Re: Hi, Thomas from Belgium - wheels and transmission oil

As you have the 5 Speed transmission that oil ought to be OK (it would certainly NOT be OK in the 6 speed!).

Ought to be OK in the diff too.

Any other mods of note that might have helped laptimes?
In case you missed it with your post just after ;)

Good write up - glad you enjoyed your first track outing in your RX-8! My first outing in my RX-8 on track was also an evening session at Brands, but back in 2007 ;) My only previous experience of track driving was a couple of "Nigel Mansell Race School" half days at Brands in the early 1990's.

Blyton is one of the few tracks we have been able to run an exclusive club event, with around 30 cars, but that was a few years ago and ownership of Blyton has changed since then.

Re: Advise - Organising Group Track Day

Depending on the time of year, ballpark costs for those tracks are around £8,000 to £12,000 for a day's hire. With 15 cars, that's £533-£800 per car. Typically, those two tracks would run with about 80 cars (track limit probably around 30-35), meaning cost per car of £100-£150. Mazdaontrack (Nick Do...

Re: Complete brake system required

Another option is to get them refurbed by a company called "Bigg Red". I've had several 1983 RX-7 calipers returned by them with great success. They will replace pistons, if needed, all seals, plus sand blast and paint in a variety of colours. Cost around £400 for a full set, but better than new if ...

Re: Thruxton 90db

In addition to phone db meters being very inaccurate you'll find that readings will vary between tracks. They'll even differ between testers using the same equipment at the same track. It's that variable. So any reading is only really accurate to other tests done at the same time. That's why you'll...

Re: DSC modes

I find, even on a dry track, the DSC is useful to indicate when you're trying too hard. My best lap times are with DSC enable and the light just giving the occasional blink but not getting intrusive. I'd agree, in 90% of circumstances, even in the dry, I find the DSC/TC a useful guide as to when I'...
