250 horses with the kit most cars have more than that stock. the only good thing about it is that the kit is kinda cheap. personally i think the car and the kit suck.

yeah a guy i just went to school with had a turbo kit on his RX8 and it was slow; it was in the 14s. it was the greddy kit. those engines cant take much boost stock so there is little gain from the turbo. i just dont understand why anyone would waste that money when they could get a 350Z, STi, EVO, G35, or GTO that would all waste an RX8. RX8s are for girls. even a mazdaspeed MX-5 would eat a turbo RX8.

I believe Top Gear tested the RX8 and it ran just as fast as 350Z on the track anyone have that vid still? I like both rides by the way.

Here is the link: Top Gear RX8

well i can tell you first hand ive waxed rx-8's up and down the road at least by 2 cars and im almost positive it would be the same story on the road course. and im pretty shure a m3 would kick its ass even more than my car stock from a dig. i heard that they cant even do burn outs and to top it off its ugly as fuk. and personally i think its a disgrace to the rx name

well see its funny ur talkin shit on an rx8, u know what i might not beat u in a straight line....u get my car n ur car on a track, ill mollywop u in turns, u cant beat 50/50 weight distribution, besides now adays....... g35's, evos, stis, everyone n there mom has one now, there like honda civics i see em everywhere, i dont see too many rx8s, n
one of u was sayin it cant do burnouts, if one of ur buddies has one tell him to do turn off his DSC, ( Dynamic Stability Control), n he does that by pressin the DSC button n holdin it for like 5 seconds, until he sees that yellow icon right under his tac light up, like when he tries to burnout or goes in turns really fast,n honestly whoever buys a greddy kit is an idiot, those kits do suck, thats why im goin to UTI, n im gonna buy my own turbo kit prolly Speed Force Racing, or PTP's turbo kit, install it myself n tune it myself, n be pushin almost 400 to the wheels, with daily driver capabilities.... so u need to learn where u get ur info from.

Not everybody buys a car just because its the fastest one in that price range. Because there will always be a faster car that is cheaper/expensive then yours any where. So there is no point just making fun of the rx8 owners because there are faster car then them on the striaght where they can either keep up or burn the other cars in a track.
