We know from the previous installments of Maximum Tune, the FD's aero kit looks like this:
(IMG:http://www.hotworksracing.com/die-cast/product/content_images/a_3a_blue.jpg)

What aero part should I unlock for that one? I only have unlocked Aero Part B as of this time. (Currently Lvl. 17 Dress up)


Thanks.

That's the body kit C for the FD...you'll get it soon...
I don't know what's the overall performance of the body kit though...
I don't have an FD... <_<

I recently did a TA at C1 Outbound and got a time of 3'00. I know its still slow but I'm slowly getting there. I might change my current setup on my FD soon if it equates to improving my TA.

Trust me, just changing the setup won't make every car suddenly shave lots of time off of the drivers record. Considering that your driving an FD, I say you just need to practice more, the RX-7 handle just fine, so just attack the course more. The first TA I did with my Supra I got 3'00'000 with no experience at all. The second run I got 2'58'000 and as I drove on the course more, I shaved off more and more time with the exact same setup.

Hi everyone,

I've got a Mazda Eunos Cosmo :D

This car slides like crazy, and is much easier to mess up corners with when compared to the other more popular cars, but it seems to be one of the best in terms of high-speed acceleration and total top speed.

Currently i've got:
Aero Kit C
Carbon Ducted Bonnet
Rays Versus Gabbana Rims
Model Specific Spoiler


is there anyone else here that uses this car at all? :P

I have no idea...
It's great on Hakone considering the fact that it's a light weight FR that has great handling...
But I'm not seeing much RX-8s in the IR of Hakone... <_<
Osaka however...An RX-8 is currently holding the top spot for Eng machines... :-"

Just go with the car you prefer, performancewise or by appearance..

As for you RB33, I told you the other day didn't I? c1 is up to you..you and you only..your FD's set-up won't do much on your TA Record. ^_^

I'm happy more and more use Mazdas nowadays..may I know who elese use RX-8 as their primary/secondary car? :)

Well, given that it would be better to keep all questions regarding the RX7, RX8, Cosmos and the Mazdaspeed 6 in one thread.

Anyway, first thing to contribute is that if you have an RX8, then this setup makes it pretty grippy without the disadvantages of lost speed:

Aero Kit A
Aero mirrors
Normal hood
Any lightweight rims (I usually prefer the Enkeis the best)
Wing by car type

But do be careful with this as the RX8 is a much easier car to ram pinball with.

Are there any other disadvantages besides it being like a pinball?
I just have my rx-8 set up some random way...

It doesn't have much power... <_<
I think the one with most power in all 3 RX series is the FD...I think...
But yea...the RX-8 is a bit underpowered in my opinion...

Well...the set-up I'm currently using seems ok to me...

Aero B
Yokohama 3-spoke
3D-GT wing
Ducted CF hood
Aero mirrors

Great cornering abilities with this setting...I think...
Grips well while able to over steer and slide when you wish to... ;)

go stock and know what's your weaknesses, then use necessary dress up to match it up.

I dont think it matters because usually I can adjust to how
the kit acts, how it turns, how fast it goes, etc.

Yep :)

They are better than people think they are, but they aren't top tier at all.
It takes a while to get used to them, and learn how to "control the slide" ;)

They are a 4-gear, large car, so their pushing ability is good, and their high speed acceleration is also great . Unfotunately due to their size/weight, they aren't very nimble through the corners.

If you want to win with this car, you'll sometimes have to play rough through to corners...
