Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Curious, that's a totally different design to my set of Racing Brake BBK Calipers :-k Mine have two slide pins and a very simple spring design. This shows the pins, but I can't find a pic of the spring. I've not seen your RB BBK single pin design on an RX-8 before, and I've seen 4-5 sets at least :?...

I'm sure you won't be disappointed with your purchase, just make sure to warm it up and beep it regularly.

Hope to see you at an event when the current crisis is over :D

Re: Supercharged RX-8 Engine Renaissance

Just a thought. How many people who have experienced this issue are running with aftermarket coils with the dwell changed? Wild theory that the extra spark energy at high rev track stress could lead to local overheating and weld failure?

Re: Aftermarket fuel pump and resistor over heating

Another option is to remove the relay completely and use a jumper.

We will proceed on the basis it's going to happen, for the present at least.

However, the speed at which things are developing, events like this may well face cancellation through circumstances outside our control.
