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

Do you have to add back in any other bracing as you are replacing the PPF Clive? A small brace is going to be made to stop the nose of the diff going up and down which will be integral with the rear subframe. The gear box mount will go where the first of the tunnel braces go. There won’t be too muc...

Re: Differential Oil Recommendations

Four years ago, I put a 5 speed box in the race car and it felt very notchy, I had already been using LUCAS OIL Fully Synthetic 75W140 Gear oil in the diff for years so used it in the gear box as well. Gear change was immediately sorted and been using this oil successfully ever since putting 520BHP ...

Hi Clive,

Is this still available? If so will transfer to you now.

For my buddy that was going to do Silverstone GP this month, before it was cancelled.

Cheers!
Bill

MR2 Has a Turbo Honda lump in it plus engine over the rear wheels gives it excellent traction off the line.

Hard Racing at Donington Sunday on not quite the right tyres all day (totally wrong tyres for the second and pulled off) 39 cars on the grid with a lot of aggressive interlopers! At the end of the day I did enough to win the Track Attack GT Modified 2020 Championship for the third year running / bes...

Thanks for the comments.

At the Brands Track Day in december I will test out the 4.7 that Dan sorced for me, plus I will tank tape some tufts of wool onto the vents and the intercooler scoop then see if I can go fast enough to make them flutter ;)

After seeing Malcolm's picture @ Snetterton with the bonnet lifting more than ever, I decided to employ the set of Singular Motorsports Bonnet Louvers I had laying around.
