    What's the controversy over? If 7 > 8?

    Controversy is over lower HP numbers than they advertised.

    no that lots of people bitch about the rx 8 considering the 7 was such a "legendary" car... personally it was better performance wise but I think the 7 is fucking ugly :rofl:

    I love mine. It's great. Handles AMAZING. gets TONS of attention and i wouldnt give it up .. evar! Slow? Hardly. Sure they underrated the HP but i simply added an intake and im back past 250. It's not slow. It can beat 90% of the cars on the road. I didn't buy it to race. I bought it because i loved the car :isthatacrime:

    edit : yesterday i was driving down the road and i had a car full of people asking me what the retail was on my car and that they loved it. After taxes and interest im paying $42k or so :dunno:

    a stock FD will not smoke an 8. The majority of 7's will smoke a stock 8 because the majority of 7's are not stock ;-)
