it sux to hear that the handling is not as great as the celiacs, cz i thought it is smaller and should handle as good as a miata.
p.s. check the date this post was made if you havent noticed
It definitely weighs more than a Celica (RX-8 is about 3000lb). So you might expect handling to be not as sharp. I dunno, I had an opportunity to drive one, but took a pass. I guess I'd still like to drive one and check it out. I think they look pretty cool.
