  1. 2005 Mazda RX-8 Shinka Special Edition

    Mazda started Job1 on the Shinka Special Edition today, for a total production run of 2150 RX-8's. The some of the features of the special edition include the Black Cherry Exterior, special bright finish wheels, and bright-chrome head and tail light fixtures. On the inside, parchment leather seats and more use of piano black accents provide a look and feel of luxury. Looks aren't all that changed on this RX-8, however. Chassis improvements include:

    Suspension cross member injected with foaming urethane improving performance and ride quality
    Unique Suspension tuning with thicker 14mm damper shafts (up from 12mm)

  16. Its pretty and shiny.
     
  17. snub: yes, since all sports car are just about straight line performance.

    it can hit sixty in 5.9 seconds. How fast is your car?
     
  18. dude...look at his avatar. he has an rx7 too. he's kidding.
     
  19. A lot of truth is said in jest.
     
  20. Not bad.
     
  21. RX8?
     
  22. Don't pull the handling bullshit on me because the RX8 is too soft to have an edge on most any of its competitors in handling. That's not to say that it has a well balanced suspension, but in terms of actual grip, the RX8 gets its ass handed to it even by the 350Z. Have you ever seen an RX8 on a real track? It's really not at home. The tires suck, the brakes fade, and the car doesn't have enough straight-line oomph nor the powerband to be considered a car that's "at home" on a track.

    By the way my car goes from 0-60 in a hell of a lot better than 5.9 seconds, and I know for a fact that it won't trap less than 100mph in the 1/4 mile, something that even the supercharged RX8 couldn't imagine.

    At first I was kidding, but now that I think about it the RX8 just isn't a sports car. It's something, but a sports car it isn't.
     
  23. i place it in the same category as the rx7
