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

They just pull the seat squabs out leaving the backs in place. Then a cover plate is removed, the locking ring is removed and the pump cam be withdrawn but I think they just replace the actual sealing ring.
Less than an hour as a DIY task.

Re: Speed Camera Vans.. information please.

If you input your tyre sizes to this calculator it will tell you the percentage that the speedometer is inaccurate. http://www.autopartuk.com/tyre-calculator/ According this my 245/35 18 tyres should produce a sordid error of plus 4.7% yet checked against GPS it is more like 10%. Does this suggest ...

MT50? I use Redline MT-90 in mine (have changed it twice in short succession) and it grinds badly above 7k when changing into 4th, I'm not sure what it was like with the stock fluid as I didn't drive the car hard before changing to redline, doubly annoying as I chose to keep the gearbox in the Kuro...

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

I have the same issue and have just changer the oil to Red Line MT90 as that is a straight GL4 oil. Apparently GL4 / GL5 blends are too slippery for the synchro cones in the RX8 gearbox.
Snetterton next Monday will be the big test to see if it has worked. Assuming my motor lasts that long!

Based in events over the past week booking the car in for the engine swap on 24th March is looking like being excellent timing as even with a new starter I am now having hot start issues! The totally frost covered car started in around 5 seconds this morning, went for a warm up drive, stopped at the...

If you don’t get it sorted Chris, you can take mine to snetterton, rather than miss out on a track day?
Wow! That is a very generous offer Dave. Got me thinking and worrying all at the same time!

The weather yesterday scuppered my plans to fit the new starter, rear pads and change the gearbox oil so I was "forced" to finish building the front end of the rebuilt engine and clean out and paint the sump. Now stalled again on the build as I don't have an oil pick up (strainer) O ring! So today I...
