Re: Yakushi Show, British Motor Museum 2020 - Saturday 15th August

We have been liasing all the time with Nigel who is the organiser and this has been agreed from the outset, so the plan is to meet approx 9-9.30 in Convoy Meeting area. Lisa will call him when we have all arrived to ensure that we all get parked up together.

Re: Clive's 520 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

As you will have seen from times its a very competative close grid and and whilst I will always want to go quicker I was pleased and supprised to see 1.602 off pole with a 52.899614 Track had changed by the race and was very very dirty which was why I was cautious 1st corner and I simply didn't find...

I wanted to bring the family to watch tomorrow (the grandstands are open and free apparently) but it's advance tickets only and the deadline was Friday #-o
Best of luck for tomorrow Clive!
Thank you, I will be at Brands at least one more time this year.

Getting past is the difficult bit, but an RX8 can be particularly wide once in front. :lol: :lol: Not sure I'm agile but the car might be :mrgreen: O' yes I know h...

Strewth Clive, you will need ear plugs with all those V8s around you. The video is going to be epic and your car will have a high profile in amongst that lot.

Allways been up for a bit of Rotary promotion to dispel the doubters :mrgreen:

Re: Rx8 13b-rew swap

I think this tells you the quality of the kit Without Turbo and Wastegate (-$235.00)

$255----------------- real parts are going to cost around £1400 just for the Turbo and Wastegate!

Different view from my frustrating first race where I was down on power. You can see later in the race why I am pleased with my this years brake set up, off the end of Bentley straight,

Re: Clive's 520 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Good result, it’s always nice when something is found and corrected. It wasn't me I was in Dover hiding in the castle ;) Best thing is I have realised I was down on power at the Brands test session the previous week and I was still quicker than I have been around there before. I got it into the 53'...

Re: Clive's 520 BHP Super GT RX-8 Race Car

Here we go, the car on the Dyno. Turns out I was way out on power plus all fluffy at the top and even the new plugs were losing me 20bhp. Change of type of plug sorted that. Back to the same power but Pip found me more mid range and its coming in proper on lower boost now. So, an excellent Dyno sess...

Evening Dave, hope your still OK. Probably angle, because as well you know, the angle you turn in at is relevant to where your exit point ends up being. On most corners, Turn in to early and you won't maximize your exit and probably wont use as much road and be slow, turn in late and you may end up ...

Enjoyed the video. You made it look easy.
Great start to your season.
Thankyou, biggest issue with it that wet and slippery is to keep off the kerbs as they will just chuck you off the road in these conditions.

I'm now miffed about not realising the car should have been quicker down the straights in qualifying because had I changed the plugs and had the power I then had in the second race I would have at least got the two if not three in front of me in the first race, Shame I didn't get the rear camera to ...

I know a few of you wanted to go to Castle Combe to see the car, but sadly although our promotor had a written contract they have told him we cant race and another series has taken our slot. Quite rightly he is fuming as his race club has supported and paid money to Combe for many years. I have Sne...
