    [​IMG]What is with the lip? Why are the Japs putting this on every sports car now? Do they think it looks good? What the hell is wrong with them?

    I'm guessing front diffuser serves an actual aerodynamic purpose by providing downforce, thereby increasing grip/handling at higher speeds.
     
  4. The black panel at the top of the grille looks like a mustache. God only knows why they would put that there. Maybe the designer is a fan of Hitler.

    That's the bit I was talking about. I could care less about the diffuser.

    You don't need a lot of torque at the crank when you can stay in 1st gear up to 55mph.

    :werd: I remember when I first saw the RX-8, I hated the thing. Then a few months later I owned one. Now I am itching for another one if the actually do put in the X16 Renesis engine. :run:

    Low Torque * High RPM / Low Gearing = High Torque.

    Dumbass.

    Oh, I liked the RX-8 ever since I heard about the concept car ten damn years ago. It was one of the few cars that got better each time I saw the latest revision. Until now. That lip looks dumb as hell, even if it does lower insurance costs by providing a non-painted surface at the front of the car to absorb bumps.

    low torque + low rpm + low gearing = low torque

    So go buy a Dodge Charger and get the fuck out of my thread.

    Just don't try to turn a corner with it.
