  • swaybars ... something

  • Cobalt Friction Sport GT pads

Engine/exhaust:
  • AEM CAI
  • Cobb AP (planned)
  • BHR Ignition System (planned)

Mike,

My car is lowered by ~1" compared to when I was on konis in B-stock. 6.5* caster w/ -2.5* camber is very doable. FWIW, I got -2.0* camber and 4.5* caster when my car was in stock class.

I wasn't sure I could pass sound with the RB header. With the Davesport cat and vibrant resonator I'm already somewhere around 90dB @ 50ft. The header would have made the car MUCH louder.

I'm pretty happy with the car as it currently sits. It's the perfect weekend car/occasional daily driver.

-Chike

The plastic "splash shield" has to be removed to run the AEM/Mazdaspeed intake. This shield must remain in place in STX.

Err, I don't recall a "splash shield" that I removed... Got a picture?

Install instructions: http://www.aemintakes.com/instructio...1-485_inst.pdf

Additionally, how is this "modification" implemented?

On a tangent, I recall having to bend a metal extrusion to the left of the filter element to allow it to clear; what is that thing?

Step Af in the instructions, page 10. Becuase Mazda named the plastic piece the "upper radiator shroud" or something like that, it has to stay in place and cannot be removed or cut/modified to allow the intake pipe to pass through it, because it is part of the cooling system and not the intake system.

Basically you have to route the filter/piping to the same location that the stock intake inlet is/was routed along.

For the most part local level autocrossing shouldn't be that big of a deal, but at National Tours, and Pro Solos you will want to make sure that the intake is rerouted so it's legal as someone will more than likely protest. Better to be 150% safe then sorry.

Now that I finally have some parts to brag about I'll post in this thread.

Model: 2007 6MT RX-8 Sport

Suspension:

* Bilstein PSS9 coilovers
* Hotchkis 27mm MX-5 FSB (3 way adjustable)
* Hotchkis 21mm MX-5 RSB (3 way adjustable) - may swap for a smaller bar if it's too tail happy.

Brakes:

* OEM pads and rotors

Engine/Exhuast:

* Stock Intake (planning on 6" filter with podram and thermal isolation box)
* Stock Exhaust (planning on adding a 2.5" highflow cat with extra resonator in stock midpipe and reusing the b-stock exhaust rear section)

Wheels:

* 17x9 +42 WedsSport TC-005
* 245/40R17 Bridgestone RE-01R (3 years old, fronts are corded)

Body:

* OEM, front undertray has extra screws/hardware in it to hold it together after a stray semi truck tread had its way with it.

Alignment:
* Height F 13.5" / R 13.5"
* Caster: L 8.07 / R 8.12
* Camber: F -2.25 / R -1.6
* Toe F 0 / R 0

Other:

* OEM Cargo Net (the only option my car came with)
* Need Access Port + tune.
* Hail damage to roof, hood, fenders and trunk (adds aerodynamic drag to the top of the car to help with high speed stability... yeah... that's the ticket.)

Got the alignment done. I'm at a lower ride height than initially anticipated but I like the alignment specs. Thanks to Trent (Chris) Harvey with the help deciding what to go with.

If my car is setup as per the details below, how far off of STX pace would I be on say .... a typical 40 second course. I know this isn't scientific and a real answer is impossible, but just give it your best guess.

The winner of last year's National STX class is pretty much local. I'd like to know how far I would be off of him ... if my car were driven by somebody as good as him Of course, I won't be able to attain that time, but it's nice to have goals

Model: 2007 6MT RX-8 base (sport package)

Suspension:

* Koni yellow springs
* OEM Anti Roll bar
* Progress Technology Springs

Brakes:

* OEM pads and rotors

Engine/Exhuast:

* Removal of stock muffler (is this legal?)

Wheels:

* 17x8 +35 5zigen FN01R-C
* 245/40/17 Dunlop Star Spec

Body:

* OEM front lip and rear spoiler

Alignment:

* Caster 6.5
* Camber F -2.0 / R -1.8
* Toe F 1/8" out / R 0

Is this alignment possible on a stock RX8? I had the alignment done about 2.5 years ago, and they could only get (IIRC) about -1.8 front and -1.6 rear.

It's impossible to say, since you don't tell us how your competitors car is configured.

But, assuming he has a decent set of coilovers, 9" rims with one of the top tires, some weight reduction measures, some power adders, and is decently setup, his car will be faster. I won't hazard a guess as to how much.

Having said that, if you are a substantially better driver, you should be able to catch him. If he is even a marginally better driver than you, again assuming a decent STX setup, you are toast.

I will say that you have a decent starting point for local events - enough to have fun on. Just go out, have a good time, and take rides with faster drivers, either in your car or in theirs, to learn about fast driving. Then upgrade the car when you can.

You'll find that most of us are hesitant to comment on "how much slower is my setup" mainly because it's impossible to know and driving technique is so important.

Getting the tread back on topic, I could never get -2.0 camber out of the front of my car with stock springs, but with a lower ride height it's more likely. Not sure how low the PT springs go. I get -2.5 with my car, with a fairly low front ride height.

Deleting the cat-back is legal, I do believe, but it will be very loud and if your region is instituting sound regs (most SCCA clubs are) then you will likely have problems. I'd say the hassle isn't worth it - just focus on your driving instead of removing the cat-back before every event.

Having said that, if you are a substantially better driver, you should be able to catch him. If he is even a marginally better driver than you, again assuming a decent STX setup, you are toast.
Thanks for the feedback George. I would not say he's MY competitor. He's really YOUR competitor, plus everyone else who takes STX seriously. As I said, it's the guy who won STX last year in Nationals, the one who beat Jason Isley in the BMW. He's in my SCCA region, obviously a faster driver with a much faster car.

I was just looking for some type of yardstick to shoot for. Even finishing 1.5 seconds off from him would be awesome. So maybe that's what I will shoot for if I ever make it to an event where he is present.
