Re: Best PolyBushes setup for an R3 track only car

Re: My RX8 R3 track project

Wood is what you need and what is used, cheap to work with and cheap to replace, you need to be able to stand on the splitter for it to be functional, it also needs to be mounted to the chassis. I’m aware - was looking at black PVC / pecan polycarbonate or carbon for custom setup Not keen on wood a...

I have one but not tough enough for hard track use according to MacG - need a custom built one in carbon or plastic.

Hi Pete Thanks - I’ll look up Liam and Clive Regards Paul Hi Stripey. Glad you've finally put this on here as a proper build thread (I wonder who gave you that idea..... :whistle: ) As I mentioned elsewhere, I think it will be quite difficult to find anyone that can do bespoke bodywork, and even har...

Re: RX-8 Trophy, new racing class for 2019

Yup, but you'd be in the 3 litre class. A modest BMW E46 330i would be 50bhp up on you. I did a single New Millennium race back in 2015. Good mix of cars but you'd need a well tuned RX8 to be competitive. I was lucky it was a wet race :) Sent from my LG-H870 using Tapatalk That’s why I’ve been look...
