they used to claim 255 with manual but than they backed off, now they claim 238. Auto is 197 hp like somebody said.
how do you go from a 3rd gear roll with an auto car??im not sure what rx8's 1st gear runs out especially since its an auto, but i'd think it would downshift into 2nd(or even 1st).
auto rx8 vs manual wrx is no contest when it comes to drag racing.
