Re: DSC, On or Off?

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

After 6 months in storage i decided it was due a deep clean ready for some summer use. Full snow foam x 2, Meguires compound, Megs clear coat polish and finally a coat of carnauba wax. Silicone all black plastics and clean glass inside and out. Sweating my nuts off for 4 hrs. https://www.flickr.com...

Re: ***TRACKDAY, Brands Hatch, Friday 2nd Dec 2016***

Well done chaps, When i decided not to bring my RX and bring the Clio instead i set myself a challenge to get close to my 59.5 lap from last year. I had a few nice clear laps at the start of the afternoon session and after the morning best of 62.64s i managed a 60.04. I honestly dont think given the...

Got to be done Pete, I was trying to beat an Integra Type R which did a 101.99. My final run of the day i managed to pull a 100.61 but unfortunately didn't get that one on video.
I have the timing sheet somewhere.

I have done a sprint at Goodwood, Standing start from the line and managed a 1.42.43 Slower than last years 1.40.61 I'm pretty sure it's your time that's up there ;) I had a quick look through a random selection of videos of my visit to Goodwood in 2013 and laptimes (flying laps of course) were aro...

Re: INDICATIVE RX-8 circuit laptimes

Good to know what times you can achieve with those semi slicks on.... do you know what weight the car is?

I was told by someone that a set of list 1B tyres should give me an extra 2 secs around Brands compared to my list 1A tyres. so i would be interested to see what weight your running.

Re: North Weald Carlimits Activity Day - ***Friday 4th Nov 2016***

The noise restrictions at North Weald are a joke and whoever allowed a block of flats to be built there should be shot. I sprint at North Weald (well only going to be once this year) and have done for a few years. Our events don't start until 10.00 and stop by 4pm and they still moan even though the...

Re: North Weald Carlimits Activity Day - ***TBA Nov 2016***

Just for your info, our club have had our sprint meeting cancelled this year and our sister club B19 have had 3 events cancelled due to the restrictions being enforced about noise.

Shame as NW was one of my favourite places to play.

Re: ***TRACKDAY, Brands Hatch, Friday 4th December*** Sold Out

Agreed, Great day and some very close on track action. Thankfully every was thoughtful and observed the rules. Couple of spinners in the morning and a coupe of mechanical faults but no harm done.

Definitely beats lasts years day with plenty of track time.
