    Hey i am looking into getting one but the closest I have come to being in one is the 360 views on the mazda webpage haha. On a scale of 1-10 what would you give it considering price. By the way did u test the 6 speed or 4? Thanks
     
  3. RE:

    i just got to test drive one of these too, but its more fun for me cuz im only 15, but its awsome being able to spin the tires going into 2nd and 3rd, i didnt redline 3rd to see if it was the same in 4th, becuse 3rd redlines at about 90mph, i wasnt going that fast, but supra man did you notice that in the driver seat your feet were angled to the left, but in the pasanger seat they angeled to the right? im not sure if in astralia (spelling) your cars are right hand drive, in that case it would be the other way around, but did you notice that at all? all and all i love this car, hands down the best back seat i have ever been in, but supraman let me know if you noticed that odd driving position too.

    Don't buy one just yet. My brother is waiting until the Twin Turbo comes out in 2004 to buy his.

  7. engine swap

    Imagine this car with the lancer evo engine. hell yeah.
     
  8. Re: engine swap

    i personally think this would kill a lancer...and just imagine the power difference it the engines had the same displacement

    Good CALL! go get a 5.7L v8 and do some work. When you hit the pedal and your front end starts going up and your frame starts twisting then you will know what its like.
     
  10. Re: engine swap

    Personally you're wrong.
     
  11. Re: We Just Test Drove One!!!!!

    how was the ride. I only wish i could go out and buy one of these beasts
     
  12. Re: We Just Test Drove One!!!!!

    Well I sat in one at an auto show and personally have played around w/ the clutch.( my mom loves this car)I also rode in one and its low tourqe makes it not so great going, but its still not all that bad. I would still not buy one until the "illeged" twin-turbo version comes out.
     
  13. Re: engine swap

    never!
     
  14. Re: We Just Test Drove One!!!!!

    I swear the RX-8 has the coolest design, considering that most 4 seated sports cars have to pull down the front seats so the passengers can sit down and Mazda seems to have found a way to eliminate this, making it easier for the passengers.
     
  15. Re: We Just Test Drove One!!!!!

    I own one....
     
  16. Re: We Just Test Drove One!!!!!

    This thing is Overpriced.
     
  17. Re: We Just Test Drove One!!!!!

    PLEASE!
    Tell me what you get for the same money!

    Let's see, the one that I was looking at was 35G's + Dealer markup.

    27G's for a base model with manual, If you want leather, you automatically have to get a $4000 option package.

    Brand new Mustang Cobra Costs just as much as one of these set up the way I want it.

    Mustangs suck? Maybe so, but this is 390 horsepower worth of car, for the same price as a 250hp rotary car both set up the way I want.

    For just under 30G's (29.7G), I can get a Mach 1 Mustang, with 305hp, again setup the way I want it.

    Premium Mustang GT is 25G's, and is less than any RX-8 Model, and gets more horsepower, with comparable, possibly better performance.

    Base Nissan 350Z with a 6-speed Transmission is less than a base RX-8 with 6 speed Transmission.

    Hell a Neon SRT-4 outperforms this.

    Subaru WRX is less than a base model, the STI with what I want in it, is less than an RX-8 with what I want in it.

    The Lancer Evo, is under 2 Grand more, but, when optioned out to the way I'd want one, It's less than the RX-8 Optioned out the way I'd want it.

    There's more. This isn't including cars from say, 2002 when this came out, which would then include the Camaro and Firebird in their final production years that around the same price with more performance.

    Note: Did you know Canadians are paying almost 40G's for these bad boys? That's 30G's USD's.


    Again, OVERPRICED. This should be 30G's LOADED. Add an intercooled turbo option then you can bring it up to, and past 35G's.
