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

Removed trackday wheels/tyres and decat in readiness for this months MOT.
Got a call from Mazda Saturday, the parts for the recall work that was scheduled for Monday haven't come in, so no trip to the dealers for me.

Re: Track day Dubai Autodrome

I like the idea of driving one way and flying one way. Driving through and camping in very remote place Would be fantastic. [-o<

Chris, don't you have some trackday funds left over from Covid 2020 :-k

Re: New RX9 engine

I can kinda see using the RX label for an all electric vehicle since the RX has been used for it's non-piston engines and electric motors do spin a bit like rotors.
A 6 pot engine? Is this not turning the RX9 into an MX5 limo?

Re: Pz Spoiler and boot lid

Looks like it is the same spoiler as the 40th Anniversary so I'd snap it up if I had somewhere to store it.

Re: ***TRACKDAY Mallory Park - Wednesday 16th September SOLD OUT***

Arrived at the hotel around 15:30. Showered and waiting for dinner time.
Great drive here through the countryside making the most of the sunshine. Andy's first drive of a rotary and learning to rev the thing. Bit different from his diesel.

I wasn't sure about tuition. It said you could sort it on the day and the more I think about it, the more I think I should have booked it.

Re: ***TRACKDAY Mallory Park - Wednesday 16th September SOLD OUT***

Anything us newbies need to bring along. So far I have torque wrench to check wheel nuts. Socket set. Tyre pressure gauge and 2-stroke oil for cofs. Helmet I better add to that.

Swapped wheels over and was surprised how nice the 595's are on the road. Should be fantastic on the track.

Re: ***TRACKDAY Mallory Park - Wednesday 16th September SOLD OUT***

I'm bringing my chair as I'll need to have somewhere comfy to sit as we are car sharing so I'll only be on track part of the time.

No email yet :(

But the final 2 tyres have turned up so off to get them fitted when I finish work at 15:00 :)

Re: It seemed like a good idea at the time...

I have been using ceramic beads in my bike tyres for years for balancing. Bit of a pain scooping them up to reuse them though.
I wonder if you could (temporarily) put water in a tyre to prove something was a balance problem :-k

similar to these things.

Re: Brake Bleeding

Does anyone cycle the ABS module when bleeding brakes?
I use the Pela pump and have not needed anyone to pump the brakes while doing so.
I always remove the bleed nipple and smother in grease to prevent air being sucked down the threads.

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

Took delivery of 2 Federal 595's. Unfortunately car needs 4 so hoping the other 2 aren't far behind. [-o<
Also found out that taking car tyres off rims is way harder than bikes. ](*,)

Re: WTB R3 Seats and Wheels

I test drove a few R3's before I bought the 40th Anniversary and prefer the "suede". R3 seats win on the cool factor.

Re: So my engine died today

I had a delivery of Millers from DT just last week, a few days after ordering.
I have used DT for many years and never had an issue.
Sucks when things do go wrong and the supplier doesn't pull their finger out to get things sorted though.

Re: Identifying/loosening alignment fixing nuts and bolts

sure you can, from experience all that will do is jack the car up :) Had the car like this for a week. Would lower it twice a day and get an air hammer on the bolt for 15 minutes. After a week I bought one of the Milwaukee saws and cut the thing off. Took maybe 10-15 minutes. Luckily I was not in a...
