Re: ***TRACKDAY Brands Hatch - Friday 4th December SOLD OUT***

GARAGES: The current CV19 based rules as interpreted by MotorSportVision dictate only one car per garage at any one time, but that shouldn’t stop us “hot swapping” when someone needs to do some work on their car. My current plan is to secure a block of 10 garages (hopefully with a small discount, £...

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

Neutral switch and SAI issues. I don't have SAI, so can ignore that one, but will see if the neutral switch CEL was a one-off. I think it might cause an idling issue if not operating correctly, but my car seemed OK for the 20 miles I had to drive it with the CEL.

Re: ***TRACKDAY Donington GP Circuit - Friday 18th December £139***

Ooops, I just noticed I posted laps of the NATIONAL circuit, but you are doing the longer GP circuit :oops: ;) That'll confuse you! Ignore the right hand chicane, you've got a left hand chicane at the same point, leading to a very tight hairpin on the Melbourne loop, then another, slightly less tigh...

Re: ***TRACKDAY Donington GP Circuit - Friday 18th December £139***

Glad you found it useful. I had the same problem with the Octavia on another track session too. He wasn't going to let me pass, so same again, backed off to get some clear track. Some drivers just don't get it, if he'd have backed off for a second or two on a corner exit I would have been able to pa...

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

Makes me wonder how many owners have had the recall done but have never filled the tank only to find out some time at a later date that their car may catch fire after a fill up. :-k :shock: * * Del. That's been one of my concerns too :( If it does happen a long time after the recall work then it'll...

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

John, I think the best thing to do would be to warn the dealer when you drop your car off that you are aware that a significant number of cars have had leaks after this work has been done and ask them to THOROUGHLY check there are no fuel tank leaks before you collect and ask them again when you col...

That's almost 1/4 just of what has been reported.. Nevermind those who haven't seen this/aren't in the OC etc.. Scary figures in reality.. 1 in 4 chance of your car having a very serious issue. I've been thinking about how to relate my small sample responses to the entire population of recalled car...

Sorry if I'm late for the party. Mine is going to be a bit more convoluted than yes/no. Sorry to hear that tale. Sadly, I can't include your information in the data I'm collating as I might be double-counting. I have 3 Facebook reports of leaks where I do not have the dealership or dates involved a...
