Re: Connected battery - blown fuse? Advice required

So it takes a problem to bring you back to life does it? Only joking mate of course!
Fuse by fuse I reckon starting with the Room Fuse in the passenger footwell.
Good luck, need to dash.

Re: After market alarm

Just a thought about fitting the camera which will be visible. A thief would probably "allow" themselves to be filmed and then break a side window and steal the camera as their last act after decatting the car!

Nigel,

My pit crew were complaining about their accommodation while at race meetings, so I bought this bus and converted it into luxury living quarters complete with showers, beds, and tv. All happy now. It is nicer in there now than my Winnebago!

Ranjan.
Now that would be fun to use at shows!!

Re: T200 CAD Supercharged RX-8 Engine Renaissance

There is more to come I am sure but I am not going there as there is enough power from 6-8000rpm. going higher most likely will reduce the engine life significantly.

Re: Sump options; greedy or ?

RRP all the way, but I have a Greddy already. Your design incorporates numerous neat features, especially the slope toward the drain bung so that sludge etc: congregates there.

That has to be a record mileage to attend a monthly meet Nigel. Terrific support from everyone for this fledgling meet, well done everyone. I hope to get to one of your meets in the near future.

Re: No longer a member, but still about.

The two times I have done the NC500 event we have had owners joining for a day or simply for a few miles as we passed nearby. Ben should be able to guide you on how to hook up with the convoy.

Re: RX8 13BREW FD Engine Swap

I suggest a chat with Colum at GarageReg / Dyno Torque https://www.garagereg.co.uk/services up in Birmingham who transplants LS engines into RX8s and anything else his customers bring in. He also knows rotaries very well and may be able to help or even quote for the job.
