    hey, snap. Our lemons car is an '84 GSL-SE with a 13b. It's fast! 2000lbs without driver, too.

    It is a sad decision, but I do agree - they sound dreadful with a race exhaust. I swear, someone must have run a $10M, 2-year R&D program to develop the most irritating exhaust sound possible.

    A month ago u jumped into a 84 RX7. I had an 82. My memory was how high and well it revved. But I must say I was kind of disappointed. It only rev to 7k.

    Memory is not that reliable.

    Here's a little love for the rotor-heads among us.

    Mazda PR Tweets that the Company is Working on New Rotary Engine-Powered Model(s) - Carscoop

    "Thank you so much for all your supportive messages concerning the RX-8 and the rotary engine! We are also excited. Mazda is aiming to achieve a breakthrough with the ‘Skyactiv’ technology, and we are zealously working on new models to house the next generation rotary engine. Thank you for your continued support!"
