Before buying the STi, I looked at the RX8. It's a beautiful and well built car, but it is just too slow for the price. Kind of a chick's car too.

Come on guys, you will never put bus lengths on RX-8s and they aren't "slow" compared to a RL, sure the RL is faster it can run mid to low 14s the RX-8 runs high 14s, no bus lengths will be put on an RX-8 with a stock RL if they are actually trying, the RL is a faster car, but its still a decent race. I raced one with my wrx last week, in third gear i was able to pull on him in 4th gear we were dead even, i have a few little mods but nothing that is going to make a huge difference.

the higher output version is the only one worth racing, which was actually overrated from the factory. the RX8 is a nice car, but they have to wound out to get anywhere, which makes them harder to drive good compared to our cars which have torque all over. don't expect to out drive them in the twisties though, it's just a better platform to begin with for that.

What model RX8 was it? 197 HP base, or the 238hp engine you raced? Would a RL beat the 238hp RX8? Just curious.
In a straight line yes we have a slight edge

Maybe you should look and see who said they put a bus length on the RX8, it sure as hell wasn't us. It was troll boy... read a little closer before your traditional 'reality check' on us. No one here claimed anything like a bus length...

Didn't mean for that to sound quite so 'obnoxious' either....
