Okay. I appreciate that info. Did the Super Now tie rod ends have any effect on steering angle?

No it just corrects bumpsteer and steering feels more precise.

So about a month ago i picked up a known running motor from a local dude that totaled his rx8 which I plan to build with the help of some friends or just send it to a shop to have cleaned up, ported & upgraded apex seals in the near future. Right now im waiting on a shine auto type f front bumper, buddy club driver seat & rail, and a Super now pulley to come in the mail.

Hey I have a few question , hope you dont mind. lol
1 Where did you pickup thoes side mirrors? Ive been trying to get some lol
2 What coilover are you running? I ask that cause I gotten some TEIN Basic coilovers and Ive thrown my car around on some roads and parking lots but its seems your car tends to really dip in those corners.
3 Other then your CAI, any other engine mods ?

I ask all this cause im trying to set up my rx8 for drifting too. Im coming from drifting a old 86 mustang , and a 86 sr5

There called Ganador super mirrors and you can get them from Rhdjapan. Im running Bc racing br coilovers which i dislike and plan on changing soon but i run them pretty stiff dampening. Its just a healthy stock renesis engine deleted secondary air pump and catalytic converter. I just drive hard seat time is everything

Any updates on the motor build? You're going FI or staying NA. I'm looking into rebuilding mine soon as well, mainly around reliability and the occasional lead foot syndrome I have.

But not assembling the motor myself tho lol. I'm gonna have it done by a shop, but looking into light porting and an upgrading seals as well. What apex seals are you gonna run, and whos doing the porting?

Rx8 is on the back burner right now due to a car accident, its not dead so i wait till its ready to return better than ever. As of motor plans i was planning on getting a greddy turbo kit and using racing beat porting templates, rotary aviation seals and prolly go to smg racing in RI or Irp in NJ to have it assembled.

Heard good things about IRP. I'll be heading that way when I need a rebuild. And same seal choice I've been looking into Rotary Aviation classics for NA. Not planing on boosting the renny.
