Re: Tools, tools, tools (was Thumb Ratchets)

I'm using chrome and it displays fine for me.

Longshot, are you somehow viewing the forum via a http:// rather than the secure https:// url?

I'm not sure if that's even possible, but could be an explanation?

Re: Flat spot on Kuro 2

I recall the SSV opens at between 3200 and 4000, depending on load, so not sure it's the culprit. As you have you fitted the RRP coils recently, I'd agree with Wayne, go back to what you had previously as a diagnostic. Did you have D585 coils on before and was the ECU tweaked to alter the dwell time?

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

Put the battery on charge this morning as a precaution - my RX-8 has not been moved for weeks :(

"Staying local" means it's unlikely to be going anywhere soon either :( :(

As far as I'm aware, it's not on any service schedule. Warpc0il can correct me if I'm wrong!

RCRIT-17V354-2573.pdf It's frustrating that we can access these US documents, openly and for free, but not the UK documents, even with my privileged access to some Mazda systems. Indeed. I did ask David if I could have a copy of the relevant updated documents but he replied: "I am not allowed to se...

Re: MAJOR UPDATE Page 6: **SAFETY ALERT: Fuel Tank recall - Fuel Leaks & Other Issues"

I'm delighted to have received an email from David W-G at Mazda UK a few minutes ago. The key content of which was: We (Mazda UK) have made immediate changes to the online Technical Bulletin that all dealers should use when doing repairs. For info, we specify that dealers don’t print out repair proc...

Re: UPDATE Page 4: **SAFETY ALERT: Fuel Tank recall - Fuel Leaks & Other Issues

Took my car to get the long list of recalls done after getting the notice. Came home, smelt fuel and saw a wet exhaust and driveway. Does anyone know if VOSA have been contacted about this as it's so common for this to happen? How many cars are out there that are a fire risk that haven't noticed a ...

Re: UPDATE Page 4: **SAFETY ALERT: Fuel Tank recall - Fuel Leaks & Other Issues"

One concern is that, based on some numbers provided by Mazda, most of the RX-8 tank recalls have now been done. We are aware that many owners may not realise they have a leak. Based, conservatively, on the survey results, there could be over 300 RX-8's with leaks :( I wonder if any other Mazda model...

A small, and somewhat late bit of progress, but at least it's progress.

The staff could, in desperation, be laid off, but I didn't realise he had a fleet of supercars (the other side of his business), that would be a cash-flow nightmare!

Sad to hear this, and slightly odd, in that the fixed overheads for this type of business would have been quite low?

Re: New Rx8 owner

Can't tell with the flash on that photo, but you mention the car is "Strato Blue", which is a very dark blue. Your photo suggests the much lighter "Winning Blue".

Oh, and your profile states "Titanium Grey", just to confuse :-k :D
