Regular Car Reviews: 2006 Mazda RX-8

Published on Feb 3, 2014 1,406,602 views

So many Mazdas of all shapes and sizes,
We did the Miata Which is why this franchise is.
The RX-8 was an improved RX-7,
which had been discontinued since 2011.

It came in all colors It came in all shades,
turd brown, magenta And gunmetal gray.
Naturally aspirated with side exhaust ports,
the engine was the 210 horsepower sort.

They said it was sleek.
They said it was classy.
But it was really just built
on an MX-5 chassis.

Its style was developed through design competitions,
in America and Europe,
in the Mazda tradition.
And also Japan,
let us not forget them.
Like America's forgotten about Robin Wright Penn.

The car was designed by Ikuo Maeda.
A man who loved cars,
and maybe paella.

The 50:50 front-rear
weight distribution
makes this the official car of Hitman: Absolution.

Your friends all will marvel,
while drinking their Coors,
when you open the freestyle suicide doors.
They provide easy access
to seats in the back.
Since drunkenly banging
takes all of one's tact.

A symbol of money culture made manifest:
That's how to describe the RX-8 best.
For this is what Mazda intended to purvey
to make you feel King of all you survey.

But this is a shadow?
A trick of the mind?
A king of the road?
Why, you are no such kind!

This car attracts bros.
This car attracts schmoozers.
This car attracts winners,
bambizzlers
and losers.

This car seats much lower than old Honda Fits.
But it feels like you're sagging like elderly tits.

Headlights don't go up,
nor do they go down.
They do not make noises.
They don't make a sound.

As a coupe it's not high,
nor is it too low,
but we cannot fit rollbars
for track day,
my bro.

    Remigus Ker 2 года назад Ah, the RX-8. The displacement of an inline-4, the power of a V6, the fuel consumption of big block V8.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 1 месяц назад @Jonathan Villalba The only way to get 500 reliable horsepower in a RX-8 is with a LS V-8 swap... The Renesis was a notorious weak and disappointing powerplant that lacks torque or any real power. The reason for the high fuel consumption is simple... the Mazda 13b-MSP Renesis engine has a true displacement of 3.9 liters and is so inefficient that most of the energy in the fuel is simply wasted out the tailpipe... truly obsolete technology that is no longer manufactured anywhere in the world today
  • Jonathan Villalba
    Jonathan Villalba 1 месяц назад Driving this car like there are 500 HP between the sole of your foot and the pavement are the reason for high fuel comsumption but thats required to keep the carbon build up in check. I like driving like that but I dont like spending a lot on gas so this one is not the car for me.

    Darren McClellan 4 месяца назад @177SCmaro, no this a a rotor not a cylinder. You do not measure displacement the same way.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 5 месяцев назад @Jimmy Tran The NHTSA recall investigation of RX-8 engine failures finally put that old false urban myth to rest once and for all.. investigators found NO LINK between customer abuse or neglect in the extremely high number of engine failures and found that owners with fully documented service and inspection records suffered from the same engine failures. Mazda did not challenge these government findings and voluntarily recalled the RX-8 in the U.S. and reimbursed owners that paid for new engines out of pocket.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 5 месяцев назад @Jimmy Tran The RX-8 also had to meet emissions in Japan aswell as the U.S. it sold poorly because it gained a well earned reputation for premature engine failure that initially Mazda refused to cover under warranty and later had to recall the engines... this was due to the renensis having the highest static compression ratio of any version of the 13B family that ran on unleaded gasoline... a certain recipe for apex seal damage and failure.
  • Jimmy Tran
    Jimmy Tran 5 месяцев назад locomojo0485 well.. the RX7 twin turbo made 274hp. The RX8 made 220 NA. The RX7 was made in the 90s when emissions weren’t as strict. The RX8’s engine didn’t do well here because of all the emissions required for it to be sold here which caused Mazda to make an engine which was not as great, yet still RX8 is a very good car if you take care of it well as you should with every RX car.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 7 месяцев назад @r e d d s i n t e r n You are nothing but a FAKE and a LIAR you do not have a functional understanding of how apex seals work or why the still fail... stop spreading your lies and bullshit rumors...
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 7 месяцев назад @r e d d s i n t e r n As I said.. Just the facts here, you are free to go bury your head in the sand and live in a delusional fantasy world if you so chose... but don't complain about things that are factual and true... the truth always bears repeating and attempting to kill the messenger is simply pointless and infantile.
  • poB redruM
    poB redruM 7 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer chilll bro. its all good. its a flawed engine and people know that but nobody wants to be lectured by someone on the internet
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 7 месяцев назад @r e d d s i n t e r n Serious as a fuckin heart attack. Just the facts here kid... are you someone not accustomed to hearing the truth? I like all kinds of old, outdated and obsolete engines... ones that were failures and ones that died out because they just were not as good as the modern reciprocating inline engines... you really need to accept the truth that the Wankel was one of these failed now obsolete engines... the Wankel engine is no longer manufactured anywhere in the world for the simple fact that it is inferior to reciprocating and other engine types still mass produced.
  • poB redruM
    poB redruM 7 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer not being funny here but chill out dude. its a flawed but nice engine. you need to respect that other people like different things

  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +John Spencer Mead Your statement is incorrect, the Mazda 13B series of Wankel engines ALL have a TOTAL, TRUE displacement of 3.9 liters. It is a very simple concept... each orbiting piston(rotor) has 3 sides forming 3 combustion chamber volumes, each with a swept volume of 654cc. times the 2 housings is 6 and equaling 3,924cc or 3.9 LITERS. NOW, when we compare a Wankel engine to a 4-stroke reciprocating engine when need to convert the difference in the number of degrees of crankshaft rotation using the "2X" conversion formula to 720° which gives us a compared displacement of 2.6 liters. Any questions?
  • John Spencer Mead
    John Spencer Mead 9 месяцев назад @177SCmaro because that's the displacement where the compression ratio is measured. Saying it's a larger displacement is innacurate.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +Edgar Davila I'm not the one spreading bad information and false urban myths...
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад So you are not a member of the Rotary Community? Your comments are very confusing son... do you even know what the Rotary Community even is???
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад Are you working with the Race TEP program?
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer I'm part of no official group. I'm just part of a group of people who like the rotary.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад What district and club chapter do you belong to? and what office were you elected to?
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer  doktorbimmer  Well then act like it so you don't make people like me think you are purposely being disrespectful to the community. It's quite confusing.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад I am a big supporter of the rotary community, Rotarians and Rotary International is a fantastic non-profit, charitable service organisation.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад It is both... not only did you admit you know very little on this topic... you also admitted you are hypocrite.
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer It actually is both. This is a personal attack and public call out. It is annoying for us in the rotary community to have you going around calling us idiots and retards for liking a failed flawed engine and recognizing that it's a run n' rebuild racing engine that is hard to daliy drive.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад So now you are denying that this is a personal attack? Its a little late now buddy.
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer   I made a single comment that I see you everywhere on rotary video and asked if you had a Vendetta or something. Then you responded questioning my knowledge of rotaries. I told you to lighten up that you are making it sorta your job to harass people about the rotary. I responded to a comment of yours after I noticed you harassing people. Sure I am the one who provoked you therefore I am the harasser ,and if in my previous comment I said I wasn't shame on me , but only after I noticed you harassing others . So that make my statement about harassing people who talk about rotaries true in this situation if not orhers
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад (изменено) +Messor XV You're the one harassing me.. remember?
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад (изменено) @doktorbimmer oh no , I accept the truth that it's a crappy engine for the modern era . Do I need to quote it for you deary ? And I am content with the reason for why it failed. It was a poor design for a diesel or gas engine that can't satisfy consumers , it could survive any oil crisis , and the rx 8 didn't satisfy consumers. But I'm not trying to argue about the engine I am trying to call you out for being a bitch that goes around and harasses people who like the engine and if you see anything cloesly related you go off like my grandma's dogs. EDIT: also why do you use bold ?
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +Messor XV Are you one of those Ad hominem attack, kill the messenger because I can't accept the truth guys that likes to repeat all those old, tired out, made-up lame excuses for why the Wankel engine is dead?
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer I'm done , NVM fuck this shit I'm out. Yeet
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +Messor XV The main factor in the death of the RX brand is consumers could buy a better car with a better engine for the same price or less... even without leaving the Mazda showroom.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +Messor XV Indeed, I have commented on a lot of Uberursel and Gnome et Rhône videos... but I don't see how that has any relevance to with this video?
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer it is a fact that a factor in the death of the RX model series. Not saying it's the only fact , just a factor. Also your one of those guys that aren't fun at car meets. The "know it all". Of the raging variety in fact that bolds everything they say because they are an attention whore
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer actually we weren't originally talking about rotaries , we where talking about how you are on every rotary (it is easier than wankel) video I see
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +Messor XV Then HOW? Do you explain the success of the MX-5??? It has been a best seller and very profitable for Mazda who still makes the MX series.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +Messor XV Which oil crisis??? Sales of the RX brand were in steady decline since 1986. Can you qualify that theory with some real facts... or are you going to spout off the same rotard myths and rumors that everyone regurgitates on the amateur blogs and forums???
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +Messor XV I hope not! We were talking about WANKEL engines son... remember? I happen to like all kinds of engines... I also can accept that some are better than others which is why many engine designs like the Wankel are obsolete in mass production.
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer now your commenting on an actual comment that your tunnel vision can see that we can actually debate over. Good . I believe that the RX 8 killed of the model series due to the oil crisis and the fact that it didn't live up to the sports car name. It was as good as it could be with low tier sport performance and the classic rotary "reliability"
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer I wasn't even attempting to argue about rotaries and here you go assuming that. Ik they are shit in the common era and with the way times are going there is no improving them. But here you are with your nuttso self trying to argue about rotaries. Just stop commenting with your senile hail-the-reciprocating-engine lookin' ass.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад (изменено) +Messor XV You really don't know much about Wankel engines do you son? Can you tell us who invented the Wankel engine that was produced from 1964 - 2012????
  • MessorXV
    MessorXV 9 месяцев назад @doktorbimmer yes , but at every chance. Come on , lighten uo or rage against the machine or something. It's almost like your job bro. And I see that you still type with all bold. Hasn't your teacher from 6th grade told you to only highlight the important things in the text.
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +Messor XV The truth bears repeating son... haven't you learned that yet?
  • doktorbimmer
    doktorbimmer 9 месяцев назад +Messor XV The RX-8 was a terrible car... no matter who owned it. So bad that it killed off the entire RX brand.

Since they are different from cylinder engines , u can't expect them to be maintained like one. Rotary's require a little more attention and PROPPER maintenance for it's design. And if you change the apex seals after 105,000 miles you could expect to extend the life of the engine.

    Evan L Год назад doktorbimmer driven a built boss 302, a maserati quattrapporte, corvette c5 and c6, tesla model S and X, miata, ford Bronco on 38in tires, jeep wrangler on 35s, r32 skyline (very short drive), Shelby cobra kit car with a 427, and a wrx sti. Those are the memorable ones. The RX8 just behaves differently, rotary engines really don't act like any other motor I've been in control of. It was fun, not sure if I'd own one given the other added maintenance issues with them, but I really liked that car.

  • Arcaynex
    Arcaynex 4 года назад I ended up getting an Rx8 Tuesday, 05 Shinka with 78k miles for 7400$ out the door. Got it compression checked before I bought it, got it done at Maztech in Tampa Florida. He said the compression was adequate and for me that was enough since the price of the car was below KBB, I really wanted it, and had general knowledge of care/upkeep. He also said the plugs looked fairly new, so I ASSUME the others are okay aswell. He said to put 2cycle oil in the gas tank when I fill up, about 1oz per 200oz of gas. My tank is 15.9 gallons so when I get somehwat low (not empty) I just put a 8oz thing of 2 cycle in. I also went ahead and got its' oil changed just so I could start keeping track of the mileage. put 5w-30 non-synthetic. I'm 16 and this is my first car, on top of that my parents bought it for me, i'm taking care of insurance, and basically everything else. Oh, and, it's auto. Carbon has me concerned but can't I just flip it to tiptronic to get it up to high rpms one a drive or so, or even put it in park and put my foot to the floor? this is something i'm still unsure of aswell as a lot of other things i'm certainly sure. P.S sorry for wall of text.
  • OtherSyde
    OtherSyde 4 года назад @Arcaynex Don't buy one unless you're ready to pour a quart of oil into the engine every month religiously and drive it like a maniac on a fairly regular basis in order to use the high RPM's to clean out the carbon from the inside of the engine to prevent carbon lock. And be ready to swap out the four distributor caps, spark plugs, and wires as soon as you get it, as those have a penchant for going out early and unlike a piston engine, a rotary engine misfiring results in fairly quick self-destruction. If you can handle keeping an eye on the maintenance though, then it's a great car. I love mine, and get a lot of compliments and questions about it.

    Nate Rist 4 года назад The RX-8's quick, the RX-8's fast, while this might not be true it's still quite a blast. It requires 91 octane and a redline a day, oh and don't forget about premix because if you do, you're gay, because your seals will wear down at such a fast rate that a rebuild is required at about 80K. It has interesting styling as well as suicide doors, and oh did I mention it consumes oil like a cum guzzling whore? While this car is great for any driver because it's quick in the corners and goddamn is it smooth, it requires much attention to detail and proper maintenance to move. And while it's displacement is small, it's fuel consumption is high and if this really bothers you, well there's still the MX-5

  • doktorbimmer

The assembly plant was closed on June 22nd 2012 and later demolished to make room for a new Skyactiv-G 4-cylinder engine assembly plant for the Mazda3 models.
