Don’t go to Hong Kong they are rioting and stuff.
Come to Mallory and we can have our own riot in a very dignified British way.

Re: Do you see many RX8's?

There is also another factor at play. It’s called “associated middle aged beauty blindness” I’ll give you an example of how it works I saw a car pulling out of a junction that was being driven by a very attractive lady, I haven’t got a clue what car she was driving as my brain only had capacity for ...

Re: Mandy's Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary RF

That is lovely!
The orange trim to the seats really sets it off.
You can tell it is brand new as the suspension hasn’t settled yet.
Nice one

BHR Coils and MSD leads ***SOLD***

Selling my now spare Black Halo Racing coils on mounting plate with MSD plug leads. These have been taken off my track car as I was tempted by RRP’s MK2 coils and couldn’t resist the group buy price. These were in full working order and ran superbly well right through the Rev range (a lot at 9,500rp...

Modern batteries are sealed as in you can’t top them up but they do have vent holes. You need to remove at least one of the plugs to allow expansion gas to escape or your battery may burst.

Re: Mates RX8 - almost starts

I know a lot of people pack the clamps out with a flat piece of lead or other supple metal.
I opened up the clamp faces and filed them away to reduce the clamp size. Worked for me.

Re: New here, howdy. from MRC.

I’ve been in various Westfields and my brother has one with a 2.0 Duarte’s with about 210hp at the fly. They do give a truly fantastic experience on track and you would need a seriously powerful road car to come close to their performance. The other thing is because of the lightweight they are very ...

Re: Alternative performance direct fit coils?

We are all very sensitive to the C word as we know our RX8 are very fussy about what coil is used on them. With other makes of car there is not so much of an issue as a failed coil usually only results in a misfire whereas with ours it can be the death of the engine. As an example VW group cars of a...

Re: Poor spark from D585 coils destroyed OEM cat

When we bought our R3 I was going to replace the coils as a matter of course to ensure the ignition system was in pristine condition. I pondered what to go for and considered D585’s as well as other options. In the end I went for OEM spec C from MRP. I have been happy with this choice and feel confi...
