      Needs built, common Daddy rob surely theres enough spares laying around

  • DirtyDrifting

    You should get an rx8 and do a turbo hybrid renesis build. Also add peripheral porting as well.

    70s Mazda is where its really at. And 80s and 90s..

  • Suspicious0ne

    From personal experience from owning an RX-8. Leave it stock. Wheels, suspension and exhaust is basically what you're limited too. If you want power and a turbo drop 20k and build a Hybrid Renisis 13B like Mazdatrix(google it)

  • rx7racerca

    Non-runner RX-8 - so yet another RX8 LS swap? Or maybe go LF V6 for a little lighter, revvier engine that actually works? It's a shame both the body and motor are rough though, even though 8s are great cars. I do have a question, how'd they get the car up on the top deck front on the car hauler? Do they have winches?

    I bought an RX8 with 110 psi per rotor. 40th anni with like 40k miles on it....BHR coil upgrade, brand new plugs. good battery. drove it 15 minutes to go to the grocery store and it had hot start issues in the middle of winter. i sold it 3 weeks later. never again. But damn do they look good.

    You should get one of those rotor mini truck like frome the car show called roadkill

  • MrKelenek

    whats the best thing to do with an RX8 ? buy a stock one that is running fine from an hairdresser that has been maintained at Mazda for ever.... than strip it to the chassis, put a cage in it, put an exhaust on it, put a huge ass GT wing and bolt some canards on the front. tadaaa ! Track car

    Before the project is finished Rob will have admitted it's not that bad that he actually kinda like it 😂😂 that would definitely be a classic Rob 👌

  • stage3muppet

    I’m no Karen rob but if you even joked about pissing on my car I’d jump on roof of your car and take a shite on the hood ffs 😂😂👍🏻 Even if it was a piece of shite

  • HotGritz910

    Hey Rob you do understand that's the best handling car in your garage right? I agree the renensis is the down fall of the car..but they make near the same power as a 3rd gen in stock trim..

  • Sasha M
    Sasha M

    Cool kinda exciting to see an rx8

  • RoydonA

    All you have to do after every modification is ensure its still safe to drive and it’ll be better than any of Rob’s builds.

    I made it exactly to 3:07 before I had to finally stop and comment. Rob I love ya. Your videos helped inspire me to start doing my own work. My beater rx8 looks almost identical to Isaiah's. Its red and has seats. My seats are red and black though. That 8 gunna carry the channel. 😘

    Ha ha very funny bro. Seriously tho I believe the rx8 is misunderstood. I love the rx series cars and it's engine. I personally hope and praying a new rx does come out. Rx8 is a great platform for a daily. As for a new rx I would just do a hybrid system to pass both performance and emissions. Maybe a baby bmw i8 or a Prius like model with better driving dynamics

  • Devil2jz

    Isaiah is gonna 4 rotor swap that car overnight do some pulls and put the 4 rotor back in the rx7 before morning.

  • Tom Y

    Well, its is a facelift S2. Slightly better, how come US never got the uprated interior though?

  • vanepico

    Doesn't the renesis stock make the same power as the turbo RX7 stock though? Shame it's one of the highest road tax brackets here in the UK, I'd love to own one at some point.

    It’s like Rob built a cloning device in his CNC machine and made 2 extra Robs just to laugh at Isaiah

  • MrTilbin

    RX8s are great. For everything but that engine. Seriously! I like everything about them except the frail Renisis. I was looking for one myself as a DD but found a screaming deal on a 2nd gen speed3. My vote is GTR swap it! Everyone does LS, 2JZ, and RB.

    If youve got the spare housings, Id love to see the renesis exhaust ports welded up, and for this to use housings with peripheral exhaust ports (normal exhaust ports). The renesis inlet ports are good. Its just the exhaust thats garbo. So you could make a best of both worlds engine out of parts.

    I love the RX8. That car was the one I first used to beat Razor with in Need For Speed Most Wanted when I was a kid. Ended up buying one in 2014 when I was in high school. That car is the reason I discovered Rob Dahm. Ended up selling it to Full Function Engineering. I believe they still own it. I will own another RX8 one day.
