Stickers on cars is :disgust:

I wouldn't mind a Stewart/Colbert or Bartlet presidential sticker, but in the South it might get me shot.
Try:

"I :wub: Rachel Maddow" and see what happens. :lol:

It's got me looking more into iRacing and the like... Year-round driving and in cars that I'd never be able to afford in real life? That might be a good idea.

I'm pretty impressed with the konis and double wishbones on the RX8. It rides better than anything I've ever owned. Stiff chassis = the suspension doesn't have to be so stiff. The only downside to this car is fuel+oil consumption. Seems to be around a quart per 1500 miles and 16 mpg on premium so far. :troywax:

Couldn't you set up an oil-injection system and wouldn't that help with consumption?

I feel like I've seen people do this. Dat 2-stroke wankel.

You're still using the same amount of oil either way, but yeah those systems exist. The off-the-shelf one uses the washer fluid reservoir for oil, so you lose that functionality. Additionally it is only made for the 04-08 engines and it's technically not legal for Street class.

I don't really mind checking the oil, I do that on all of my cars anyway. My S4 actually burned the same amount. It got the same gas mileage too! :derp:

People who pre-mix oil seem to use about the same amount as me. Mixing 0.5 oz/gal = at 15 mpg you're burning 50 oz per 100 gallons in 1500 miles, or about a quart per 1k.

Warmer weather is helping, got 18.3 mpg on the last tank, still driving it like a sports car (which is supposedly good for the engine, I'm not complaining...).

Next weekend (4/27) I'll be doing a full highway tank on the way out to its first national autox event. No chance of winning since RX8s are notoriously terrible at the drag launches in ProSolo, but it'll be a good test event anyway and should be fun too. Hopefully it'll be the first weekend of properly nice weather.

Think you'll break 25 mpg on an all highway tank?

Haha not a chance. I'm hoping to break 20. I did 19.7 on the way home from FL when I bought the car, hoping that the tuneup plus warmer temps gets it to like 22 highway.

Also had the PDR done today, it's hard to tell in photos but the car looks way better. Driver's door, rear passenger door, and right rear fender all had decent size parking lot dents that are 99% gone now.

Dr Colorchip stuff came in the mail today too, so I'm getting close to "done" working+spending on the car.
