Last night one of my buddy's was having people over at his house. I was explaining whats been done to my cobalt, we took it out for a spin to hit some corners. It did amazing and even my buddy was surprised. When we got back he let me take his RX-8 out. I ended up being disappointed in the way it preformed along the same path we took the balt. Then he hopped in to show me his skills haha (still prefer my car). When we got back I got jumped out and just looked at my car with a huge smile . (I didn't bust his chops don't worry)
I know there NOT the same class cars. Ones a FWD 2.2L cylinder 1/2 the price with some parts on it, others a Stock RWD 1.3 Rotatory.
The RX-8 was still very fun to drive. Pretty funny going from a car that red lines at 6.4x then jumping in a car that red lines at 9s
Too bad he wouldn't let me drift around. (Trying to conserve his tires) because that would have been a blast
my ex had an rx8 and stock for stock rx-8 handle's better then we put coilovers on and hers still handled better cant argue rx-8 is actually consider a top handling vehicle for stock.. very fun to drive we used to go out drifting as a date.
