Re: JDM Castle Combe Saturday 6th June 2020

Put me down for stand and club track session. Will probably do at least another session, just need to figure out which one(s). Could well be my last :|

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

Definitely do need to remove plugs. I discovered the previous owner (honest) did not and the mess it made was amazing. New battery had this stated on it in bold.

Saw this R3 in Leatherhead carpark yesterday. I assume it's member as there was a rx8oc sticker in the window. Image

Re: RX8 Brake Pads

The Mintex 1144 are great pads, really good feel and speed reduction. Only problem is they can be very dusty, and can be noisy if you are unlucky.

I tend to use EBC redstuff pads, to day-to-day, leaving the Mintex for track.

Re: Are octane boosters worth considering?

I tend to run Tesco's Momentum as I have noticed a difference with that compared with 95 RON, plus is pretty cheap. However the most difference I have seen is with V-Power, but not available locally. Always premix btw.

Hmm, good question about the shims, I'll double check. Cheers

Took it for a nice long journey. Fun though Mintex pads are so squeaky that I've had enough of them. Back to ebc redstuff for me.

Re: Replacement exhaust

I assume you are talking about needing a catback section. Cheapest are gonna be the Toyosport ones, functional but some people hate the noise, some like it. Next would be one from a breaking PZ, a bit heavy but sound is fine. Other than those really take your pick. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapa...

Re: No longer a member, but still about.

I've not got much to add here aside from it's only older people who think younger people use Facebook still. Stats show that the age of (active) users there is getting progressively older. Just a thought :)

Had Luke round to fit: New Essex Rotary brake lines (more on that later) New front EBC discs (cos I've used before and like them) New pads (thanks to Chris's group buy) Refurbished and painted calipers thanks to SeriousSam So, all went fairly ok.

Won't be there (I know...again), as Combe did nasty things to my brakes. Tbh I expected that, so have shiny things arriving soon \:D/

Re: JDM Castle Combe 2019 - Saturday 1st June Bring a hat and sun cream it's going to be hot

Great fun. Was a little concerned about Combe, what with its reputation, but was excellent to drive. I was probably not the fastest out there but was having a blast.
