Once you upgrade there is no going back. I agree though the standard set up is really good.

Re: PZ SUSPENSION (brand new) GROUP BUY !! POST UP WHEN RECEIVED

Having put my Red car back to standard suspension I went out for a drive in it today down a few of my favourite twisties. I have not dricpven a standard RX8 for around 5 years now and let's just say I nearly didn't make it back! The difference between a set of Meister Coilovers and Whiteline ARBs ve...

Re: JDM Castle Combe 2019 - Saturday 1st June

So me thinking of bringing my MX5 has kicked up a sh*t storm has it!! In that case scrub me off the list. Oh, and if being a non-RX8 owner excludes me from fully utilising the remainder of my Club membership (bought when I did have a RX8) do I get reimbursed the remainder of my subscription. The Cl...

Just an after thought if people feel this way why not add to the AGM's Agenda for a motion that all shows are RX8 only on club stand put an end one way or the other

Re: PZ SUSPENSION (brand new) GROUP BUY !! POST UP WHEN RECEIVED

My car was transformed by fitting White Line ARBs, a very noticeable roll difference. No doubt tgecsamextransfirmstion with Racing Beat ARBs. The motor difference being weight as the RB bars are hollow.

Re: JDM Castle Combe 2019 - Saturday 1st June

You are being far too extreme in your dictates Seejay. We are a very open and friendly club and I can remember you saying to me one day how terribly clique and bitchy the RS Owners club was. Yes this is the RX-8 owners club and people join initially because they have an RX-8 but I am sure you have n...

Toyo SS Cat Back £100

Needs a lit of TLC as its been on my car for 3 years. I have given it a quick once over clean but the tips need some elbow grease hence the price.
Collect from Cheltenham or at the AGM Castle Combe track day next weekend.

Aha! It has been slipped a lot due to the idling problem so maybe it's glazed. I intend to try adjusting it tomorrow to see if that makes a difference as the bite point is right at the top.

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

MOT passed with no advisories.
Fitted another MAF sensor and the car runs much better now and must be producing ore power because the clutch is now slipping. Hey ho the joys of owning a rotary.
