Talking Rx8 Newbie........

Well I bought my RX-8 yesterday after selling my beloved Subaru WRX , so far I love the RX-8's interior!!! it's a lot better than the Subbie......the power is there but since I'm taking it easy on it for the break-in then I havent really compared that part with my old car......now on the handling on Dry roads is defently similar but on the rain I think the Subbie get's the 2 thumbs UP on this part. The looks of the RX-8 are awsome specially in the Titanium with All Black interior.....I'm new to this forum so I will be checking things out very often and will be posting pictures soon of my new baby.

P.S: Any one that is a member of the SCCA please send me a PM with INFO about next gatherings or Autocross events....I used to Autocross my old car....need to start doing the same on my new RX-8.

I know AlexCisneros is a great scca contact. As for the WRX vs the 8 in the dry, they can be very competitive and were in the recent autocross I went to.

But in the wet, you really see the wrx and evo8 typically running much faster.

Welcome to the forum FX-RX8! AlexCisneros is definitely the guy to contact as far as autox and HPDE events. I think the next autox is Oct 24th. It will be cool for you to meet us and represent with the RX8 crew.

Yeah! I might get out of bed on time next time and make the autocross too!

But dont talk to Alex. He will talk your ears off and you'll have this strange urge to start buying stuff. It's the work of the devil. The devil I say!

Hmmm... Wonder if my highflow cat is here......

Forgot to add that there's plenty of auto-x stickies with pretty much all the SoFla events and some others. Local group's website is at autox.carlc.com

FX-RX8: Where in Weston ya at? My boss lives over in Weston Hills and my office is gonna be moving to that complex right off I75 and Arvida (I think).

I dont think he has the most. The problem is he gets others to spend their money.

Yeah Jon, you have the most(You Bastard). However, I think Alex uses everybody as a testbed for new products. :D
