2007 STX Prepped Mazda RX-8

Year: 2007

Model: RX-8
Price: $12500
Mileage: 86000
Color: Silver
Private or Dealer Listing: Private Listing
Location (US State/Canada/Int): KY



Time to jump ship….. My desire for tinkering has gotten the best of me so I’m selling off my STX RX-8 and building a prepared car.
This is a base model, no option, sport package car. No sunroof, no traction control, nothing. It is the lightest option package possible. It is very well prepared and definitely capable of bringing home the hardware. It has taken FTD several times locally and I have trophied at National events in it. I ended up 17th out of 58 cars at Solo Nationals this year. I’m a big guy and definitely not the best driver. I’m sure a good driver could put this car in the top spots.


Details:
Asking Price: $12, 500
Location: Fisherville, KY (Right outside Louisville)
Year: 2007
Mileage: 86,000 (approx)
VIN: JM1FE173970213802
Trim Level: Base Sport (6mt, cloth seats, no sunroof)
Weight: 2,780 lbs @ 1/8 tank



Vehicle History:
This car was originally purchased in NC and run locally/nationally in CS. The original owner moved to IN a few years back and I picked it up from him there.
Vehicle Condition:
The car has been mostly garage kept, and is in pretty good condition. It does have some dings here and there and some cone rash, but overall it’s pretty clean. No rust whatsoever.
Car has been really well maintained. Mobil 5000 oil, Redline Tranny and Diff fluid.

Engine:

The chassis has ~86k miles, and a NEW ENGINE was installed by Mazda 9,000 miles ago. Compression is strong and the car is extremely quick.
• Cobb Accessport Tuner – Absurd amount of time tuning to optimize for autocross.
• STX legal modified AEM cold air intake
• Lightweight battery
• Custom long tube header
• 3” 100 cell Cat
• Custom lightweight 3” exhaust that exits out the center. (V-band connections)
• New coil packs and plugs (spares included)

Suspension:
• Bilstein PSS9 coilovers with custom rate Swift springs
• Offset UCA bushings
• Hotchkis MX-5 sway bars front and rear, also have stock bars with additional holes added for adjustability
• Adjustable end links
• New lower control arms and hardware

Wheels/Tires/Brakes:
• (Unobtainium) 17x9 Wedsport TC005 wheels (15 lbs)
• 245/40-17 BFG Rival S
• Stock 18x8 wheels with Continentals
• Hawk HP+ pads

Misc/Extra
• Stock cloth sport seats lowered as much as physically possible. Foam removed and custom rear mounts. (sliders still functional)
• Custom ultra-lightweight trailer hitch (~3lbs) that exits through rear bumper
• All stock parts that I have will be included with the car.

Here's a link to my video from the east course at Nationals this year. I apologize for the sound quality, I forgot to plug in my external microphone.

Willing to take offers, I'm ready to dive into the prepared build and could use some $$/Garage Space.

The car is able to get it done!
