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

I should have taken more notice of the warnings as that flat tyre must have been pretty flat when I was still using it.
As a result it is too damaged to repair and I have had to buy a replacement. 😢

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

Discovered today that I have a slow flat on the offside rear tyre, which would explain the above.

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

Filled it before the final leg of a very enjoyable round trip of home- Cardiff - Bath and back (over the w/e). BUT...
On the way back really noticed it pulls to the right on acceleration and to the left when I lift off. Not massively, but definitely.
Why would it do that?

Re: South Wales Run & Meet - Saturday 15th September, 16:15

Well if you fancy a bit of a run, how about Llandeilo - Llandovery - Sennybridge - Abercraf - home? You will know [ I suppose] the most interesting road to Llandeilo (I don't) ; to Llandovery is a fast, open road (easy cruise [at the national speed limit, of course :) ] ) To Sennybridge is twisty. :...

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

It had been sitting idling, having had a run 30' before.
At the start of the process, the oil-filled tube was almost too hot to hold.

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

I used a vacuum pump [like a Pela] to change engine oil today, but only got 2 1/2 litres out, even after jacking up the nearside [no difference] and then the driver's side [got the last 1/2 litre]. lots of bubbles at the end, and the tube was as far down the dipstick tube as it could go. The car was...

Re: PZ SUSPENSION (brand new) GROUP BUY !! CLOSED MONDAY 21st MAY

Probably a silly suggestion but is it possible the gators appear in a different part of the EPC because they're rubber or because there are considered service items or something like that.? Just clutching at straws really.

I'm pleased to hear you are (more or less) at the end of your saga, Huw. Could you not take any of the bits need fitting before an MOT along to rotary revs and fit them or indeed have rotary revs to fit them for you# and then you can get it MOT'd and save any costs involved in recovering it to your ...

Chris, it was originally written as a radio series and that is its purest form but it's also very good reading in a series of books.
In my view Douglas Adams' flights of imagination are incapable of being depicted on the screen.

As it happens I'm just re-reading Life the Universe and Everything . It explains that bistromathics is a revolutionary new way of understanding the behaviour of numbers. Just as time and space are not absolute nor are numbers.

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

Used it to do a very local shopping trip today. On a journey like that it's very difficult to do a beep and knowing the advice is to beep it at least once every time you go out it sent me wondering what is the actual reasoning behind that. Would taking it to , say , 6000 revs for a longer period ach...

Looked at it longingly as I arrived back in the family wagon from a trip to Cardiff where I met somebody selling a p z. I've posted what I know of that in the for sales section.

Thanks for the important info on jacking points, but in my ignorance I need to know:-

If S2 is series 2, what is R3 and what's the difference?
