Default my "slow 6" vs rx8

On my way home from work today, caught a red light (left hand turn with 2 turning lanes) with a white rx8. I had the inside lane and he had the outside lane.

I knew he was going to go for it, and sure enough even before the light turned green he was off. By the time i made the the turn and was going straight (i have no sway bars, so cornering is slow lol) he already had 1.5-2 cars on me and was WOT. So i it it in first gear at about 15. Shiftng at only 4500-5000 by the end of 2nd gear i had already passed him by a car, hit 3rd, and was starting to go wot when i noticed that he had already pretty much given up, so i just put it into 4th, dropped back down to 45mph. He kept it even slower (speedlimit was 45) to make sure he didnt have to get up t my door. I kind of wanted to talk to him, but oh well.

Lmao, Fazm. I was about to start calling BS on a V6 S197 making up that much lost ground and whipping a RX8............ then I looked at who posted the kill, lol!

That RX8 was prolly wondering wtf just happened.

I'm so glad I don't live in AZ, that'd be a foolish death of mine.

Foolish of me of course because sometimes I'm a dumbass that likes to take out a V6 screwin around with me. But you'd embarass me so much.

Do those RX8s even have any potential to be fast, or at least a low 13 car? I doubt it, but I was wondering if any of you know something about them I don't.

RX8 are not as great as RX7, this new rotary engine is wortless even FI according to what i have read. But i would imagine just like with any car you drop the cash im sure you can make it fast
