yeah im not really a big fan of racing a C class, but an rx8 pulled up on a straight rolling at about 40 and took the right away of revvin up, i quickly dropped gears on the sport shift and punched it. We were pretty even until about 60 mph. I pulled away quite significantly and soon observed him in my rear view. I must say, the rx8 is a disgrace. The auto(197 hp) is simply ridiculous. But that car certainly CAN handle. Anyway, thats my story..
