    What's the reserve capacity on your battery? It's mighty small (at least in relation to the tray). Weight is the enemy. hehehe.

    thanks! I've never ran it in a drag strip... I'm mainly an auto-x/drift guy. it's not a very powerful car, I doub't it would be a threat on a .25 mile. My main goal is to lighten it up as much as possible while maintaining streetability/reliablity (it's my daily driver), setting the suspension to take corners aggressively w/o upseting the 50/50 weight distribution and free up some ponies and take advantage of the 9K redline.

    Nice ride. Do you know that there is a Rota office in Hayward? So you don't have to wait until you go to the Philippines for the rims. Just watch the engine on that RX8 I have heard that some owners are having to get a complete engine change(courtesy of Mazda) because of leaks in the rotary seals. I wanted to buy one also but after hearing the seal problems I opted out of it.
