Re: South Wales (Cardiff) Meet - Saturday 9th June 5pm

Righto, I've booked a table at The Old Cottage for 6pm on Saturday the 9th June. They've requested pre-orders, so if you're in, please make your choices. 8) https://www.oldcottagecardiff.co.uk/content/pcdg/wales/oldcottagecardiff/menus I'll update the first post asap. Maybe we'll do a Wye Valley run...

Looks like you upset the Rotary Gods with this comment about R3s and breaking. You need to be more careful in future. :(
Yes, I must be more careful! Particularly as I thought that more likely to appease..

I guess what they really want is sacrifice! :lol:

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Misery'

Thanks all, and you're not wrong about the diagnosis, it is possible it's not the bearing of course, as I'm no expert, but has all the usual hallmarks.

I'll be trying to get a better opinion asap.

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

It would seem that on the way home from work today I suffered from rear bearing failure again. Utterly devastated right now, and will have to give some thought as to where I go from here with the car. :( Just need a bit of time to consider the options really, but it does start with 'can I afford to ...

Whenever I hear of 8's breaking (especially R3s ;)) this is what I think of..

Re: ^^^TRACKDAY Pembrey Saturday 19th May @£155^^^

Finally completed my first track day, though when I say completed I mean I managed a few laps before I knackered my front brake pads! :D It was an amazing experience, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Totally get why so many get the bug for this now.. Big thanks to everyone, especially Neil for agreeing ...

Re: South Wales (Cardiff) Meet - Saturday 12th May 5pm

Can't get a table for the 9th June, but I have booked a table for Sunday the 10th.
Unfortunately I won't be able to make it myself on the Sunday, but that's no reason to abandon it. :D

Or, I could try and book a table on Saturday at The Cottage, for a change?

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Continued with a little brake refresh today. Whipped off the FNS caliper, and found some strange wear patterns on the inside pad: IMG-20180505-WA0010.jpg Disc is clearly to blame for that, and it does feel just like you would think. New discs time? :-k Also found a clip on the same pad that I've not...
