That looks horrible. You spent more money on the bodykit than the car is worth. Sorry.

I just don't get it. There's hardly any options for looks or performance for our cars. we should be grateful that somebody out there is actually taking interest on our cars, let it be wild or not. at-least there are options. Me personally i think it pretty f-ing cool!!

No options for looks? I can think of at least 15 different body kits. Many of which I feel really flow with the RX-8 design. His work is not an option for anyone else, it's all custom built and I doubt will be mass produced. All in all we have opinions and this is a forum.

OK! Body kits,

lets see most of these you cant even get in the US. unless you got the loot. If you do find them, they are cheap replicas that have fitment issues and cost too much and the place were you get it from dicks you around and doesn't want to help you.

The RX8 X-MEN line tell me where to buy it, cause i don't.

I would like to see Mazda do what Toyota and Lexus do for their performance vehicles. Toyota has TRD and Lexus has the F1 Sport line. which both these companies cover styling and performance.

Mazdaspeed is ok, but what do they support? Not the rotary itself. Unless im missing something.

So like i said b4 let those who are interest come, dont scare these companies away cause you are a Hater!

how is that any different than this??? Gotta pay to play, this owner spent probabaly 3-5 times the cost to get this compared to nicest kits availabe,,,

^Took the words right out of my mouth.

Rican, I'm all for bringing on new ideas, but read again, it's a one-off produced car kit that is simply not to everyones liking but the owner. You're digging yourself deeper into a pit. Take some time and learn a bit more on this forum.

FYI - http://www.mazdamotorsports.com

first of all, all i wanted to say was that, its a good thing that other are interested in our vehicles, not just this kit. just companies in general. ive never owned anything but a rotary, u pull out mazdasports, where is it on this site that there are any "upgrades" for the engine, or tranny. maybe some suspension parts. but mostly for the 3 & 6. oh yea interiors. make a comment on this forum and u get chewed out. Damn! and about knowledge i think i do my fair share of searching and learning. maybe u should to...

Huh?

There are loads of upgrades for the RX8. There are several turbo kits, tons of exterior modifications, various engine management choices as well as suspension kits, brakes etc etc etc. Mazda does what many other companies do. They contract to to other companies to make parts and then provide a warranty for them. Do you think that Toyota or Nissan make all their own aftermarket parts?

If you have as much rotary experience as you claim you'd understand that the engine cannot be upgraded in the same fashion as a piston motor. Upgrades such as ceramic seals, lightweight rotors or porting are all VERY expensive and not things you would do for a normal street car. Still, they are out there.

The RX8 has a rather robust market for upgrades for such a niche market. I'm not sure what all the complaining is about.

...make a comment on this forum and u get chewed out.
I'm not sure how other forums are handled but here if you post an idea or piece of information you best be ready to defend it. The purpose of this forum is the exchange of ideas and critique of technical matters. If you don't want to be judged then don't post.

I couldn't stop shaking my head after this:

So with the Lamborghini Reventon-style skirts, J's Artworks suggested that I widen the body. That did not sit very well with me because I still wanted the use the car on the race track.
I wonder if he kills himself the first time he scrapes the wall or another car.. or if batman comes down and falcon punches him?

If I had this I would spend my afternoons having intercourse with this car. But serious I like it. I agree that for it to look like this it needs 450+ hp. Where do I buy? lol
