Re: Which premix do you use?

Motul

Smells good, nice bottle and I get it cheap from my local Yam dealer. Other than that no real reason.

Re: JAE: Japanese auto extravaganza

Guys I'm afraid I can't make it. Same problem that stopped me getting to Pete's unfortunately. Family illness although this time I don't have to go up to Newcastle as well but I've got to take Ann to her sisters in Lincoln and they're travelling up together. I'd do it Saturday but she's working :(. ...

Re: **AUTOSOLO** Sunday 8th September 2013 in Aldershot

Good video clips. Even Nigels Prius tyres and damaged hand would be no handicap compared to my short term memory. I don't think I'd have a hope of getting round without a zillion penalties :)

Re: It's a great car and other non-negative RX8 stuff

I pulled into Tesco for todays tank full of 99. The guy at the pump in front of me asked if it was a kit car - I'm not sure how I feel about that. Most kit cars are all blue tack and adenoids LOL

Re: DIY Forced Induction

Its still a supercharger but the centrafugal ones are quite a neat solution. Theres always such a shortage of space. If you reworked the rad and intercooler you may be able to drive something like this directly off the crank pulley and that would free up some room up top for neater plumbing. A low m...

Re: A possible source

I can't see any prices but these Greek companies worry me a little (although I've never used one). There is no obvious reason why Greece would be cheaper than anywhere else in Europe for US, JAP or European parts so it makes me a little suspicious especially when they're simply retailing. Oh! just r...

Most nights I stop at the local newsagents. If its been a good day I pick up some milk and a paper. If its been a bad day I get milk, a paper and a pile of scratch cards :) Anyway, early last week the guy who lives opposite got a new car. Not really looked to see what it is but I think its something...

Of course. Engines put out more power on cool wet days and it makes sense to try to recreate those conditions.

Re: Water Injection Information

There were a lot of old systems that simply fed water vapour into the intake. You could buy a cheap kit for the Classic Scooby. The main advantage was raising intake oxygen levels. Whilst water doesn't burn it does expand at a hell of a rate so you have to be super careful when introducing it.

But surely if the products were any good you wouldn't need to use more than one to do the same job. Quick Detailer and Aqua Wax are basically the same thing.

Re: Japfest 2 - 2013 Sunday 7th July - General chat

If we had the gazebos, merchandise, flags and perhaps a demo motor we'd have to be confident of a good turnout at all of these events so adaquate space could be booked and the stand layout decided in advance. Would it be possible to create (don't mean to sound corny) the "Mazda Rotary Village" where...

You could carefully remove the OS shroud until you get sorted. It won't look as obvious. In fact, if it wasn't for the clip slots it wouldn't look too bad at all.

I think one (although may have been OS) just closed on Ebay with no bids. I've just looked and he hasn't relisted it.
