Parts, Frame, Drive Train, Sections - What's Under the 8's Skin

Been doing a lot of research on the 8, and have been looking for pictures of the frame or other parts. This is just some of the stuff that I have been able to find. Now its easier to find pictures when taking on a subject.

I figured that some of it could help other people out see what is under our cars skin, and to have it all located in one place. Add more if you have any I missed! If you find any mistakes I made please correct me.






I do not take any credit for these pictures, just organized them into one place.

Awesome post. If you can get your hands on the RX-8 book it really goes into detail in regards to why they engineered what they did to build the 8.
