  2. Re: This Car only makes 180 HP

    this car is mazda's only sports car(they don't make the rx-7 anymore)and thats exactly what it is... A SPORTS CAR. this car is fast, has good handling, and can be tuned easly. as far as i'm concerned, it's a good car.

    Uh what about the MX5?
     
  4. Re: This Car only makes 180 HP

    MX-5 is a roadster, rather than a sports car.
    IMO, only ROTARY ENGINE POWERED CARS are truly Mazda's sports car. =)
     
  5. Re: This Car only makes 180 HP

    Not totally true. The MX5 is a sportsroadster.
    And the MX3 V6 is a nice lill sportscar too.

    I am unsure if all of u realise this, but there are 2 versions of this car. normally the hp at the wheels are relatively less than the fly. but could the 2 versions be the possibility of such a huge different in HP difference?

    more info of the 2 versions is on http://autozine.kyul.net/html/Mazda3.htm#RX8

    Cheap version
    Power 210 hp (JIS)
    207 hp (SAE)
    192 hp (DIN)

    Normal version(high power)
    250 hp (JIS)
    247 hp (SAE)
    240 hp (DIN)

    i dun fully credit the validity of some of the comments made there, but the majority of that post are completely believable.

  8. i�ve driven many of these and the torque at low rpm is pretty low because it hasn�t got a turbo
     
  9. the handling is nice tho, it wont fight back! u know what i mean
