What???
Fellow Rotor fans gather now for our daily prayer.....

As I lay rubber down the street,
I pray for traction I can keep,
But if I spin and start to slide,
Please dear god protect my sweet ride.

Amen

right t o. I flipped my precious over in a storm. Only just rolled onto its roof, wasn't speeding or doing silly stuff. Wasn't watching, hit a large puddle and aquaplaned mounted a 90° gutter and the back launched into the air and came down at a right angle to the motion of travel and... plop on its roof. Unfortunately it died..... engine is fine hahaha.

As I have said to you privately before mate, glad your okay! That is what counts in the end Rohan.

P.S. - You know, that REW engine will fit 'very' nicely in a FD... of course, an RX8 would also be a sound choice. :wink:

Sorry to hear. Accidents happen in a split second and sometimes can prove to be devastating. Glad to hear that you are safe.

Hope you are able to get back into another Rx8 again

Even though I don't know you its good to hear your ok

u fortunate for all us current owners the rx8's are very affordable especially if your not concerned about the engine. Even though I like the series 1 more, you could jump into a GT with your sweet engine.

Good luck

LOL Cliffo, you could cut the top off an RX8... but it will not be able to be registered, and on the track (especially in the local Time Attack Comp) it will be classified in the performance / modified class (i.e. which, to say the least, will make it tough for you to be competitive!).
