Hey Guys imma newbie to the forums but ive been reading and learning from u guys for many months now! I have a 05 STi with a catback and intake but nothing more...recently i was travelling on Route 4 heading towards NYC when a Mazda RX8 tried to race me. I first thought he has gotta be joking with me but this car was ****ing insane. It looked like he had a exhaust system on it but he raped me through traffic and i didnt stand a chance. Do these mazda rx8's actually have enuf to hold out against us in traffic??? i thought my drivin sucked but a buddy of mine who is experienced racer and owns a 06 Evo also encountered this same 'rogue' RX8 on the same route and got handed to him. He followed the Rx8 to some street but it turned off somewhere. Anyone else from this area know of this car and what the hell it has???? pls shed some light as im mad interested and confused at the same time. Thanks guys!

Rx8...

The RX8 must have turbo kit. Thats about the only mod I see taking on a wrx. The rx8 has to reach fairly high rpm to hit its power band.

I hate sitting in three hour traffic on route 4 when one of you idiots stuffs your car into the guardrail. Be a man and take it down to Englishtown.

+10000

there are people who are always ready to mess with me in traffic (because thats all there is here in NY/NJ...traffic) i ignore them and let them drive like idiots. i value life and have seen what car accidents can do.

if you can afford the insurance and the car you are driving..you can afford some track time.

the rx-8 has no torque,high strung, and don't respond well to mods. the only way to get power out of them is FI.

they look very purdy though.

Welcome to the forum. If you enjoy street racing your STi on rt 4 and in general then I suspect you and/or your car aren't going to be with us for long. If you're going to drive, learn to do it responsibly before you hurt yourself and/or somebody else. How would you like to go to jail for the next 20 years because you killed somebody while street racing? Or paying a huge settlement because you hurt somebody and being poor your entire life because of it? That's what will happen if you continue doing this. The legal system doesn't take kindly to people acting stupid and hurting or killing other people. /lecture

they look very purdy though.
Sometimes yes and sometimes no. I don't know if it's the color or what. :confused:
