Akron/Cleveland 8 Owners.

Seems like alot of the Columbus guys get together, if nothing else, on these forums. I KNOW there are 8 owners in Cleveland and Akron because I have seen 'em. So, where are you guys on the forums? I live in Wadsworth, which is Akronish. I'm wanting to do some things with the 8 this summer and want to find other owners near-by.

I see a black RX-8 running on I-90 sometimes around the Chester street exit. I never take my 8 to Cleveland, I'm always there in the work mini-van. Although I always envy those that are in there 8's when I'm not. I went to your website. You got quite the nice setup. Mine's mostly stock. Although I did add some Kenwood subs and a Kenwood Excelon amp. It's nothing really heavy, but it adds a little kick to it. I also got the Racing Beat exhaust and the a/c and oil coller covers. I'm happiest the most about the RB exhaust. It was just what I was looking for.

Well...if you hear a black 8, more than you see it...or you see some wicked underbody ground effects....that's me! :D Trust me...you'll hear me! (On the positive side, I've noticed no one will tailgate me...I'd like to credit my exhaust! :D ) Oh...and especially around dead-man's curve, I love to drop the gears and rev the engine up under all the bridges....it sounds fantastic...brings a smile to the face every time!

I'm a new 8 owner in Cleveland, but I'm actually moving to Cinci in June. Any good shows up there before then?

Yeah I know Green. Not to far from me. I'm in Wadsworth. I keep seeing a red 8 driving around Wadsworth that isn't mine either Doylestown too. I suspect it's the same car.

That sounds good to me. I won't really be available until after late June though. Brilliant black is awsome!

Sweet! I live near Bidingers Ice Cream. If you are ever going down college street and it's a weekend you might see it in the driveway, if I'm not off driving around in it. Sadly I don't get to drive it much during the week because of my job. We could have a minature ralley in Wadsworth now lol. I see a red 8 going around town too. Is it possible to have 3 8's in one town?? ...boggle...

Neat, that's just up the road. Sure, if you see the 8 sitting in the drive, stop-by. It would be nice to meet a fellow 8 owner.

Maybe we can schedule a meeting at Quaker Steak and Lube in Independence some time or somplace more close as well. Car night at Wink's in Barberton is always neat place to go as well.

I just got an 8 about a month ago and i love it, haven't 'done anything to it, just enjoying it so far. I'm from Hudson but i drive down to akron alot to visit my girlfriend because it's where her apartment is. I always see a dark silver one up by the Summa health center and there is a red one with a car bra in the apartment next door. Any of those you guys?

I live in Northern Akron (between Howe Ave and Tallmadge).
I've installed an Agency exhaust with a race pipe (sure does increase the sound), an AEM intake, and an Agency under driven pulley. I drive up RT8 to Twinsburg for work. Hope to see you guys around.

whats up everyone. I live in Columbus right now, but I'm originally from Cleveland. My parents and most of my friends still live up there, so I try to make it north once every couple months. I'm down for a Cleveland meet. It's always cool talking with other owners.

Hey everyone! I'm in Brecksville and so far have the only Lightning Yellow I've seen in the area, so if you see a LY it's probably me.

Seems like there are a bunch of us and we should be able to get some get together going sometime. Hey Jon who works in twinsburg is your car black without a spoiler? Because i saw one up there not to long ago. Our cars seem to be rare enough that if you see one in an area someone says they frequent that there is pretty good chance its them.
