From 4th through 6th well over 200Kms
I was on his bumper all the way and had to tap off a few times
then he moved over to the left so i passed   ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/wink

Re: Xrsi vs Rx8

yep, my cousing owns one, absolutly no power and torque below 7000rpm lol.

its a fast car but you really need to know how to drive it, you have to rev the shit out of it, and most owners are afraid to do that

Re: Xrsi vs Rx8

Nice runs there,
But there's a low powered version and a hi powered one.
The low powered one has 16'"s and makes  197 hp (147 kW) while the high powered one is  238 hp (177 kW) with fat 18"s.

It also depends on how you drive it!!
Not bad fro a 1.3L

Thanks guys!
this one is the low powered indeed but 147kw is still impressive.
Would like to run one from the line and see how it goes ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/biggrin2
