Oh I know... drool. That's not happening though.
Most people don’t realize it’s not the initial cost that gets you. It’s having to buy the dozen or so wear spacers and then maintaining it within the tight wear range; which means pulling the trans and clutch to measure it on a regular basis.

As usual; gotta pay to play.

I'm going with a Spec mini-twin...

As for the tune, not sure what I'm going to do about that. I have a cat-back right now, but for the header and mid-pipe I'm thinking that I might have something made up, based on what Team has posted.

Kinda depends if I get bored of the RX-8. Something-something car ADD.

I'm not sure how competitive it will be this season, but it will be fun chasing your times!

You may have seen the sale ad on that other site. Suspension-wise it's got Ohlins DFVs valved for 11/8k springs, Hotchkis bars with adjustable links front and rear, and Powerflex black poly bushings. The motor has a Racing Beat intake and header, Black Halo Racing catted midpipe, custom single-exit exhaust, and is tuned with a Cobb AccessPort.

I'm just planning to put 275s on the STX wheels and have some fun this season. It's down on compression (low 6s) so I won't be campaigning the car nationally. It may make appearances at the NJ Pro and Fingerlakes Tour, but it's going to be a local car this year.

More RX-8'S at FLR! We have 3 locally, plus one who comes out from the Buffalo area often.

Not sure if you guys can see this or not, but Hoosier Racing Tire and SCCA did a video feature on DSP (interviewed me at nats) and SCCA just shared it on their facebook page. I wish I would have cleaned my car up a bit more before the interview now LOL.... John's BMW and Mike's RX8 look pretty sharp in various scenes too.

Looking forward to having more of you join us next season! The class really is a ton of fun.

I was joking around a few days ago abouy putting HoHo's on my STX 8 and got told no. Apparently 400lb front springs and 2xxlb rear springs -might- not be enough.

"Technically DSP." lol

Yeah, and revalving.

The car is fully setup for STX (Spark's old car) , so I was entertaining the idea for ***** and giggles. I need to learn to drive better first - I am an ape behind the wheel. Fixing some stuff on the car, doing an Evo School, and focusing on getting better this year. I'm going from a GS FoST to the 8 this year.
