Loving the colour 8)
Anyone who knows me will know I have a thing about yellow :roll: , It came from using yellow on my race cars from when I was a kid. Really got carried away when I had my FD 20 odd years ago :bounce: plus I still have the RX-4 obviously in yellow :mrgreen:

Re: 2018 Mazda CX-3 Change of plans

Change of plans, we have decided to keep the CX-3 and stay as an all Mazda family (RX-4 RX-8 CX-7) This means we have the car up for sale that was going to replace the CX-3. Stunning looking car on 20" wheels as standard that's like new :mrgreen: but Lisa just cant get on with it, so its got to go. ...

JDM Combe 1st June

Hi Guys

Cannot see this listed on the forum - are RX8OC attending this year? If so, assume that MRC members can join, or as the same format as last year?

That is a lovely looking car and well specced.
Can’t say I have really been aware of them before.
Not that I've driven it much, its a proper little Jekyll and Hyde, click it into sport mode and has a whole new personalty with its paddle shift gear changes in play :mrgreen:

Re: Clive's 450 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Well the weekend despite all the work getting and changing tyres etc was a bit of a letdown, primarily due to the weather. Those who have been to some of the December trackdays with us know that Brands can be the equivalent of being in the Antarctic for cold and chill factor and that's what we had o...

With all the power and weight they're packing under the bonnet, they won't stand a chance in the wet :D Yeh, but I might not as well :bump: To be fair, I dont mind the wet, at Silverstone in the wet I started 32nd and last on the grid and got up to 12th with waved yellows all over the place and tho...

Re: Clive's 450 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Parked up at Brands ready for the weekend, the Scooby and the Skyline are there running more power than they do in Track attack and a Team Hard BTCC car will be in my class (they were testing all day!)

Should be interesting racing plus its looking like rain, after a dry all weekend prediction !!!

With revised gearing via the box and the diff, I'm now down to 2 gear changes per lap at Coombe and Brands with three at Donnington so whilst a sequential will always help its not going to give me a ton of time, plus I would need a sponsor for an 8K gear box :shock:

Long shot, but do you have the 4.7 still??
Sorry long gone as I knew I would never use it again.

Round Donnington, the way the car accelerates with gearing that low I was waving my arm around like the Duracell Bunny trying to keep up with the gear changes :shock:

Re: Clive's 450 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Can't see the ratio chart but many thanks. Trouble is, as the cars evolved it has had power in different places plus I now have more corner speed. This means I have changed rear end gearing probably four times from 4.7 to 4.3, then changing the gear box to a five speed changed things again. I know t...

Are those the actual tyres or just a stock photo, as they look like the pre-2017 245/650R18 rather than the current 265/660R18? These were just a picture off the internet to give people an idea of what I was talking about ;) I now have lots of current spec medium and soft 265-660-18's plus a good s...
