looks great..... You will probably be doing this any way, but you might want to start cutting some weight. Unless you want to keep the look of the stock interior.

thanks everybody for the compliments. I actually have slid it around a bit, and it is definitely there. I don't think the power is going to be an issue for me, as I was worried it wasn't going to be as much as I wanted. The carbonetic 2-way is sick. I got the carbon one and its way more street friendly and smooth.

The car has an awesome tune done with the AP by Ryan shook at Shook motorsports in Rockford, IL. Seriously, the car feels so great. His exhaust work was on point too. The thing is so ****** rowdy under full throttle. I love it.

And full interior kicks ***. I don't plan on doing much more honestly. Its too sweet on the inside.

Great build! Power always seem to be the issue with the RX8's. Maybe a V8 could be your option. Is it possible to do that kind of swap on these things? That would be pretty sick. Props on what you done, looking forward to some videos, that would be sweet.
