Re: Clive's 470 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Are you still running with the DSC active or is that long gone now? As you know I ran with the DSC system for a long time on the car but as the car got faster and faster, it was interfering with the speed of the car with braking and pulling the throttle off going down the straights , even the ABS s...

Re: Clive's 470 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Were the pads fresh in for this event Clive? Thanks for the comments :thumleft: As for the pads, I was running new Ferodo Racing DS3000 in the front which is a Race Pad. (A pad I have sold to FD's for years and years with no complaints) They did the little run around with the club at Combe, which w...

Re: Clive's 470 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

In the words of Monty Python "My Brakes are bereth of life" ! I really wasn't joking when I said I ran out of brakes at Silverstone ;). With with the material gone, I used the metal backing to try and stop, then I even tried using the caliper piston against the disc as it made its way through the br...

Re: Clive's 470 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Thanks Guys, Wheel spin I can handle, actually putting 2lbs in the rear was to make the car "turn" better which positioned the car better off Luffield which in turn let me gain better traction :mrgreen: Must admit the car has amazing front to rear balance because between very minor adjustments to ei...

Re: Clive's 470 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Silverstone 7th April race report.🏁 Long read Qualifying went OK but felt there was more in the car to come, 3rd on the grid with 4 tenths covering the first three of us so I knew it would be close. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and after qualifying I added fuel, putting one ten litre can in and th...

Re: Rebuild following a blown side seal

You use the supplied bolt to push the pellet right into the end of the shaft then refit the eccentric shaft bolt less the parts with the red cross in the attached picture.

Hope this helps

Re: Aftermarket Flywheel's/clutches

As said above standard Exedy clutch which are fitted to the RX-8 by Mazda is more than capable of handling any non turbo, non supercharged car, even if its fully bridge ported. As for the counter-balance weight, this is such a crucial component to the engine, I would never fit any thing other than a...

Re: Near to Norwch Fuel injector top O ring urgently required

Go along to a local bearing/ seal company armed with the o ring and they will be able to match something up for him

Search something like SKF bearings to find a local distributor.

Re: Clive's 470 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

So pleased I had a chance to test the race car and had a great day out with all of you as well (as always). Probably the best the car has ever felt and feels much faster down the straights now it holds boost properly, also since the last Coombe outing the car has different spring rates, different br...

Thanks for the comments and asking how the car is. Cars fine,no harm done. A pipe came off the electric water pump, even though the pipe had been on there for three years, the pipe was just a little short and under a little tension. So pleased it happened just as I was about to call it a day, rather...

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?
