Texas RX8 (1.3L Rotary)

I started this project in June of 2010. I will keep this short and sweet. The objective is to build a N/A RX8 that breaks 200mph. Some of these mods are for AutoX and Track meets, and others will be for Bonneville.

These are the original Seller Photos:http://s151.photobucket.com/albums/s155/docbeech/RX8%20Dealers%20Photos/

These are the photos shortly after I cleaned her up. She was a disaster inside and out:http://s151.photobucket.com/albums/s155/docbeech/2004%20GT%20RX8%20Sunlight%20Silver/

Heres after the lights were replaced. Red led interior lights are whats used along with the illuminated shifter. All of which are JDM OEM.

This is after the calipers were repaired. The original owner painted them red, all I did was fix them because he used spray paint and ruined them. The brake pads were replaced with Hawks Performance+. The Brake Lines were replaced with Steel after they had a ton of failure.
