What do you have for suggestions?

Turblown

Elliot is a good guy. Shawn is a good guy (just needs to shave that beard off ).

Another buddy of mine builds the engines for Turblown.

We are building my 20B for the FD and my Renesis when my rotors get back from Chip Motorsports (edm cut and race balanced).



Oh...and I am from Shakopee

Hello there, newby here from Cottage Grove, MN. We bought a 2005 RX8 and while the car runs ok, it feels it could use a good tune up. Before buying this car, we were told the previous owner blew the engine and new one had just been installed. It ran great at first for the first couple of months, now it's been dragging, not nearly as much power as before and even shuts off while standing on a red light.

I see many different recommended places for service of this type of car mentioned in this forum, just wondering if there was a consensus on a proven place in the Twin Cities to take this car to.

Thanks a lot for any responses in advance.

We seem to be the only green Rx8 in the area...

Regards,
Edgar

Close enough... To rent?

Greetings fellow northlanders. Im just next door to the west in North Dakota. Whilst i currently do not own an rx8 it is on my short list soon.

That said, I know this is random but are any of you on Turo for me to rent your rx8 for a day? I live in Fargo but want to see and feel the experience prior to buying to see how my commute would be, and want to take it around itastca route to really appreciate its handling and take in the fall colors. 6sp gt model is on my list for creature comforts and sunroof.

Im new, but real. I prefer turo as then everyone is covered, but if you are interested in coming along im cool with that too. Im a car aficionado, and was tempted to head to mn cars and coffee this weekend but the Bison are playing in town and my son wants to go to that instead.

Anyway, enjoy and just dm me or reply if this might be an option. Thank you!
