Re: Ranjan's MX-5 Track car.

Have just sat and read this through from page 5, where I last left off, to this point. I love reading build threads like this but am terrible at replying/commenting on them, or even doing my own. [Note to self - must start my RX8 race car build thread] Lots of great work Ranjan, and a few laughs too...

Re: First time RX-8 owner

There are things I'm sure I'll need to get fixed but since I don't know how an RX-8 is supposed to sound or feel, I don't know if there's anything obvious that needs attention. Other OC members might drive it a few yards and know that x, y and x are wrong with it but I have no experience to compare...

***TRACKDAY - Oulton Park - Friday 14th Feb £109***

I'm doing this trackday with some friends from work, but it'd be great to see some fellow RX8s come along as well. I know it's valentines day but somehow my GF agreed to it and is even coming along with me :lol: Venue: Oulton Park Date: Friday 14th Feb Format: Full open pit lane Noise Limit: 105dB S...

Re: ****TRACKDAYS for the Year****

Bit short notice but I'm doing Oulton Park on Friday 14th Feb with MSVT - Currently £109 and they appear to be doing free passengers if pre-booked. Anyone welcome to join me, I'm with a group of guys from work but there's not that many of us as yet. Link to booking - https://www.msvtrackdays.com/car...

Re: Track tyres....

We use the AR-1s on our race car (BMW E36, 180bhp/tonne) as do a lot of other guys in 750MC. For the price we've found them excellent; they will put up with a 2 hour race, although you do have to manage temps towards the end. Typically we try to get away with 2 sets for a full season which isn't bad...

Re: ^^^TRACKDAY Croft Circuit - Tue 20th Aug **SOLD OUT**^^^ '25th Birthday Celebration'

Just seen this thread again so thought I'd quickly chip in as I raced at Croft on the new surface in June. It's still a little bumpy in places. One in particular I remember is a dip right on the inside of turn 1. Don't apex too early or you risk unsettling the car more than a little! Other than that...

Re: Fantastic Tyre Review Test

Nice to see the Michelins come out well, as I intend to fit 4 to the BMW to replace the Bridgestone run-flats that it came with. Seeing as the PS4S doesn't come in 18" sizes, I'll be going for PS4 for the RX8 next, which currently has PS3 fitted. When I bought the car it had the PS3 on the front and...

Re: Oulton 2019

I've been looking for an Oulton date for the summer, as it's my home circuit and I'm racing there for the first time in September, so want to top up my local knowledge :) However, this year, for some unknown reason, all MSVT high season days are priced at £259, which is just outrageous, especially w...

Bit of a change of plan this end. My GF is getting an earlier train so I'm now in the opposite situation to before. I'll be able to stay for longer, but might be a little late getting there :lol:
