Re: Server Errors?

I don't know what the outcome of that was, but I have just added to robots.txt anyway. Might take a little while before it picks up the rule, so you might see it for a little while longer in the active users list.

Re: Server Errors?

Found a couple of cheery automated netizens that were chewing through our site. I have invited them to jog on, so perhaps that will help, as currently there is no obvious other issue to account for these errors.

Re: Show us an RX-8!

In no way current, but I am sat here watching the Nurburgring 24, a week after watching Le Mans, which prompted me to look up our first (of 4) RX8's we took to Le Mans in the year of the 20th anniversary of 787b win (it had way more graphics when we took it, but this was just before the ones we had ...

Re: Suzuki SX4

Ours in no way can be described as fast so not sure what model or mods the one you saw had. It does however have a graph which shows you MPG that makes you giggle, after completing the same journey in the 8. :z Yes, RX8 MPG is best not looked at. Ever. Right way to do it.

Re: Brake judder

If you are yet to spend any money, and at risk of sounding like a broken record having posted this on most similar threads, this post on the US club site is worth a read before forking out, which I think is written by someone in the brakes business: https://www.rx8club.com/series-i-wheels-tires-brak...

Re: Overheated RX8

Others might have a more informed opinion to say whether this is correct/worthwhile - but leaving the car to stand for a few days or so if you have the time and seeing if you have trouble starting it, might also reveal the likelyhood of a water jacket seal failure. My first 8 would easily overheat u...

Over here in NI the whole subject of flaaags is highly provocative.

Re: Happy St. George’s Day

Is it considered racist to celebrate St Georges day, or is it more of a case that there is a perception that there is attempt for all things St George to be appropriated by racists, and people to don't want to risk being associated? I would think it is better to drown those vile morons out with plen...

Re: JayEmm on Cars YT RX8 Review

Also some fair points. I think on reflection it very much depends on what prism you are viewing it through. I tried to watch it from the POV of one of his subscribers, who probably would never have been in the market for an 8 and so would have been unlikely to hunt out 8 content. Appreciate that loo...

Whilst I don't really disagree with the points being raised, I can't help thinking that the criticism is a bit harsh. A little context: the RX8 is increasingly being bought by people who's budget extends to what they can get free with a meal deal at Tescos. One of the well known traders is getting o...

Re: GSB III 03/08/13 - Present

Yes, admitadly that is annoying. The insurance guys just calculate numbers based on risk and supposedly the stats show that someone who has been in an accident, irrespective of fault, is more likely to be involved in another within 12 months. Hopefully tho, there is some nuance to that so this kinda...
