2004 Mazda RX-8 GT

Man, I loved this car. I’ve driven a lot of cars in anger - none of them loved to be beat on as much as this thing. Completely neutral cornering, always did what you expected it to do and never, ever bit you. Want lift throttle oversteer? Go in smooth, unload it, done. Want trail brake oversteer? Brake late, turn in, done. Want corner exit oversteer? Keep the revs up, and tip in the loud pedal. Want it to hook back up? Roll out of the throttle and she tucks back in line like a champ. I’d still have it if I wasn’t forced to trade it after it stranded me 700 miles from home. And yes, it burnt oil. :)
