probably have made close to a 1000 posts there, I'm not nearly as active on the RX-8 forum.

Mazda learned from all the modding and tuning that had been done to the 13B engines over the years. They incorporated just about all they could into the Renesis. So yeah, there aren't many gains to be had that Mazda didn't explore themselves.

Handling can be improved a bit though, stiffening the chassis (Mazda did this in a few special cars), better suspension components, and just going to newer tire technology (I have Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Positions), and even though they are all season (a dedicated summer tire can be even better, but don't dare drive them when it gets down into the 40s) they stick incredibly well, and move water off the road like nothing I've ever felt.

Those RX-8's are fun cars. Very underappreciated. Get yourself some sticky tires. Best mod you can possibly do. I can recommend Michelin Pilot Super Sports without any reservation. I put some on my car this past spring. I was running Nito NT05's. I have quite literally had to re-learn how to drive the car.

This weekend I flushed the coolant, replaced the plugs, coils and wires then changed the oil. It still runs so I didn't doing much wrong. Going to take it down to the SCCA Nationals site in Lincoln this coming weekend. First time doing Autocross.
