Re: What is the best short shifter for the 6 speed RX8 S1?

I have an Axial Flow on my S1 RX8. Mine is pretty noisy - makes almost a "buzzy" sound. But like others have said, definitely gives an improved and more precise clicky feel to gear changes.

Bling jobs done x 3. Batman decal fixed onto the third brake light, aluminium fuel cap door fitted, and (most satisfyingly) illuminated gear knob fitted.

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

Fitted a rear Cusco strut brace, easy enough job. Cut holes in the boot liners on either side

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

Over the weekend I fitted R969 coils, and 10mm Magnecore competition leads. Initial thoughts - the "kangaroo-ing" in first and second gears which the car has suffered from since I bought it 3 weeks ago is not as bad with the new coils, still slightly there, but maybe I need to just use more revs. Dr...

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

I fitted a short shifter kit. Gear changes feel very very nice now. Not that the stock shifter is bad...but this is just the best. Am driving the RX8 to Dub Freeze tomorrow to buy bits for my other car...am looking forward to the drive :)

Re: ToyoSport Exhaust Owners

Good luck with the fitting - mine came with the one gasket and 2 bolts/nuts. I've had my Toyosport exhaust fitted for 3 weeks, and am loving the soundtrack :D .

Re: Which of these budget exhausts should i get ?

Thank you Lead_Foot. Can't wait to get the exhaust fitted, it's such a nice looking piece of kit. Hoping it's not going to be boomy - I fitted a stainless steel Peco catback to a Fiat Coupe turbo once and had to take it off after a few weeks cos of the drone...didn;t realise until it was too late th...

Re: Which of these budget exhausts should i get ?

I too noticed the sudden disappearance of the Toyosport lookalikes listings off ebay, and thought it was a little strange. I actually asked one of the sellers, uk-performance-uk, (who I think are one and the same as 2fast2cool2. Both sellers contact details are the same - Jap Parts with an address i...
