Looks really good, but I'm afraid that with those big intakes next to the grill that I'd vacuum litter, leaves, squirrels, small children and other debris off the street and clog something up.

Is there any interest to order this?
If a couple people want it we could all save on shipping over to North America.. and potentially get a group rate

Don't like the late 90s Camaro-esque hood scoop. Else it's not bad.

Build quality is excellent. The carbon inlay is a little odd. What they did was just not put gelcoat around those accent areas. We'll have to tape it all off to paint it. This is also going on an S1 car, so there will be some modifications to it. The accent lights don't come with it, so I'll have to order those separately now...

I don't think it'll fit an S1 at all. The headlight cutouts are different

It's composites... anything can be changed. My body guy will make it clean. I'm not worried about it.

Not bad! I liked the Grey Leg Motorsports car that appeared in a more recent Hot Version video where they were comparing used budget RWD sports cars including an AP1 S2000, NB Miata, Caterham, etc. The RX-8 actually won the Touge Battle portion.

I'll poke you once I get the car back, or if he sends me any pictures. It would probably be easier to do the S2 swap to install it than what I'm doing, but the panspeed wide fenders are S1, so it was all going to be custom anyway...

Sure thing. The budget FR cars sections is about 3/4s of the way through.

I was surprised that it beat the S2000 honestly, but the setup looked really good. The car just gripped and Taniguchi was able to just put power down at corner exit without the car getting upset over the bumps.

I'm not surprised at all. The S2000 has better numbers on paper in some ways, but... Unless you install a huge front sway bar and a huge rear wing, it will step out on you like crazy. The RX-8 is a much better balanced car.

Back when I was doing time trials, I could determine with near 100% accuracy, whether I was going to beat an S2000, simply by the absence or presence of a giant APR.

Cool vid. Much enjoy.

Makes us realize just how amazing our cars are. I can't even imagine how cool it must have been to have one of these back in 2003.

I agree with Steve - anyone who laughs at the RX8, the moment they drive it or ride as a passenger realize we got a great deal on a car with phenomenal handling and good performance (and if you drive it like the engineers designed it). We paid far less than for that Porsche.
