Re: Limited Club Photoshoot

Just a thought, JDM Combe is on Sat 6 June. Maybe some people would like to make a weekend of it, stay over Sat night and join a photoshoot on the Sunday in the Cotswolds?

INTERIOR bits FREE!

Paul Roddison is planning to skip some RX-8 interior stuff. Parts free, but you'll need to collect or contact Paul if you want him to ship.

Note seats and speakers spoken for.

Those noise levels will be fine if you have a stock exhaust.

Re: Porting without affecting mpg-possible?

Hugely variable mpg, but fairly consistent, depending in driving style:
25mpg best (long trip, 60-70mph, light throttle, no fun....)
19mpg average on normal driving (some fun)
7-10mpg trackday (massive fun!)

Re: Porting without affecting mpg-possible?

I have noticed no significant mpg change with my full bridgeport. I have fairly meticulous mpg records since I bought my car new in 2004. If anything, there is a slight improvement in mpg, which was most unexpected!

No good talking to a Mazda dealership for advice :lol: - contact the Mazda UK HQ at Dartford, My last contact there was with Grant Richards, who was on the Mazda Brand team. I think he's still there, but haven't been in touch with him since 2018, so may have moved on: grichards@mazdaeur.com Failing ...

Re: RX8 on the Mongol Rally?... (10,000 mile trip to Eastern Siberia)

How reliable are the engines if they are well kept, but running 10 hour days at 23mph on dirt roads in deserts?... Ah, I'd missed the point that the rally is intended to run with "unsuitable" cars :lol: I'm not sure anyone will have experience of such low speed running of an RX-8 for long periods i...

Re: RX8 on the Mongol Rally?... (10,000 mile trip to Eastern Siberia)

My initial reaction would be that the RX-8, a sports car, is not suitable for this trip. Driving over potholes and at 25 mph, maybe in July hot conditions, is not what the car was designed for, and well may result in overheating and suspension issues. Ground clearance is low too of course. Fuel cons...

Yep, a great night out, lovely to see some familiar faces, plus a few new ones. Bottles of Prosecco for just £10.99 did help lift spirits too ;)

Awesome goody bags from Ann, which inspired me to place an order with Amazon Prime at the table for some flashy badges for our Christmas guests :lol:

To satisfy our insurance requirements, as this is a private event run by the Club, we will need to know in advance the names of everyone (drivers, passengers and spectators) planning to attend on the day. It is likely that our insurers will require passengers (as well as drivers of course ;) ) to ha...
