Re: Compression Test Results

Have got any starting or running issues? If not then whilst the results are not brilliant you could well have many 1000s of miles left in the engine.

Re: ***TRACKDAY, Pembrey Circuit - Saturday 15th August £195***

I was expecting to see the price go to £185 with a £40 Boxing Day discount and was surprised when it appeared at £175 and a £35 discount from the code.
How Dave’s business brain works baffles me.

Re: Best engine oil for the RX8 231?

An upgraded oil pressure regulator will only “allow” a higher maximum pressure at higher revs, at idle and low revs it has no effect at all and this is where the 5w30 oil pressure can be very low hence the preference of 10w40 oil.

Re: JDM Castle Combe Rebooking options

If people are requesting refunds and these requests are confirmed as denied then as a club we could collect the names and amounts and make a consolidated demand on Combe to issue refunds.

It is very early days with this so we need to see how things developed across the members who have booked.

Re: Best engine oil for the RX8 231?

"5w30 has a viscosity of 5 when cold. A lower cold viscosity number is generally a good idea in cooler climates. If the oil is too viscous when the engine is cold, the oil will be too thick to get to where it needs to to lubricate everything. A lot of engine wear can happen in the first few mins of...
