Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Drove it today. That shouldn’t been an event, but not happening that often these days.

Despite the ongoing soft lock, several nice cars at Tatsumi PA.

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

Took the car for a spin in the nice weather and went car spotting at Daikoku PA and Tatsumi PA. Looks like there are still some enthusiasts that aren’t hiding at home during these pandemic times. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200321/ae11c9bda63111a916b3afded0e86113.jpg Sent from my iPhone using...

Cool! Guess the first thing is to reduce body roll?

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

I’m not sure if I can tell the difference with those arms or not. I’ve never tried them separately from the rest of the set as I put on the whole set when I got them. The difference with the whole set is surprisingly big. Much more than I had expected when I first got them. It feels much stiffer (so...

Thanks a lot for the helpful tips! Pretty spot on! [emoji106] Just got back from my friend’s shop where we got it on a lift and checked out. The huffing puffing might just be the plugs. So that’s good. The under body was more interesting. The car part that we hit has struck the car severely in two l...

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

A couple worries have cropped up on this car recently... Sometimes it does a bit of huffing and puffing when I start it up (but not when I try to record a video of that of course). Given that it’s been maintained properly and “only” 43k km it seems early if it’s compression, no? [emoji26] Also, last...

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

Yeah, that Bayside Dave blue is nice! There is one that drops into Tatsumi PA all the time and it’s a popular colour. Wasn’t that the colour in the original factory brochures? I guess it’s also that it’s the “Fast and the Furious” blue, but I don’t think that franchise has meant quite as much for th...

It’s not the car per se, but the aftermarket Bride seats and towing hooks, not to mention all the rumbling noise it makes, that makes it feel out of place.

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

Getting cold here in Tokyo; 8 takes longer to warm up and it rattles a lot more than in the summer. I suppose it’s both that it does in fact rattle more and also that it’s more noticeable now that I drive with the window closed. Feels a bit plastic fantastic. Wish these were put together better. htt...

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...

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 ...
