    Default Test drove my uncles new purchase RX8

    Today my uncle purchased a late 2003, RX8 type S, 6 speed manual. it has 12k mileage only/scratchless. i loved the drive and handling. in search for new tyres now, 225/45/18
    (probably will have to get imported from karachi)
    i liked the seating position and the boot size of the car was pretty impressive.
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    @shiraz.. think u meant to say cars in pakistan, not pakistani cars.. i hope rx8 is never assembled in pak... all they will do is ruin it looking and current qualities...

    @hash.. congrats!!!

    beautiful, beautiful car.

    I have always loved this after the evo

    But what I dont understand is some one reply early in this thread that the Rx8 wins on looks but "too bad about the performance"

    I dont get it, 240 bhp from a 1.3L for 1.4M?? what lack in performance are we talking about here?

    This car is win, win, win!!

    So, many congrats
    I pretend to work, they pretend to pay me

    Hey all... Wanted to clear a missconception here.. The car is NOT 1.3 Litre ... It is a 1.3 litre ROTARY.. which means that the car has 2 1.3 litres which means the total engine capacity is 2.6 litres. It is damn near IMPOSSIBLE to get 240 bhp from 1.3 litres.

    Secondly about the perfomance Mazda Rx8 is the ONLY car with perfect 50/50 power to weight ratio .

    To further prove my point below is the link

    i think u just added misconceptoions :-D

    i always thought rotatorys are traingular rotating block, with 3 burning segments. now that 1300cc is either size of all those 3, or maybe one, leading to 3.9ltrs equilant.
    i donuu how u came up with 2.6 figure. need experts INFO here!!

    @storm
    well he will never go for a run with my car....
    because he wants to keep the car for sometime now

    @all
    rotaries dont have pistons from which the water capacity of 1300cc can be measured precisely. Anyways 1300cc category makes the token value very reasonable
