    I just read USA today's article about the new RX8. The max RPM for the engine is 9000 RPM (manual transmission) and 7000 RPM for the automatic.

    30 grand is very very high. Your turbo might be winding out at 30 to 140 grand, but not your engine. The turbo on my Talon can wind out at up to 150,000 RPM, which is insane.

    I don't think he meant 30k RPM for the engine, I think he meant 30 pounds of boost at high RPM ( ).

    If you are saying the engine will spin 30k RPM, then I say you're talking out your ass

    My car is also like Alpha's A 2001 Accord Coupe (4-cyl 5 speed). Only minor mods though, because it's a lease. I'd love to have a RX-7, but I simply can't afford that Even my Accord (bought brand new) was only $17,500

    No, i meant 30k from the engine itsself. the 6 second RX7 spins more than that, it is not unheard of. Will mine do that? No way in HELL, but CAN a rotary do that? absolutely.

    Blew my apex seals
    But you guys don't understand, "my apex seals" is the name of my dog

    RoD it's because you talk about things that no one cares about in order to make yourself seem cool. Look up pretentious. I might have speeled that rong. Examples include

    1 - You putting pics of yourself getting a tattoo on this site
    2 - You talking about being worried about getting your girlfriend pregnant so everyone on this site knows that you're getting your dick wet so we think you are cool
    3 - You talking about putting airplane fuel in your atv so we think you are cool
    4 - I think the last thing was your engine going up to 30k rpm
    5 - and a plethor of other things. but maybe it's plethora. but maybe i don't care, maybe they'll think im a loser for not knowing if it's plethor or plethora. we should all be like govtcheez, cuz despite the fact that he's a turd he's not pretentious

    >> You talking about putting airplane fuel in your atv so we think you are cool

    Well, I suppose that'd work since its higher octane than normal... but I don't see how it'll boost an ATV's performance much.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    They make special racing fuel for dirtbikes and atvs I think. I use it on my dirtbike.

    Eh?... just wondering why anyone would buy airplane fuel for several dollars a gallon for an ATV since it won't do anything for it.

    whoa whoa whoa, that's not the govtcheez I know, govtcheez doesn't laugh. "Hehehe" (the idiot dutch girl laugh) is not a part of govtcheez's vocabulary, therefore you are being pretentious and you are just a turd.

    govtcheez - abilitytonotbepretentious = turd

    >>1 - You putting pics of yourself getting a tattoo on this site

    Umm, i was happy i got one. It was a big deal to me and i wanted to share it, i mean what the hell dude.

    >>2 - You talking about being worried about getting your girlfriend pregnant so everyone on this site knows that you're getting your dick wet so we think you are cool

    Not the point at all. I dont really have anyone i can talk to about this stuff. My dad would freak, my mom would send me to my dad, and my friends would just crack on me for being a scared lil <insert random name>....cprog is my only real outlet when something serious in my life is happening, didnt know everyone took it that way, sorry.

    >>3 - You talking about putting airplane fuel in your atv so we think you are cool

    It wasnt me that started that conversation for one, im sorry if i decided to join in on a topic. Its aviation fuel, alot of racers do it.

    >>4 - I think the last thing was your engine going up to 30k rpm

    I never said it was my engine, ever. In fact, i said the opposite not 5 reply's ago.

    Will mine do that? No way in HELL
    >>if you have 40k to spend on your car and you are a student feck you!

    I'm not a student, not for several more months.

    >>yeah it is really impressive you can smoke civics with your 40,000$ daddy bought car

    I take a heavy amount of insult to that. I bust my ass to afford my car, and i barely make the payments. But guess what, i make them, and my parents have nothing to do with that, so go $$$$ yourself.

    >>They make special racing fuel for dirtbikes and atvs I think. I use it on my dirtbike.

    Your full of $$$$. You THINK they make it, but you USE it. So if your using it, why do u THINK they make it. Your first sentence indicates you are not sure as to its existence, and then you claim to use it? Yea, ok
