Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Sorry to disappoint...

P.s I've being consistently getting those ambulance chaser calls ever since my first RX-8 was rear ended back in 2013 [emoji17]Image

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Alan, You will ache for ages. I did the same thing as Haydn, came off on an Alpine downhill course when the brakes boiled; luckily I had full armour and helmet on so nothing broken but boy oh boy the bruises; I was covered with them as I rolled down the mountain side for quite a distance. I couldn'...

I hope so too. Knee injuries always take a while, but I'm sure that after 3 weeks I'll be capable if not 100%.

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Crikey. That happened to me on an alpine descent once, worst injuries I've had. Glad you're 'mostly' alright. Get well soon. I think this is the most simultaneous injuries I've ever had. Fortunately mostly minor ones. Dozens of grazes and lacerations which are all healing pretty well, although susp...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

A house call from Luke today to swap my steering uj. He did that quickly, but not before investigating and diagnosing another issue that was causing a squeaking noise. Anyway Luke seems happy that my steering is lighter and moving more freely. Sadly I can't drive it at the moment to see for myself, ...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

So back to see Fergus today. A quick inspection of the entire suspension: - No play in any bushes although some are visibly showing their age - Same comments apply to steering u-j. Not looking too pretty and would recommend changing for peace of mind, but seemingly functioning ok - No coilover setup...

Re: Apex seal “gauges” Required?

But that's not an issue with supercharged. Indeed. I had to remind myself to write turbo in my post. For Supercharged applications I fully agree with Carl, as the extra wear of Goopies on housings is a known issue. Although in FD land every specialist seems to have a different preference when it co...

Re: Apex seal “gauges” Required?

The question with seals on a turbo FI setup is whether you want to allow the possibility of a peice of apex seal to fly through your turbine wheel and destroy that along with your engine. Goopies are quite popular with people who would answer that question with a 'no' Sent from my IN2013 using Tapat...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

The saga continues. I got a free alignment check this morning and apparently my rear wheels have different TOE settings to each other with the o/s toeing in 5.5mm and with n/s pointing out 1.5mm. I don't know how that converts to the degrees and minutes readings that you'd normally see on a printout...

I use RainSports as my daily and wet track tyres and they're great. Federals for dry days, but they can cope with a bit of wet, although not so well in the winter

Re: ***TRACKDAY Donington GP Circuit - Friday 18th December £139***

One of my first ever track days was at Mallory Park on a torrentially wet January day. I had mismatched tyres and was in my RX7 FD. I learnt a lesson that day... The electronic aids will look after you in a RX8, but having good wet and dry tyres will allow for a safer more fun experience... Sent fro...

Re: ***TRACKDAY Oulton Park - Friday 13th November SOLD OUT***

This is going to evolve rapidly. Within a matter of weeks I imagine much of the country will be in the top two tiers and trackdays will start becoming unviable under the current arrangements if too many people aren't allowed to attend. Hopefully most of us will make it to Oulton, but I'd be less con...

Re: ***TRACKDAY Oulton Park - Friday 13th November SOLD OUT***

Would that mean that us low risk types can still attend but people living near the track wouldn't be allowed? [emoji23]

If so I'm tempted to book some Northern track days on the hope of having the place mostly to myself

My first thought when hearing about all of these December birthdays, is do you guys normally get 2 presents, one for Birthdays and Xmas, or do people tend to lump them together as one gift ? How materialistic am I ? #-o My parents always made the effort to celebrate it separately, so no lumping tog...

Before you go taking bits apart Alan: I was convinced early this year that one of my arch gaps was 1cm different to the others, and was suspicious of the new PZ suspension (despite it being fitted by bigpete and having been setup by Fergus). I took the car to loads of places with flat surfaces, inc...
