Welcome to the site from a northerner.

People pop up intermittently from down there. Your more likely to find others in St Louis. It's about an hours drive for you, but just think of it this way, it will be in the RX8.

I just looked it up. I guess it's about 2 hrs away.

No clubs that I know of yet in our region but cars are popping up everywhere in Paducah.

St Louis has a good amount of people with a rather large radius. There is a regional sticky thread or join the Facebook group called stlrxclub. Make sure it is the one with a bunch of posts and members.

I'm finally in an rx8

As of 2/6/13 I'm the proud owner of a 2004 Rx8 gt. Just put new plugs in and changed the oil.

Enjoy, read through the new members forum to get your feet wet. Did you have a compression test done? Good numbers?
