Ha I'm prolly a bad example. For the most part I park mine in fear of someone else crashing into me. I do drive it here and there when the roads are clear of snow, but I leave my toyo t1r's on so my traction cuts down quite a bit if i hit a spot with snow or ice. If it starts snowing, I usually head home....lol

There was a crushed 8 here in fargo and he seemed to make it around just fine during the winter. Looked like he was on stock tires too but they could have been snow tires. I'm not sure. I wouldn't be afraid of lowering with just lowering springs. Just be careful of how and where you drive. And from what I have read, snow tires work wonders in the snow, so if you plan on driving in the winter, some would be a good investment.

As far as having a front lip, I am lowered with just the stock lip on my car and don't think i really ever rub anywhere. I am careful going up and down slants and over bumps. And if you are worried about pushing snow with it, if it's secured properly nothing should happen, unless you're trying to push through a hard snow drift, which I couldn't imagine you doing.

I got my eight in febuary the night before the one of the biggest blizzards in a few years, then 2 weeks after that there was another, and each time my car was stuck in my driveway for only about 3 days and im on stock tires so i would think you will be fine.

i was going to run you over if you didnt get on it.. i was running a little late to work..


sad.. just 135... they can do that easily... getting past 140 is the fun part.. my first run i hit 139, i was pissed cuz i didnt get 140, second time(30mins later) i hit 143 and was happy about that, and my third try just a month ago hit 150 than came over the hill and i was gunna try for the 160 mark but the speed limit changed to a 45 and i was like ****!! small town approaching.. lol

i should take you north of belfield sometime.. just follow me and you will get 150 easily, than it just depends on how much road and traffic...

Buy a set of Blizzaks and you'll be just fine if your careful. I drove my 8 up until i deployed in febuary with no problems.

Where are you stationed now, and whats your job???

oic, but i was acctually going to ask for future reference, how is the mazda dealer in Fargo? I ended up going to rapid city this weekend because the bismarck one blows... But my coolant light was going off when there was no problem, searched and found out it was common so i got a new tank and sensor under warranty.

mixed feelings on the dealership I guess. There is one guy that works on RX8's and they usually just let him handle them so that's kinda nice. I'd say they're good tho.
