RX-8 on Royal Blue

Words and Photos by Zach TaijiIf you attended StanceWars this year, one of the cars you may have noticed is Sean King’s RX-8. It previously created internet hype with the last setup, MB Weapons. And now the car is back on some fresh wheels and a couple new mods.

First thing you’ll notice is how low the car is; almost undriveably low. This RX-8 is sitting on Megan Street Coilovers, and to accompany them are new wheels. They’re Enkei RPF1′s in a Royal Blue. The fitment is super aggressive, 18×10.5 +15 all around. Thankfully the RX-8 has wide arches to fit such a big wheel.

To finish out the rest of the exterior, the roof and trunk have been wrapped in dry carbon, and the front end is completed by a VIS CF hood and evo-R CF lip. Yes, Sean loves Carbon Fiber. Hell, there are even Seibon CF Sideskirts to round everything out. The best part about the car is that these modifications are subtle enough not to scream out at you, but when you take the time to gaze at it, you’ll really notice all the little things.

Basic Engine mods are an MS (MazdaSpeed) Intake and Exotic Speed Exhaust; if you’re an RX-8 owner you know that power mods aren’t cheap for these cars and offer very little gains. Sean has something planned for the future though; think “big power”.

I could go on about this car all day, but thought I’d keep it on the short side and let the photos do most of the talking. If you’d like to read more on this car with the previous setup, as well as some interview questions answered by Sean himself, check out this link: http://nw-built.com/?p=249

  • sooo this looks sick ! i like the size of the tires ……looks badass with the thicker tires any info on what the rubber is ?

  • I am extremely inspired with your writing skills and also with the format on your weblog.

    Is that this a paid subject or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice
    blog like this one today..

  • Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..

    Any tips? Thanks!

  • Good way of telling, and nice paragraph to obtain data on the topic of my presentation subject, which i am going to convey in school.
