Set up out the box is fine.
Start off with a 18-19t pinion with no timing on the RX8 and go from there.
Monitor temps on motor and ESC.
Investing in fans for the motor and ESC is a good idea with onroad.
I use these and it's really incredible how much air they move and how much cooler my motor and ESC stay
Only thing I recommend is before installing the fans is add some shoe-goo to the 2 wires coming off the fan. Dabb a little goo where the wires come off the fan onto the fan housing otherwise its really easy to yank the wire off the fan.
Order a extra fan and mount it ontop of the rx8(remove shitty stock fan) and run power directly from the RX.
Here's a pic of my car as an example
