Indeed the car is just as it is a piece of masterwork. But today more people are getting sensitive for option parts, even if they do not provide the extra performance the parts still makes the car to look good. Also Xray has noticed it and is comming with many parts which do not provide more performance.

I'm old school... I like the plastic, just learned how to get them right after a lot of practice and don't want to change.

But I really like the idea of the new alu shocks!

Hi there,

could somone please give me the rationale behind the concept of the front bumper where you can cut the side pieces out or leave them closed? What is happening from an aerodynamic point of view?

Thanks, Stefan

@Stefan,
when you cut them out normally you have a little bit more sterring

@ all

also completly killed the bearings on the rearshaft.. so always have some of them in your partbox ...

kind regards Tom

Huh? If the front bumper it is more closed it will have more advantage of the ground effect so I would say the best steer is with the best ground effect.

@Roelof

Yes your right but I tried it and the effect was that in my feel there was more steering with the parts cut out ... no idea to explain it

Why the bearings are so short live I don't know ... Normaly on the other cars I repllaced those bearings all 2 races just to be shure but on the Rx8 they failed on the first race +- 200 laps done with the car.

kind regards Tom
