Default Longshot - Does anyone have spare ignition coils for RX8?

I was planning to run trackjunkies on monday and did plugs last week with Conroy to solve a new misfire issue. Unfortunately last night I learned that the car is still misfiring on the front rotor, which I am going to assume/pray is only because of the age of the BHR ignition coils (2 years old / supposed to last 3 years).

I *really* want to run the TJ event on Monday. Do any current or former RX8 owners have a spare ignition coil replacement set that I could purchase today or tomorrow?

Damn, I just threw my old ones out the other day. They would've been fine for one event.

the BHR coils are available locally everywhere . ACdelco number d585.
http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo....jsn=__GIX__3__

These are exactly the same with exception of the colour and range from 50 to 120 each depending on quality. I use the 50 ones without any problems.
I also have some good OE coil packs if you need them.
My phone number is 7802789397

I was going to say ... didn't you put the kit that uses LS2 coils on your car? But Ryan beat me to it.

I realize this is all probably moot by now but if you wanted for testing purposes or something, I have a spare set of factory coils, wires & mounting bracket.

I also have a set of LS1 (?) truck coils that I need to mock up a bracket for.

Missed all of this on the weekend, thanks everyone! The TJ event was cancelled so I didn't miss out, tested coils yesterday with Greg and found one of them is failing. Charles/BHR is shipping a replacement as it's under warranty still.

vpr (Ryan?) thanks for the info! So much $$ to be saved when I replace all 4 next time.
