As the title says,  Free RX-8.

Reality has sunk in and this just isn't a project I'm excited enough to put the effort into.  It's exactly as dropped off by Gumby and NoCones, with the addition of FREE Hoosier Slicks now inside.

Come and get it.

Here's a link to more information

and another link to even more.

I once saw an RX8 with a Ford 300 shoehorned into the engine bay.

Would love to do that with this.

Where is this again?

 

Is it free with the intent of challenge goodness?  Or, just free?

 

This could help me lower my challenge rx8 budget...

The car is currently located in my driveway on the far East side of Indianapolis.  Unless the former owner's chime in otherwise, there are no strings attached to this one.  I haven't bonded with it as I anticipated, and I'm pursuing other automotive things (reference my fix and flip build thread).  If Mr_Asa passes, it's yours

Which moved between us more? This, the $1000 GLH or the blue 60's Toyota (Corona)?

LOL.

No time, and bigger fish to fry.  Would still love to do something stupid with it, though.

I didn't read the links, but I seem to remember there is no title? Is that correct?

Yep.  No title. But there were reasonable reasons to believe it is NOT stolen. Just a "too complicated circumstances to get a title" situation.

I am aware of no expectations on the fate of this RX8 other then "not in Gumbys Driveway".   

I definitely feel the reconsidering projects energy.  Sorry it didn't work out hope it leaves quickly.

You're welcome to borrow my newly acquired tow dolly.  (Actually my wife would love you for that, because with the dolly gone, it'll slow down my car collecting)

I'll just drop this link here, for anyone interested in challenge-priced adapter plates for various engines to the rx8 6speed.

Hrm.  Wonder if they make an adapter for SBF?  Looks like this will handle some high HP.  Wonder what kind of torque it can take.

Anything is an adapter with enough welder.

Unfortunately you are starting to learn why there aren't more V8 swapped rx8s running around. The rest of the car really isn't setup to handle high torque "low" rpm motors.

Carbon fiber driveshaft, 4.high ratio diff. All great for a rotary engine, less so for a turbo V8.

I really think the rx8 deserves a lightweight v6 or maybe a kswap.

Does it have the cloth seats available?  Stock radio?

 

If so, I might be able to rent a trailer and drive up and back in a weekend.
