    did not know you had this!!!

    have rx-8 - still got the rotary in it at 55k
    yep! she drove all of 20km this summer as of today, we moved and I just got back from a week on the road with my curret boss so I really have not had time to enjoy it this summer yet.

    good on you for the rx-8, premixed the renesis are really not that bad. wait till they are at temp to flog em'. With decent maintenance you'll have problems elsewhere before the motor starts giving you trouble.

    Here in quebec they are dirt fucking cheap too, decent exemple go for like 5k$ canadian...
    IIRC the main issue people ran into with RX-8's were the transmission going kaboom.
    the main thing nowadays is bad maintenance since the cars are cheap turning into low compression. A well done engine refresh by a shop that knows what it's doing can be worth about as much as another used rx-8.

    My local rotary shop (we have two in Canada, one in Alberta and one on the north shore of Montréal) have been doing more and more Renesis rebuild, they also machine the rotors to put rx7 seals as they are stronger and last longer.

    The manual transmission is mostly fine at the stock power level, and increasing power on that engine is very, very hard as it's basically strung like a thighrope for emission reasons. You can't easily add boost without major work and you might get 5hp over stock with regular tuning. You can free up a bit more with free flowing exhaust, but in places where emissions are checked that won't fly as you get alot of raw fuel and oil out of the exhaust without recirculation and good catalyzers.

    I don't know about the auto gearbox though, they where terrible in rx7s of basically all vintage so I suppose they where shit in the rx8 too.

    A bunch of GR86 reviews today. I guess some review embargo lifted. Spoiler: it's nice.

    Looks real nice. Good to see Toyota/Suburu are holding the faith with Mazda down at the reasonably price rear wheel drive naturally aspirated field. If only Honda would join back in for the last hurrah.

    Very much looking forward to this. From what i've heard, the GR86 is approximately 2 - 5 seconds faster when performing trackwork than the Golf R on same tyres ... which is an utterly surprising amount given the power and torque delta and holds up well against the Audi RS 3, which is by no means a slouch.

    If they add a supercharger option to the GR86 like the good old days, it will be a giant killer.

    Two months since I posted those GR86 videos and still no word on options or availability, other than "November". Bah.
