Re: TOO FAST TO RACE !!

It really is their loss and shows a blinkered and unambitious outlook, out of touch with the stated goals on their own website. By embracing cars such as yours they promote a bit of diversity and lateral thinking that brings interest to their grids (hence also entertaining that it is your car they c...

Re: Connector not connected

Back with my first 8 I thought I woukd treat her to a new tank for a similar cost. Back then RotaryRevs didnt exist so I went to another well respected specialist in Yorkshire and asked for a new tank to be ordered and fitted. When I went to collect the car I got told some story that the postman cou...

Re: Connector not connected

In engineering and scientific circles, the technical description of the design of this component, is piece of complete and utter :censored: :censored: :!:

I have owned 4 RX8's and all of them came with this connector already disconnected :roll:

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 ...

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...

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?

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...
