Re: tmk's JDM RX-8 2011/S2, for fun mods

Yes, it was a bit worrying. In many ways I think this was a very bad location to establish a country. Earthquakes, typhoons, massive rainfalls, too hot and humid summers yet cold winters, the weather and temperature are never quite right, etc. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191014/01d9fd80ddaa05...

Re: tmk's JDM RX-8 2011/S2, for fun mods

Typhoon passed and we came through without a scratch. The cover I had tied over the 8 blew off, but the car looks unscratched. Realised this morning that maybe things were closer to go wrong than I thought when seeing the river (Arakawa) we nearby. Here is a before and after shot... I’m not sure our...

Re: tmk's JDM RX-8 2011/S2, for fun mods

Thanks everyone! Glad I’m not at the office today! It’s right at Tama revier and the area is flooded now and our office are taking in employees and neighbours from the area apparently.

Re: tmk's JDM RX-8 2011/S2, for fun mods

Tokyo is bracing itself for Super Typhoon Hagibis right now. Supposed to hit us this evening, but already making havoc in nearby Chiba and Shizuoka. Hope my 8 is safe!! It’s sitting outside and during the big typhoon we had a month ago or so something hit it. :-/ Also deciding to live near a river w...

Re: Do you see many RX8's?

By pure chance, ended up driving several km on the highway together with two other random 8s today. We must have looked like a small convoy. :)

That’s really cool, but I don’t think that works for regular track days (as in driving during open slots when the circuit isn’t rented out or having a race). In Japan the A class racing license is totally separate from a local circuit license like Fuji Speedway, Tsukuba, etc. Maybe you can work out ...

Yeah, ever on the Tokyo side?

Haven’t tracked in ages (broke). Where are you planning to go and how? Unless it’s an open track day you’ll need a license.

Re: tmk's JDM RX-8 2011/S2, for fun mods

It's always the way that the best driving roads, in good weather, are among the most scary in bad weather. We've had that on the coast roads outside San Francisco, Gran Caneria and here in NI. At least you've probably got a Japanese battery. There's a difference of opinion, on the "standard" for ta...

Drove around Izu, a peninsula south-west of Tokyo the last couple of days in mostly sh*t weather for hot springs and seafood (originally for beaches, but the heavy rain cancelled those plans). Traction control blinking in the wet and no visibility due to heavy fog so glad I didn’t end up in a ditch ...

Re: tmk's JDM RX-8 2011/S2, for fun mods

I actually see a police car RX-8 parked at one of the Shutoko police stations sometimes. Never seen it driving though. Washed the car this morning and realised my towing hook sees much more action in ad hoc ways than for actual towing. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190405/927bd74b917e08579b3a65...

Re: tmk's JDM RX-8 2011/S2, for fun mods

How do they fund all these "spare" police, we are lucky to field the odd one in the UK :( Not sure. There seems to be way more police out and about than what’s needed in Tokyo. I guess there are a lot of “spare” police because there is so little crime. :-/ Also, traditionally Japan has small police...

I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw that movie! I think one could do real well here as a criminal. At least if one doesn’t go too far as there are some risks; the yakuza will probably not be happy if you cause too much harm in “their” hood (ironic how big crime organisations cleans up the...

Got a new parking spot (again). This one is just one house over from our house, so a lot easier to get to than the parking spot I’ve been suffering from for some time (5min+ walk and two crossings). Still, this being a tiny narrow alley in old downtown part of Tokyo, it’s not exactly great. It’s nar...
